The Medical Anaconda is a Anaconda-class (Smivs variant) heavy bulk transport converted for use as a hospital ship.

These vessels are operated by the GalCop Medical Corps as mobile medical treatment facilities to provide medical relief in planetary-wide natural disasters or war zones. The cargo bays have been refitted as surgical operating rooms, hospital ward facilities, and a medical laboratory. All Medical Anacondas are fitted with planetary landing capability.

Since GalCop interstellar conventions prohibiting hospital ships from carrying heavy weaponry, the missile launchers have been removed and a single forward pulse laser acts as a defense against asteroids and space debris. Therefore Medical Anacondas are completely dependent upon escorts of up to six Moray Medical Boats for protection.


This OXP adds NPC "Medical Anaconda" Hospital Ships and their Moray Medical escorts to the game (requires Oolite v1.76 or later). Random Ship Names OXP (if installed) will generate "medical"-related names for these vessels.

The package could be found in the expansion manager and alternatively here: Medical Anaconda v1.0 If you downloaded from the alternative link the OXZ should be moved to the Oolite .../ManagedAddOns folder. If you are not sure where to find this folder please check at OXP or consult the wiki or BB.
