The MPUV-1C (Multi-Purpose Utility Vehicle Cargo), or more commonly known as the Argo Cargo, is a light transport ship manufactured by Argo Astronaustics and is designed to transfer small amounts of freight over a short distance. The cargo pod can also accommodate a single passenger.

Many are responsible for loading/unloading goods onto massive vessels that have difficulty either landing or using drydocks, such as the Hull D or the Orion. Some captains choose to own and operate their MPUV-1C, while others pay privately owned ships operating as port services a rental fee for performing the unloading process.[1][2] Many MPUV-1Cs are also used to conduct ship-to-ship transfers between capital ships such as the Javelin and Idris.

Features

Durable
Built out of composite alloys capable of withstanding intense temperature and structural pressures both in atmosphere and out.
Modular Pods
The modular undercarriage can be outfitted with a variety of different pods such as cargo pods and escape pods which can be attached and detached on command.
Point-Precision Engines
The combined VTOL thrusters and its Point-Precision Engines allows precise maneuvers and heavy-lifting thrust.[3]

Development

The MPUV-1C received a visual update in Alpha 3.13.0 patch.[5]

Trivia

In 2021, the MPUV-1C won the 2951 Ship Showdown competition. It reached the last 16 knockout stage of the competition thanks to a strong push by backers.[6] Despite the ship being inferior in many respects, the MPUV-1C reached the grand final where it narrowly defeated the popular Mercury Star Runner, 18,211 votes to 18,037. The winner influenced the design of a new, officially licensed in-game backpack available for free to all backers who attend the the 2951 IAE event and all owners of the MPUV-1C will receive a free limited-edition ship livery and leather jacket for their character.[7]

The MPUV was offered as Referral Bonus with LTI in two situations. First during the Free Fly for the patch 3.15 and Second during the Luminalia 2952.
