Overview

Staer9 Industries presents the Firefly Class Transport. 9 years after the prototype was introduced to the public finally this ship is available on the open market. Classified as a multi-purpose, medium-sized transporter this vessel has enough cargo space to trade and sufficient firepower to counter most threats on the space lanes.

In most respects better than the famous Cobra Mark III and with only 30,000 Cr to add to the base price it remains to be seen what the reaction of the potential clients will be.

Currently, 2 different hull paints could be spotted, the darker one (Staer9 original) is usually better armed and the commanders of this ships consider GalCop law more as a guideline.

Remarks

This homage to the Firefly Class ship "Serenity" from the firefly TV series underwent some modifications for better adaption to the Oolite universe:

  • larger hull (88 x 40 x 146), original 52 x 24 x 82
  • less cargo space (55 t standard + 15 t extension), original 85 t
  • 4 laser mounts (3x fore, 1x rear), original none
  • 2 pylons, original none

The original test version from Staer9 (2012) could be found here: Firefly Class Transport Prototype V 0.50. I only added a manifest.plist and converted the OXP to a OXZ.
