"These unarmed and often unmanned craft are built under license in every planetary system. Based on a prototype developed by Saud-Kruger AstroDesign, they are used for cargo ferrying between planet and space station, but can be modified to hospital ships, or orbiting prisons. Favorite targets for small-time criminals, because of their instantaneous release of cargo canisters, they are often followed by single fighter patrol ships."


Since the Orbital Shuttle is easy to modify there are countless variants out there. However, some crafts like the System Shuttle, Medical Shuttle or the Drop Shuttle are widely known in public.


While in the Elite Manual the dimensions are 20 × 20 × 35 ft. the current core-ship model got 23 x 20 x 39 m.
