The Type RX class Merchant Trader is a mercantile starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The RX is a larger version of the Type-R. With the additional tonnage comes more capacity, a secure armoured vault and better comfort for the crew and passengers. Unlike the Type-R the launch is replaced by a larger Ship’s Boat that has its own full hangar. Though the standard model is not fitted with armament there is room for five turrets and ammunition.

Normal crew consists of 1 Captain, 2 Pilots, Navigator, 2 Engineers and a Steward/Medic. Normal passenger capacity is 10 and 12 in Low Berths. Gunners are usually added or existing crew fill the role. The Type-RX is a TL-12 design.
