Another remake of an old XWA Release:
This ship is an armed Freighter of roughly 150m length. Sluggish but sturdy it is used by corporate security forces to haul sizable freight of value and/or to escort freight convoys across unsafe territory. As such, it carries a number of defensive gatling turrets but no offensive weaponry. The crew quarters offer cryo tubes for up to 15 crew.

Build Details
Length: 150m
Blocks: 6486
Grid Mass: 4,171,866 kg

The ship is fully connected and capable of atmospheric flight, even on high gravity worlds. It generally uses a combination of hydrogen, ion and atmospheric thrusters, and features a set of landing gears on pistons, which would (theoretically) allow it to level out on uneven terrain. I've also made it as lightweight as possible to limit the fuel consumption during Thruster burn upon leaving planets.

Origin & development
This build is a 1:1 scale recreation of the Liberator-class Corvette I've released years ago for XWA as part of the Blue Phantom Project, with a few minor alterations. As such I have addedd a blastdoor and boarding ramp to the hangar bay so it can not only hold a small fighter but also some kind of land vehicle. I slightly reduced the number of weapons for connectivity and balance purposes. Also, the freight space, while considerable, is not as massive as it 'could' be since the engineering section does require a bit of space. I've decided to change the name as it no longer reflects the ship's background and purpose.

+ Fully connected and pressurized, survival ready
+ Depression, gate and boarding ramp mechanics for Hangar
+ Various Display scripts and timer presets
+ Red Alert & Self Destruct sequence

Available via the Steam Workshop
