The Aoa'iw class Light Trader is an Aslan mercantile starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

A popular design inside the Hierate, especially in the Trojan Reach, the little Aoa’iw is a 300-ton trader that combines a sizable cargo bay with space for passengers, enough firepower to serve as a raider or defend itself from piracy and vehicles to support a flexible mission profile. Aoa’iws are often owned by clans, as they can perform a variety of tasks. The normal crew consists of a captain/pilot, navigator, purser, engineer and two gunners (one of whom also is a small craft pilot). Up to 4 passengers can be carried. On the border worlds, the Aoa’iw is nicknamed the ‘pouncer’, as it does resemble a crouching animal from certain angles. [1]
