1000-Dton Pod Merchant Freighter

This freighter is a workhorse to haul cargo between systems. It consists of a 200-dton main ship module that contains crew quarters, drives, power plants and enough fuel to run them.  This module attaches to a 200-dton fuel module that holds the fuel required to power the Jump Drive. Behind this a 600-dton cargo module can be attached.

The idea is that the fuel and cargo modules are pre-prepared by the freight company. The ship docks with the attached modules, jumps to target destination and offloads both fuel and cargo modules and picks up a fresh load for the next leg of it’s jump.  The cargo module shown in the plans below is a standard pressurised cargo module. Other modules include bulk ore/gas/liquid modules and passenger modules.
