The Anvil Carrack is a multi-crew explorer that specializes in exploration and pathfinding. It is built as a single, self-sustaining ship that can make long-duration voyages through the roughest areas of space. It’s designed specifically for transiting jump points, dealing with extreme conditions in space and getting back home.[1] Since its time in the military, it has been the vanguard of every UEE exploration effort in recent years. Combined with the high-tensile hull armor, the Carrack is one of the safest exploration ships in the galaxy.[2] The Carrack is now declassified and it is available for civilian use.[3]

Features

Self-sufficient exploration

On-board accommodations allow for truly self-sufficient flight, including crew medical and repair facilities, and a mapping-oriented sensor suite capable of always charting a route on the go.[3]

Extended range

The ship features reinforced fuel tanks for long-duration flight, a highly advanced Tarsus Tunneler jump drive array and a dedicated computer core room that allows it to put the maximum processing power into jump charting operations. [3][2]

Scout crafts

The Carrack houses a Pisces-class scout ship that is able to launch from the ship hangar, an Anvil rover, and unmanned explorer drone pods.[2]

Canopy protection

The Carrack features a beautiful single-pane multi-story cockpit window that offers an unprecedented view alongside a titanium-reinforced blast cover capable of sealing off the ship quickly when danger strikes. When in blast mode, the Carrack relies on its extensive onboard sensors for flight.[2]

Bridge

The Carrack’s bridge features control surfaces for extensive scanning, mapping, charting sensor suites, and multiple crew stations.[2]

History

Originally deployed as a UEE military mapping ship, the Carrack has been active for every exploration effort in the 29th Century. It is now declassified and it is available for civilian use.

Development

The Carrack is a promised feature of the $33 million. crowdfunding goal.[4] The concept of the ship was designed by Gurmukh Bhasin (Concept Artist).[5] It is also the first Anvil large ship that went into development. The ship was first revealed in 2014-11-28 in the RSInotext.svg Anvil Carrack Concept Sale. In 2017-10-06, the Carrack went in production on white box phrase,[6] but stopped afterwards due to development priorities. In 2018-11-23, the Carrack resumed into production with a 5-person team from Foundry 42 UK. The ship was scaled back to roughly the original size of the concept.[7]
