detachable delivery barque.

mass-produced fly-by-neuron freighters. This was a mid-sized
freighter that could be flown by a single pilot. While the early

freighter, in part because it was easily retrofittable and
modifiable. Officially, only one model was ever built but it was
built over a long period of time and included many variations.
