This OXP adds the Hognose ship from the Archimedes version of Elite.

Originally designed to add various missionaries to the space lanes, this offspring from the Hognose Missionaries OXP is now featuring scavengers and miners in undeveloped systems.


Initially developed by the Galactic Navy and Griff Industries for target practice, the Hognose was little more than laser fodder. However, since the ship is a real bargain over the time, it was used for other purposes as well. Missionaries, scavengers and miners are nowadays flying the Hognose and the Hognose Tugship by Murgh Shipyards operates in the fleets of various companies.

Quite surprised by the success, Griff Industries recently introduced the Hognose II to the public market. Designed for interplanetary traffic this variant exchanged the hyperdrive for additional cargo space and now offers a cheaper alternative to the Orbital Shuttle.
