 :COMMENTS
Using an airframed 300-ton hull, the Iishillek-class Packet specializes in unscheduled passenger service for those in a hurry. It is equipped with the Madoc Mark 3 jump drive, the ISMM Model D.34 maneuver drive, and the Deltic Mk3323-D power plant, giving performance of Jump-3 and 3G acceleration. Adjacent to the bridge is a computer Model/3. The ship is armed with two triple missile launcher turrets and one triple beam laser turret. It has one ship's vehicle: an air/raft. The ship can gather and purify fuel from gas giants, seas, and ice.

The ship requires a crew of 5: Pilot, Astrogator, two Engineers, and a Medic. Up to three gunners and two additional troops can bunk in the gunners' barracks. It can carry up to 12 middle or high passengers and 5 low. Cargo capacity is 4 tons.

The crew can be trusted, but these little ships still find themselves jumping in harm’s way.
