The RAFT (Reinforced Advanced Freight Transport[1]) is a small cargo hauler manufactured by Argo Astronautics. Designed to carry three standardized 32 SCU cargo containers, the RAFT allows for rapid loading and unloading and comes equipped with a tough hull, tougher shields, and a comprehensive countermeasures suite to keep your cargo safe.[2]

Presentation description

"No more hand-loading crates - with the RAFT you’ll be loaded up and ready to go or unloaded and onto the next job before you know it."

Features

  • External cargo: 3 external standardized removable cargo containers facilitate rapid cargo transfer, with each container holding 32 SCU.
  • Control Cab: The crew can monitor cargo transfer and operate the rear-mounted tractor beam from this station.
  • Docking port: Ship-to-ship or ship-to-station access is performed via a secure front docking port and airlock.
  • Weaponry: Main armament consists of a remotely operated turret equipped with a pair of Size 3 laser repeaters. Optionally, a pair of forward-facing hardpoints may also be equipped with Size 1 weapons.
  • Habitation: The two-person crew is provided with generous facilities including a kitchen, dining table, bathroom, and bunk beds that double as escape pods.[2]
  • Equipment Storage: The RAFT features an internal storage of 96,000K μSCU, two 400K μSCU storage lockers in the habitation area, as well as dedicated gun racks and EVA suit lockers
