A Cylinder Hull is a kind of ship structure, fuselage, chassis, or hull.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Cylinder Hulls are a very common hull for space-dedicated hulls not intending to make planetfall. The hull can be designed with considerable structural integrity.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Ring Hulls are more commonly used on space stations than on drive-equipped hulls. Spin Habitats are a common feature before the advent of practical gravity control technology in TL:10-12.
