No spaceport should be without the powerful and versatile Hercules.
About this creation
Need to move freight around the spaceport? Need to maneuver a large freighter into a tight spot? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then the Ludgonian Industrial Union has a product for you! We are proud to present the Hercules. Although small, it packs tons of power. Its innovative design allows it to complete the job of a loader and a tug, saving you time, manpower, and money.
Here the Hercules is shown with its bumpers tucked under the ship. This makes the Hercules more compact. A few feet of saved space can translate into big bucks, especially on a busy spaceport.
The two magnetic bumpers, now shown deployed, can attach to a ship's hull or a container of cargo. The bumpers' large size help spread the the Hercule's power over a greater area, reducing the chance of damage to hull or cargo.
The Hercules' rear thruster is a marvel of engineering. It has the power of a tug and the speed of a loader. This thruster insures that any ship or cargo, no matter the size, can be moved and moved quickly. Also note the tow rings flanking the thruster. Awkward cargo can be chained to these rings for further stability.
The reverse thrusters, located on both sides of the cabin, allow for minor adjustments and give the Hercules the agilty it requires at a bustling port.
The Hercules sports some of the newest technology, like the two silver warning horns. There is no sound in space, and developers were forced to equip these horns with shortwave transmitters that sound a warning inside the cabin of the offending vehicle. There are also warning lights and a communication array.
The Hercules' cabin gives the pilot a 360 degree view. It also has easy to use controls (perfect for cheap labor).
Note: The eight previous Hercules models have been recalled for minor problems, such as: faulty wiring, engine failures, unproperly sealed cabins, and tendencies to spontaneously combust. The LIU is confident all problems have been fixed this time, and no warranties will be offered.
