This thread will describe the various small ships used by the Targ.

----------

Shuttle Pods
Type 1 Shuttle Pod
Light Short-range transport
Accomodation: 3 Pilot, Systems Manger, Mission Specialist or Passenger
Armament: 2 Type III Micro Laser cannons
Preformance: 12,800 m/sec.
Powerplant: 4 high capacity lithium batteries
Length: 5 meters
Mass: 0.86 metric tons
Hyperdrive: None

The type 1 shuttle pod is the standard shuttle carried aboard all Targ vessels, stations, and ground bases. It is typically used for transporting crew between ships, from ship, or orbiting station, to planet, or for inspecting the exterior of a ship, when work bees are not up to the task. Not equiped with a hyper-drive, and only batteries for power, this ship makes a poor choice for interstellar travel, a role larger craft are usually assigned to.

Type 2 Shuttle Pod
Medium Short-range transport
Accomodation: 4 Pilot, Systems Manger, 2 Mission Specialists or Passengers
Armament: 2 Type III Micro Laser cannons
Preformance: 12,800 m/sec.
Powerplant: 4 high capacity lithium batteries
Length: 5.5 Meters
Mass: 1 metric tons
Hyperdrive: None

The type 2 shuttle pod is a slighly longer version of the type 1, allowing an extra passenger. The preformace is the same between the craft, except for the type 2's enchanced range.


Type 3 Shuttle Pod
Heavy Short-range transport
Accomodation: 6 Pilot, Systems Manger, 4 Mission Specialists or Passengers
Armament: 2 Type III Micro Laser cannons
Preformance: 12,800 m/sec.
Powerplant: Micro Anti-Matter reactor
Length: 7 Meters
Mass: 1.5 metric tons
Hyperdrive: Class 9

The type 3 is a larger shuttle pod designed for ferrying people between planets, and is equipped with a very slow hyper-drive generator. It can also hold 2 more passengers than the type 2.

Personelle Shuttles


Type 4 Personelle Transporter
Light Medium-range transport
Accomodation: 8 Pilot, Systems Manger, 2 Mission Specialists or Passangers
Armament: 4 Type III Micro Laser cannons
Preformance: 20,000 m/sec.
Powerplant: Micro Anti-Matter reactor
Length: 10 Meters
Mass: 3 metric tons
Hyperdrive: Class 5

The Type 4 is twice as long as a shuttle pod, and can hold twice as many people. These craft are equiped with hyperdrives, of resonable speed, allowing them to act as reliable transports between star systems. Like their cousins, the type ones, these are carried on all Targ ships, stations, and installations.

Type 5 Personelle Transporter
Medium Medium-range transport
Accomodation: 8 Pilot, Systems Manger, 2 Mission Specialists or Passangers
Armament: 4 Type III Micro Laser cannons
Preformance: 25,000 m/sec.
Powerplant: Micro Anti-Matter reactor
Length: 10.5 Meters
Mass: 4 metric tons
Hyperdrive: Class 4

The Type 5 is a faster, larger variant on the type 4, used for longer distances.

Type 6 Personelle Transporter
Medium Medium-range transport
Accomodation: 8 Pilot, Systems Manger, 4 Mission Specialists or Passangers
Armament: 6 Type III Micro Laser cannons
Preformance: 25,000 m/sec.
Powerplant: Micro Anti-Matter reactor
Length: 10.5 Meters
Mass: 4 metric tons
Hyperdrive: Class 4

The Type 6 is a more heavilty armed shuttle, for use in more dangerous sitiuations.

Type 7 Personelle Transport
Heavy Medium Range-transport
Accomodation 12 Pilot, Systems Manager, 10 mission specialists or passengers
Armament: 2 Type VI Micro laser cannons, 1 micro missle launcher
Preformance: 20,000 m/sec
Powerplant: Micro Antimatter reactor, 2 high-capacity lithium storage cells
Length: 14 meters
Mass: 5.5 metric tons
Hyperdrive: Class 4

The Type 7 is the largest personelle shuttle carried aboard Targ ships, and is only assigned to larger vessels, or starbases.

Cargo Shuttles

Class 8 Cargo Hauler
Light Long-range cargo hauler
Accomodation: 3 Pilot, Systems Manager, Cargo specialist

Powerplant: Micro Anitmatter reactor, 2 high cpacity litium storage cells.
Length: 20 meters
Mass: 10 metric tons.
Hyperdrive: Class 7

The type 8 is a large shuttle designed to haul light cargo between ships. It has two laser cannons, and enough cargo space to hold a work pod.

Class 9 Cargo Hauler
Medium Long-range cargo hauler
Accomodation: 3 Pilot, Systems Manager, Cargo specialist
Capacity: 15 metric tons of cargo
Armament: 2 Type VI micro laser cannons
