The RAFT (Reinforced Advanced Freight Transport) is a small cargo hauler manufactured by Argo Astronautics. Designed to carry three standardized 32-SCU 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.
- 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 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.
- Equipment Storage: The RAFT features an internal storage of 96,000K μSCU and two 400K μSCU storage lockers in the habitation area, as well as dedicated gun racks and EVA suit lockers.

It featured a giant super robot or mecha formed by combining five RAFTs of different colors. It wields a giant red sword and has a proportionally-sized Pico-ball for a head.
