The MISC Hull B is medium-sized cargo vessel that sits roughly halfway between the Constellation Taurus and the Caterpillar in terms of hauling capacity. Although the Hull B is known for being quite rugged, it is a pure cargo transport and thus not suited for most other roles. The Hull B is used by corporations and Citizens alike in large numbers, and it is not uncommon to spot several in different liveries during a single flight.[1]

Testimonial

“I know it’s a cliche, but when I started my company I had nothing but the spacesuit on my back. We had this great idea to overclock laser weapons and sell them to enthusiasts… but the biggest loan the bank would give us wouldn’t even cover a ‘MAX. I saved up enough extra creds to afford a Hull B [instead of an A] knowing it’d be years before I was able to fill it up. Long story short, we had leased a second and then a third before the year was out. I still have that first ‘worker B,’ outfitted as a mobile office for the corp!”

- Captain Mellana Oarman, Catcom Laser Limited

Series variants

For most of the concern’s history, the majority of MISC’s business has come from the production output of its heavy industrial division. MISC-HI is chiefly responsible for the Hull series range of configurable bulk transport spacecraft that have become ubiquitous in UEE space. These sturdy, modular hulls are the basis for the majority of Human corporate shipping. Their unexpected popularity among the Xi’an has spawned an unlikely business relationship (and a string of imitators on the other side of the border).

When the line launched in 2802, four standard models ranged in size from the efficient Hull A to the gargantuan Hull D. The Hull series quickly revolutionized interstellar freight, leading to the standardization of dockyards and cargo processes around the UEE. This led to long-ranging knock-on effects, including over a dozen outside companies being founded or significantly shifting focus to support the Hull design, such as Argo Astronautics launching its MPUV line of short-range cargo ferries. In 2820, MISC developed a fifth ‘super-freighter’, the Hull E, which has since become the de facto interplanetary bulk goods transporter, with docks around the galaxy moving cargo containers back and forth from the huge ships around the clock[2]

Image Name Description
Hull-A in space - Isometric.jpg
Hull A The smallest, most affordable Hull. The Hull A is great for those just striking out in the galaxy on their own.
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. This ship will be one of the largest player-owned ships in the game and is so massive, it will require proper planning and preparation for the trips it will make.
