About this creation
(^above the ZED CORP flag as seen hanging from the Norwegian Cross^)
The trade fleet main purpose is to Trade(DUH),explore and exploit any one or where they come across.
The Trade Fleets flag ship is the Norwegian Cross.
mainly the Trade Fleet is made of light haulers,heavy haulers and container hauler.
the Trade Fleet is the only fleet that is entirely self contained,it only needs funding and permission from HQ and off it goes to trade,explore and exploit.when it returns every 6 months or so its always full of goods and credits.
I say self-contained because it provides its own protection,own fuel and own orders,ranks and routes.
