Description (Specifications)[edit]

Using a 600-ton hull, the clan transport is a large freight and passenger vessel used by clans and companies for service of major trade routes. It has jump drive-H, maneuver drive-H, and power plant-H, giving the ship performance of jump-2 and 2-G acceleration. Fuel tankage of 140 tons supports the power plant and allows one jump-2. Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/2 computer. There are 25 staterooms and 30 low berths. There are six hardpoints and six tons allocated for fire control. No weaponry is initially installed. A 95-ton shuttle (capable of transporting 20 passengers and 55 tons of cargo) is carried as ship's vehicle. Cargo capacity is 137 tons, but the shuttle cargo bay is generally filled as well, increasing capacity to 192 tons. The ship is unstreamlined.

The transport requires a crew of six: pilot, navigator, three engineers, and purser. Stewards must be added if nobles are carried. A medic may be added if desired. Gunners can be added if the ship is armed. The ship can carry up to 1 9 passengers and thirty low passengers. The pilot operates the shuttle. The ship costs MCr257.79 (including 10% discount for standard designs) and takes 22 months to build.
