"With an extensive selection of options, four tons of cargo capacity, and easy upgrade abilities, the Sunracer is the choice of scouts, couriers, families, joyriders, and anyone looking for a small ship and a price to match."

Sunracer is a sturdy, agile & fast craft designed for scouting operations, but it has been successfully adapted to act as small scale trader, taxi, escort and (unavoidably) also as pirate.

Sunracers come in several flavours, stats shown in the infobox are for the standard version.

Known variants

Standard (light grey with green stripes) appear on and off the space lanes in several different roles
- Escort in trader convoy
- Trader carrying various goods or well-paying single passengers that need fast transport
- When flown skillfully, an "Iron Assed" Sunracer can be a successful pirate Hunter
- Occasionally also a lucky Pirate can get a hold of an intact Sunracer

Quite often "pirated" Sunracers become run-down after a prolonged abuse and neglected or poorly conducted maintenance, and thus will have inferior stats compared to new standard ones. These 'not quite in mint condition' Sunracers can be found in many less lawful shipyards.

Navy/Police (Dark grey with Navy stars & blue stripes) have found various uses in GalCop arsenal
- Scouting operations for the Navy and Police
- As a Wingman escorting larger Naval and Police vessels
- Main Station defenders

The Navy/Police version is faster and tougher than standard Sunracer, and can have Military Shields in addition to the equipment available for standard version.
It is rumoured that pirates have acquired/captured a few relatively intact Navy scouts, and that it is possible to find one being sold in some less lawful shipyards.
