- The smallest, most affordable Hull. The Hull A is great for those just striking out in the galaxy on their own. The Hull A is most similar to the Aurora and Mustang, but lacks the ‘jack of all trades’ nature. Where the others trade cargo capacity for firepower or speed, the Hull A is 100% on-mission transport! Additionally, Hull A (and B) are often used as station-to-orbit ferries. The Hull A is a freighter developed by MISC. The smallest and most affordable of the Hull series, the Hull A has limited defensive and maneuvering capabilities compared with similarly sized craft but has commensurate carrying capacity. Many corporations have utilized Hull A as a solution for the short-range transport of goods from larger freighters to planetary surfaces.
- The Hull B is a more rugged option most often compared to MISC’s own Freelancer. But where the Freelancer is equipped for long-range exploration and other roles, the Hull B is a pure cargo transport. Hull B are often used as corporate support ships, and it is not uncommon to spot several in different liveries during a single flight. The Hull B is a freighter developed by Musashi Industrial & Starflight Concern (MISC) as part of the Hull series of spacecraft. Designed to handle a larger cargo payload than the Hull A, the B model’s monotasking focus on hauling means that while it is not as versatile as some other haulers in its class like MISC’s own Freelancer-line, it is quite capable in its area of expertise. It is often utilized by corporations for space-terrestrial transfer.
- Often called the most common ship in the galaxy, the Hull C is the most-produced of the range and is considered by many to be the most versatile. Intended to hit the ‘sweet spot’ between the smaller single-person transports and the massive super freighters that make up the rest of the range, the Hull C offers the expansive modularity of the larger ships while still retaining a modicum of the maneuverability allowed the low end of the range. The Hull C is a modular bulk freighter produced by Musashi Industrial & Starflight Concern (MISC). It is capable of transporting large quantities of goods attached to the frame in standard cargo containers. The Hull C is the standard-bearer of the Hull line and is marketed as an adaptable solution to corporations requiring a fleet of smaller transports, as well as smaller businesses and organizations.
- The Hull D kicks off the larger end of the spectrum with a massive ship built around a rugged frame. Hull D is affordable enough to be operated by mid-sized organizations and companies. Hull D are often used as flagships for mercantile operations, but their bulk means that they should be operated with escort fighters while not in safe space. The UEE military uses modified Hull D as part of their supply chain, arming and refueling the soldiers on the front line. The Hull D is a modular bulk freighter produced by Musashi Industrial & Starflight Concern (MISC). The Hull D is the second-largest freighter in the Hull line and is capable of transporting large quantities of goods attached to the frame in standard cargo containers. The Hull D is typically operated by mid-sized corporations or larger organizations and frequently serves as the flagship for mercantile groups. The United Empire of Earth (UEE) armed forces use a modified version of the Hull D in logistics operations, the ship forming an important part of the supply chain refueling and rearming soldiers on the front lines.
- The largest specialized freighter available on the market today, the Hull E is generally owned by major corporations and operated with a high degree of planning. The lack of maneuverability inherent in such a large ship means that anyone planning to operate them should be careful about equipping turrets and providing escort. Their potential load (and modularity) is unparalleled, however: no other ship allows as much room to store goods or to modify towards another role! The Hull E is a modular bulk freighter produced by Musashi Industrial & Starflight Concern (MISC). It is the largest freighter in the Hull line and is capable of transporting a higher quantity of cargo than any other dedicated transport MISC produces. Due to high operating costs and the massive volume of goods required to outfit the ship to capacity, Hull E is typically utilized by larger corporations. Because their maneuverability is low, MISC recommends to its owners that they travel with escort craft.
