Citizens! CIG treated us today by answering some common questions about the Hull A! Check back for the other Hulls throughout the week.
The baby hull. The tiniest of the cargo-carrying behemoths.
The MISC Hull A has intrigued many with its low cost and impressive hauling ability for a small ship.
CIG has decided to wade into the fray to clear up some questions about the most affordable MISC Hull.
Here I would like to feature the fantastic lore intro from the post RSI:
“I bought my first [Hull] A used, when I was first starting out… her previous owner had named her SNUGBUG and try as I might to come up with something else, the name stuck. Snugbug and I had some good times. I got my start flying short runs; ground to starside, starside to ground to pick up crates off the bulk freighters over and over to make a name for myself. Spent more on fuel than I ever did flying duration missions! By the time I was worth a journeyman hauler rating, Snugbug was outfitted well enough to fend off the occasional pirate and I started moving whatever I could cross-system to make a ‘cred. Weirdest thing I ever shipped? It was livestock, grown on Terra… these weird cube-shaped chickens. Looked like meaty rectangles. Had to have a special transport module so they could breathe vacuum in-flight. I kid you not. Never saw anything like it, but the Banu ate them up. Literally.”

And my favourite answers:
“Instead of having many small containers in one section, will there be a possibility to attach one large container which fits into the same said section?” – Joevar
Yes! While smaller cargo boxes are pictured throughout the promotional images, the Hull series will be able to carry any type of container that ‘fits’ in the space allotted.
“Can the hull ships carry smaller starfighters (packed or configured as cargo) such as the Super Hornet?” – queetz
Yes! Spacecraft can be broken down into their component parts for transport, or carried in their completed forms aboard larger Hulls. There is also a ‘midget fighter attachment’ being developed for the Hull E which will allow it to drop and recover escort fighters in exchange for cargo space.
