[[File:J2 200dT Trader.jpg]] <br>The venerable ''Wulf'' class Free Trader.
+
 
+
=== Hull ===
+
The Free Trader is constructed using a 200-dTon hull built in a generally cone-shaped configuration. The hull is fully streamlined: the ship is equipped with fuel scoops.
+
* Individual sections of the ship are divided by bulkhead walls. Sections of the ship can be isolated in the event of an emergency.
+
* The hull includes internal grav plates and inertial compensators. All accessible sections of the hull have life support.
+
 
+
=== Engineering ===
+
The vessel mounts a [[DeVoss Drive|DeVoss]]-type jump-2 drive, a maneuver-2 drive, and a power plant 2, giving performance of jump-2 and 2G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 1 and an emergency agility of 2. There is fuel tankage of 44 dTons, sufficient for one jump-2 and giving the power plant four weeks duration.
+
* The jump drive utilises a lanthanum hull grid.
+
* The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.
+
 
+
=== Main Section ===
+
Adjacent to the bridge is a computer model/2. There are 6 staterooms and 10 low berths. Each member of the crew has private quarters: if the crew elect to go double occupancy, up to three paying passengers may be accommodated. Cargo capacity amounts to 70 dTons.
+
* The vessel is fitted with communications equipment and a sensor suite.
+
 
+
==== Crew ====
+
The Free Trader requires 6 crew: 2x command, 1x engineering, 2x gunnery, and 1x service.
+
 
+
=== Weapons ===
+
The ship is fitted with two turrets:
+
* one triple turret mounting beam lasers
+
* one triple turret mounting missile racks
+
+
=== Subcraft ===
+
The ship has a dedicated hanger able to house a vehicle of up to 4-dTons, though no subcraft or vehicles are provided.
+
 
+
=== Cost ===
+
The basic cost of the vessel is MCr107.930.
+
* The ship is a standard design. Detailed architectural plans are widely available and no design fee is chargeable.
+
* If multiple examples of the design are ordered all of the ships in the production run qualify for a 20% discount, which reduces their price to MCr86.344.
+
 
+
== History / Background ==
+
A design that dates to the time of the [[Terran Confederation]]. The design is representative and a large number of variants exist, particularly with regard to the allotted weapons systems, onboard electronics, and the fit out of internal spaces.
