Four Consolidated Outland Mustang variants were offered, The CNOU Mustang Alpha, Mustang Beta, Mustang Delta, and Mustang Gamma.
- The Mustang Alpha is a single-seat civilian spacecraft in the Mustang line of spacecraft developed and sold by Consolidated Outland. It was developed to the specifications of company founder and CEO Silas Koerner, who intended it to offer radical competition to Roberts Space Industries’ Aurora line of ships. The Alpha can be purchased with an optional cargo expansion. Mustang variants include the Mustang Beta touring craft, the Mustang Gamma racing ship, and the Mustang Delta militia spacecraft. Inspired by Consolidated Outland CEO Silas Koerner’s cutting edge vision, the Mustang Alpha is a sleek, stylish spacecraft that uses ultralight alloys to push power ratios to the limits, albeit sometimes unsafely. And now, with the optional Cargo Carrier, you can have the Alpha’s advantages without sacrificing carrying capacity.
- The Mustang Beta is a variant of the Mustang civilian spacecraft developed by Consolidated Outland. Officially classified as a touring and exploration ship, the Mustang Beta is an extended-range variant of the Mustang Alpha with a series of updates to appeal to cost-conscious explorers. Consolidated Outland ships the Mustang Beta with a hardened Tarsus Leaper jump engine as well as a small rear cabin with room for amenities and life support equipment. The Mustang Beta, with its unprecedented range, is made for long-duration flights. The factory standard Tarsus Leaper Jump Engine enables the Beta to travel to the galaxy’s farthest systems with ease, while the ship’s unique Com4T living quarters will make the journey feel like you never left home.
- The Mustang Delta is a variant of the Mustang civilian spacecraft developed by Consolidated Outland. Marketed primarily to militia users in less protected areas of space, the Mustang Delta trades some of the speed and maneuverability of the base model in exchange for the addition of larger main guns and a pair of missile hardpoints. While it may not be able to go toe to toe with some of the military-specific ships, by reinforcing the Mustang’s already strong hull construction with Consolidated Outland’s own line of Cavalry Class Mass Reduction Armor, the Delta has a reduced cross-sectional signature that evens the playing field.
- The Mustang Gamma is a variant of the Mustang civilian spacecraft developed by Consolidated Outland. The first racer variant of the Mustang, it was later followed by the limited-edition Mustang Omega. Consolidated Outland engineers reduced the overall weight of the base model for the Gamma and upgraded the standard engines. The redesign includes a general improvement in maneuverability over the standard Mustang in exchange for an overall reduction in missiles and guns. Consolidated Outland’s design and engineering teams have managed to tweak and refine the Mustang into an admirable racer. The end result, the Mustang Gamma, has smooth acceleration, and power on demand thanks to an innovative package featuring three powerful Magma Jet engines for maximum thrust.
