The MPUV-1C (Multi-Purpose Utility Vehicles 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.

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 1C's are also used in the military service on capital ships such as the Javelin or the Idris and are used mainly for ship to ship transfers.

Brochure description

When you buy a utility vehicle, you don't want conditions. You don't want qualifying statements. You want results. The Argo MPUV is designed to deliver in what ever environment or condition you throw at it.

Trivia

In 2021, the MPUV 1C successively won the 2951 Ship Showdown competition. It managed to get into the last 16 knockout stage of the competition, thanks to a strong push by backers during the submission stage.[6]. Despite the ship being inferior in many respects to the other ships it faced in each round, the MPUV-1C reached the grand final, again thanks to another strong push by backers. In the final it faced the popular Mercury Star Runner and defeated it 18211 votes to 18037. The winner will influences 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 get a free limited-edition ship livery and leather jacket for their character.
