Description (Specifications)[edit]

Union (of) Garth Space Navy Design Plan. This vessel is constructed from a standard design plan which uses a time-tested design features. Assembled from largely pre-fabricated kits, commercial shipyards can quickly build these ships. A naval architectural firm produces these plans in four weeks for 1% of the final ship cost. Because these hulls are so standardized and have been in use for so long, a 10% discount is available. These hulls are familiar and easy to build. With a small down payment these vessels are made available with government backed financing.
