Overview

The Sonoran, the first ship from Robin Foam Metalworks offered on the open market, is mainly designed for the more adventures commanders. While there is enough cargo space for some traders, most of the owners are bounty hunters, hit-men and assassins. Unfortunately some also had found their way in the hand of pirates. With mostly better specifications than the famous Asp Mark II this is an excellent combat craft.

Remarks

some notes from the author:

I'm a big fan of Smivs' Contractor (please think of any similarities as 'homages' rather than 'plagiarisms') but wanted more of a hunter/trader hybrid to look forward to for when my current pilot finally escapes his broke-start adder.

Balancing:
I wanted the Sonoran to be a good hunter/trader but also to fit well with the core ships, and so I limited all the stats to be no higher individually than could be found on core ships (e.g. the Asp's top speed of 0.4 LM), and I then tinkered until a realistic_shipyards formula I saw on the Caduceus page produced the same 150,000₢ as a Cobra Mk3:
