An overall view of the sleek, but solid Hazardous Cargo Transport. Thick armored walls keep your cargo safe, while state of the art engines and computers keep your shipment on time. The Hazardous Cargo Transport shown is unit #514.
The front two-thirds of the HC is devoted to the cargo holds, while the remaining third is the ship's cabin. Note the armor plating on its deck. The HC has no vulnerable spots.
The view of the HC's side. The ship has its curves, but many square edges were required to increase cargo capacity.
The front of the HC is home to two particle intakes that grab dark matter and convert it into thrust. There is also four manueverable thrusters that help the HC rise, slow down, and roll. This photo and the one above show the two positions.
The side of the HC has various sensors, the HC's unit number (HC 514), and the ships ensignia.
The HC's high powered engines fire dark matter particles collected from forward intakes. The result is speed with little energy consumption. The HC is very fuel efficient. Below the main engines are two more manueverable thrusters. They move up and back just like the front.
Just for fun...here's the bottom. Not much to show here...landing gear and more armor.
A view down the long cargo doors. There are two protected compartments.
Both cargo holds are open here. The HC 514 is transporting hazardous, nuclear minerals. The Hazardous Cargo Transport has a large capicity for its size.
Another view of the dangerous materials inside of the cargo holds.
Here is a shot of the top of the HC's cabin. Note the small hatch for the pilots to enter and exit and the communication array.
The forward view of the cabin. The pilots have only this small gap to see out of, although they rarely look out, as the computer allows them to see.
The pilots monitor the ship's many computers. These state of the art machines are the pride of the LIU's fleet. They control everything with perfection. The pilots are there for emergencies only.
The forward controls. Although it looks complicated, these systems are controlled by the ship's AI. It sets speed, direction, route, and the radio station. Unfortunately for the pilots, the AI enjoys rap.
The rear controls. Note the two identical computers that simulate routes. The computer picks several variations and then narrows it down to the best. Your cargo will arrive safely and quickly.
The two pilots pose next to the ship's number. "Unit #514 is the best," says the cheerful one. His scar-faced partner just cringes.
The grumpy crew member examines the radioactive cargo* before they set off. His partner watches on, continuing his annoying chant, "514, 514, 514, 514, ..."
*Note: It is not smart to inspect your radioactive cargo from this distance.
