Cargo Class Freighter (
Displacement: 6000 tons, fully loaded, 11,000 tons
Power Plant: Two boilers, geared turbines, two shafts, 22,000 total shaft horsepower
Speed: 19 knots
Length: 441 ft.
Beam: 59 ft.
Draft: 20 ft.
Crew: 150
Description: These are simply inexpensive, abundant freighters with limited cargo capacity. They are an abundant design, and sometimes are bought by smugglers and modified for greater speed, for smuggling and blockade running of course. The captains of these ships are often willing to haul nearly anything.

Cost: $5.2 Million

Smuggler Class Freighter
Displacement: 6000 tons, fully loaded, 9,000 tons
Power Plant: Four General Electric LM 2500-30 gas turbines; two shafts, 100,000 total
shaft horsepower
Speed: 19 knots cruising speed, capable of 25 knots for short periods, in an emergency can make it up to 28 knots. However, this is not recommended as it places severe stress on the structure of the ship.
*All tests were with ships carrying full cargo loads.
Length: 441 ft.
Beam: 59 ft.
Draft: 20 ft.
Crew: 150
Description: These are ships that are designed to be fast freighters. They are designed for smuggling, pure and simple. The governments of Harlesburg and those that kindly support our sale of these fine vessels P3X1299 officially frowns on smuggling, however, unofficially, it actually encourages the practice because it can lead to marked increase in profits. This ship has become available on the market because of that stance. Once again, this is a variation of the Cargo Class freighter.

Cost: $9.2 Million

More to come. ;)

The Free Lands of Nedalia would like to make an order of 2 Geminis from Harlesburg Shipping Co. We have the means to pay for them upfront, a total of $6.6 we are led to believe. We do, however, need to know how soon the ships can be delived to the Kafra Seaport. Thank you in advance for your prompt reply. A TG will be sufficient.
