The small and efficient MISC Hull A is the entry-level model in the Hull series. Featuring a retracting external cargo spindle and powerful engines, this ship has the largest cargo capacity in its size class. Care should be taken when traveling in low-security areas, however: the Hull A lacks significant offensive or defensive capabilities, with armament limited to a pair of forward-facing size 1 distortion repeaters. In addition to its standard use as a light hauler, the Hull A is often used as a surface-to-orbit ferry.[1]

Features

  • Telescoping Cargo Spindle: Compact when retracted and capable of accommodating up to 64 SCU of cargo when expanded, the Hull A's spindle gives the ship both a unique profile and a very high cargo capacity.
  • Dynamic Spindle Loading: Loading and unloading cargo is a speedy, hands-off experience; saving the pilot time and money at both ends of a profitable cargo run.
  • Crew accommodation: The single-person crew enjoys a generously appointed cabin amidships featuring a kitchenette, full washroom, weapons locker, suit locker, a bunk that doubles as an escape pod, and convenient access to the ship's internal storage.
  • Airlock: The side airlock offers convenient planetside or EVA access, and can also be used as a ship-to-ship docking port.

Testimonial

“I bought my first [Hull] A used, when I was first starting out… her previous owner had named her SNUGBUG and try as I might to come up with something else, the name stuck. Snugbug and I had some good times. I got my start flying short runs; ground to starside, starside to ground to pick up crates off the bulk freighters over and over to make a name for myself. Spent more on fuel than I ever did flying duration missions! By the time I was worth a journeyman hauler rating, Snugbug was outfitted well enough to fend off the occasional pirate and I started moving whatever I could cross-system to make a ‘cred. Weirdest thing I ever shipped? It was livestock, grown on Terra… these weird cube-shaped chickens. Looked like meaty rectangles. Had to have a special transport module so they could breathe vacuum in-flight. I kid you not. Never saw anything like it, but the Banu ate them up. Literally.”

- Captain Ike Chamner, Free Trader [2]

Series variants

Image Name Description
HullBConcept.jpg
Hull B The Hull B is a capable, efficient cargo ship most often compared to MISC’s own Freelancer. But where the Freelancer is equipped for long range exploration and other roles, the Hull B is a pure cargo transport.
Hull-C over moon - Port.jpg
Hull C The middle ground between single-person transporters and massive super-freighters.
HullDConcept.jpg
Hull D The Hull D kicks off the larger end of the spectrum with a massive ship built around a rugged frame.
HullEConcept.jpg
Hull E The ultimate edition of the Hull series. The Hull E is one of the largest player owned ships in the game and requires proper planning and preparation for the trips it will make.
