As the most-produced ship in the Hull range, the MISC Hull C is widely regarded as the most common and versatile vessel in the galaxy. Designed to occupy the middle ground between smaller, single-person transports and the massive super freighters that dominate the market, the Hull C offers expansive modularity while retaining a degree of maneuverability. With its exceptional configurability, the Hull C is the go-to choice for freighter captains seeking a reliable and adaptable cargo transport solution. Its reputation for defensibility and adaptability has made it the standard for transport jobs across known space.
|Hull A||The smallest, most affordable Hull. The Hull A is great for those just striking out in the galaxy on their own.|
|Hull B||The Hull B is a more rugged option 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 D||The Hull D kicks off the larger end of the spectrum with a massive ship built around a rugged frame.|
|Hull E||The ultimate edition of the Hull series. A ship is one of the largest player owned ships in the game and is so massive, it requires proper planning and preparation for the trips it will make.|

“The MISC Hull C is one of the best-selling freighters in history… but the most famous Hull C isn’t a proper transport at all. Any racing fan knows the dreaded Ship X. Painted in a constantly-changing series of garish colors and capable of seemingly changing it’s [sic] Star-Craft Identification Number on the fly, Ship X seems to travel from race to race around the galaxy, displaying profane and bizarre slogans to the assembled crowds. Holo networks always cut around the ship, but it is a familiar sight to anyone who has ever attended a major race in person. It’s apparent that Ship X carries no cargo, as it escapes at full thrust when its presence is spotted by track officials…”
- Dr. Jave Malloy, Racing Historian
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
The Hull C is a $34M stretch goal ship originally focused on criminal transport.
