    The Lakon Type-9 Heavy is a large bulk freighter, it's large hold is able to make enormous profit from any trade route and will pay for itself fairly quickly, however it has little use outside trading.

    -----

    The Type-9, while slow and suffers in manoeuvrability, it is a dependable product from Lakon Spaceways, it has moderate active defences but has got heavy armour and strong shields. Like with all large ships, it will push any smaller ship aside with little to no effort at all making the ship dangerous while docking.

    -----

    This vessel costs roughly 77 million CR to buy outright and is generally uncommon to find it for sale outside the most wealthy starports. This ship is defended by three medium and two small weapon hardpoints along with four utility mounts, it comes with one size eight, size seven, size six, size five internal bays, topped off with two size four, two size three and a single size two bay, it's max cargo capacity is 532 tons.
    The Type-9 is the typical bulk freighter, it is both slow and has little chance of keeping up with smaller ships that can out turn it, however with good aim the ship is able to tak down small ships carelessly passing in front of it's guns with ease and shrug off their attacks without stopping, while the ship is able to dock with no much effort, a docking computer might prove useful to make sure one doesn't damage this expensive ship.

      The Faulcon deLacy Viper mk III is a development of a successful line of Fighter craft, it's lineage is noteable for being used in law enforcement forces throughout colonized space.

      -----

      The Viper mk 3, based of the original Viper Defence Craft made by Faulcon Manspace in 2762, the basic design is a more heavily armoured mark 2 along with general upgrades and a new look, it is a dedicated fighter that packs a heavy punch for it's size as well as being one of the fastest ships aviliable.

      -----

      A new Viper costs about 143,000 CR depending on distibutor and is generally common in many Shipyards. As a medium fighter it comes with two medium and two small weapon hardpoints along with two utility mounts, it comes with two size three, one size two and one size one internal compartments with one of the size three being the ship's shield generator.

      For it's size the ship can pack a good punch and can take down ships larger than it with good piloting, however it lacks in both bulk transport and has a lower than average jump range, it should also be noted that as stock the ship suffers from overheating. However it is a highly effective combat ship, it is ideal for bounty hunters, small-load couriers, mercenaries or smugglers while not costing as much as a Cobra mk 3.

        The Core Dynamics Vulture is a heavily armed space superiority fighter, it's internal space is given up for more powerful thrusters and weapon systems to make it a dangerous killing machine.

        -----

        The Vulture was designed for the heavy fighter role, it is small and very nimble for the weapons it's able to mount making it a dangerous foe to ships of any weight class, however as all dedicated fighters, the Vulture is not a multi-role craft, therefore has limited internal compartment options.

        -----

        This agressive ship is on the market for around 5 million CR and would be more common to find in higher tech systems but elsewhere is not unheard of. This ship is simply armed with two large weapon hardpoints along with four utility mounts, it's internal layout is one size five, one size four, one size two and two size one bays, the single size five bay is the shield generator.

        In most encounters, the Vulture can dominate a one on one fight with most ships due to it's high maneuveablity, small profit and heavy hitting weapons, however this is not without flaws as with all combat ships, it suffers from power supply and heat issues, while the ship does also sport good armour, one shouldn't become over confident with the ship's capabilities and put themselves within a group of hostiles where the Vulture can't move.
