The Pelamis Amphibious Cargo Craft is equally at home in space or below the waves, carrying crates to Coriolis stations, or sight-seers to some sub-aqua sensation. The Pelamis is an extrapolation of the design principles behind the phenomenon that is the Moray Star Boat.
The design's robust with a large hold and forward and aft weapon mounts. The Moray's launch tubes have been added to, giving the Pelamis unprecedented firepower with five internal missile or torpedo mounts.
Though not as nimble as some, the Pelamis shows a good turn of speed, and the classic yellow and black markings serve to warn any pirates that this can be one of the more venomous opponents to take on.
The OXP was written by Aegidian (a.k.a Giles Williams, the author of the Oolite game engine).
