The Freelancer is a medium-sized long range cargo hauler manufactured by MISC. The Freelancer's modularity, versatility, and firepower have made it extremely popular among owner-operators and major corporations alike. The chassis also serves as the base for several specialized variants. The Freelancer was the first ship class to be developed as part of a unique technology-sharing agreement with the Xi'an government.[1]

Features

  • Cargo: The ship is capable of accommodating up to 66 SCU of cargo within its hold, as well as 66,000K μSCU of internal stowage. Thanks to its rear ramp, the ship is also capable of carrying ground vehicles, from the Dragonfly to the PTV to the ROC.
  • Crew Accommodation: While the Freelancer can be flown solo, it can carry a crew of up to four people. Each crew-mate can enjoy their own bed in the crew area, along with a shared kitchenette and bathroom.
  • Weapons: With a pair of pilot controlled turrets on the side of the ship, each capable of carrying a pair of Size 3 guns each, a rear manned turret which can hold a pair of Size 2 guns and racks that can carry four Size 3 and four Size 2 missiles, the Freelancer can hit back hard if attacked.

History

The Freelancer follows the MiSC-HI concept of extreme modularity on a smaller, more distinctive hull. Initially marketed as an efficient long-haul merchant ship for private enterprises, the Freelancer quickly became the ship of choice for dedicated explorers. With the range of a transport plus room to install advanced scanning and jump technology, Freelancers have enabled their captains to chart a number of new jump points in recent years. With a noted engine upgrade capacity and the ability to maneuver better than any other dedicated transport ship, it is no wonder the Freelancer's roles continue to expand.

It can also be said of the Freelancer that it has inspired more debate than any other spacecraft on the market. Detractors claim the hull is unattractive, that the cockpit's field of view is unnecessarily limiting and that on paper it is not suited to the roles it has expanded to fill. The Freelancer's supporters, however, are equally dedicated to the ship. They argue vehemently that the ship is the secret of their business success: that rare cost-effective ship that fulfills many of the same roles as the RSIConstellation, but requiring far fewer crew.

In some sense, the Freelancer image has begun to appear at odds with that of MISC itself: dashing space captains charting new frontiers on a wing and a prayer versus heavily organized corporate governance. The truth is, the Freelancer project would not exist without that governance. Every aspect that makes the design popular for independent pilots was carefully researched, analyzed, tested and produced. From the optimal radar package placement to the vacuum form cupholders, the components of the Freelancer went through hundreds of thousands of man-hours in an effort to produce a design that comes together seamlessly.[2]
