Variants: The "G Boat" is available in many variants:
- Gunboat (Model G/A): The Model G/A has two modular turrets, added internal armor and weapons capacity. Intended for short-endurance operation, it has a crew of four - Commander, Pilot/Navigator, Gunner and Engineer.
- Dispatch Boat (Model G/C): Equipped for courier duty, with large message data storage banks, self-defensive armament and space for a crew of 2-3 plus passengers, nearly 450 handle communications duties for the Caledonian Navy - 3/4 of the dispatch boat fleet.
- Diplomatic Courier (Model G/V): The Model G/V is designed to carry diplomats safely and securely on assignments. It is unarmed, has space for a flight crew of 3, and a diplomatic team of 4.
- Scout Vessel (Model G/R): Equipped with a pair of turrets, an extensive sensor fit and space for a crew of 4-6 (and stores to keep them on station for 90 days), the G/R is the backbone of the Royal Caledonian Expeditionary Service's scout force, as well as those of several nearby states and even a few Imperial and Aslan system fleets. Close to 900 serve in the RCES alone.
- Transport/Cargo (Model G/T): A commonly-used Free Trader.
- Yacht (Model G/Y): This version - basically a commercial version of the G/V - is sold commercially, and is a favorite among the pragmatic wealthy, providing quarters for a combination of 8-10 flight crew, guests and family. It's not THE most luxurious yacht available, but it is a great value for the money - and some custom interiors are absolutely stunning.
