Gofer Class Fuel/Cargo Shuttle

design by Franklin W. Cain


The Gofer shuttle is normally carried by a Tycoon Trader, but other modular ships such as the Aurora clipper series can carry them.

Notes

  • When docked with a _Tycoon_ Modular Trader, the Shuttle provides the 25 MW needed by the _Tycoon_ for the maneuver drive's increased power usage.
  • Whenever a laser turret is installed, it is customary to plan for "overpowering" the weapon, as this is easily achieved whenever the Shuttle is docked with a _Tycoon_ Modular Trader. (The Radio, Active EMS, and CG Lifters on the Shuttle are unneeded and thus powered down, freeing a total of 17 MW with which to "overpower" the laser weapon.)
