Description (Specifications)[edit]

Vargr Corsair (Type VP): Using a 400-ton hull, the Vargr Corsair is an interstellar raiding vessel used by bands of Vargr brigands. It mounts Jump drive-D, Maneuver drive-K, and Power plant-K, giving a performance of Jump-2 and 5G acceleration. Fuel tankage for 130.0 tons supports the power plant and one Jump-2. Adjacent to the bridge is a model/2 computer. There are 12 staterooms and five emergency low berths. The ship has four hardpoints and four tons allocated to fire control. Installed on the hardpoints are four triple turrets: Two carry triple beam lasers and two carry triple missile racks. There are three ship's vehicles: Two G-Carriers, and one modular cutter. The modular cutter has two open modules, and space in the hold is provided for the spare. Cargo capacity is 20.0 tons. The ship is streamlined.

The Vargr Corsair requires a crew of 10: pilot, navigator, 3 engineers, medic, and four gunners. The ship can easily carry a crew of 24, which would include raiders or boarding party members. Ship's vehicles are operated by available skilled personnel. This ship does not normally carry passengers. The ship costs MCr213.0696 (...including architect's fees and discounts for this standard ship type, but prices may vary) and takes 16 months to build.

The ship has an Agility of 3 and an Emergency Agility of 5.
