The Type AT class Freighter is a standard Tukera Lines transport ship design, and provides freight-handling service along the many Tukera routes within the Third Imperium. Tukera's freighters sport a variety of names, often vaguely reminiscent of advertising slogans: Golden Harvest, Safety First, or Star Lines.
Using a 3000-ton hull, the Tukera freighter is a main-route cargo vessel employed in freight transport activities throughout the Imperium.It mounts jump drive Z, maneuver drive Q, and power plant Z, giving performance of jump-4 and 1G acceleration. Fuel tankage for 1240 tons supports the power plant and one jump-4. Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/4 computer. There are 25 staterooms and 5 emergency low berths. The ship has 10 hardpoints and 10 tons allocated to fire control, Only two triple turrets are generally installed; each carries a heterogeneous mix of one beam laser, one missile rack, and one sandcaster. There is one ship's vehicle: a 95-ton shuttle. Cargo capacity for the freighter is 1259 tons; the shuttle can be carried with its 70 ton cargo bay filled as well. The hull is not streamlined.
The Tukera freighter requires a crew of 15: captain/pilot, navigator, 7 engineers, medic, steward, shuttle pilot, and 2 gunners. It can carry up to 8 high passengers and 2 middle passengers. The ship costs MCr809.01 [including 10% discount for quantity production, and 1% architect's fee) and takes 34 months to build
