Petty class Subsidized Merchant

The Petty class Subsidized Merchants is a mercantile warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

They were originally built to haul bulk cargo along the many commercial "mains" of the Third Imperium, the government subsidy making it possible to transport moderate-value consumer goods at competitive prices, and thus prompting greater commercial and cultural homogeneity throughout the realm.

The ship itself displaces 390 tons; with its launch it displaces 400 tons. Jump, maneuver, and contra-grav drives are all configured to support 400 tons.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Rebellion: Now that many of the former high-population worlds have become cold and lifeless rocks, the former trade-rich mains are often no longer economically viable, and commercially successful starships usually require jump-2 capability. While a handful of the old Petty-class ships have been renovated with more capable drives, most have fallen into disuse and disrepair, their electronics cannibalized to keep more valuable ships operational.

There are still occasional mains with enough commercial vitality to keep jump-1 ships in business, however, and old Petty-class ships (along with old Free Traders) can still be found plying the old trade routes.
