 :COMMENTS
Using the 1000-ton hull, the Susa is a freight transport vessel typical of the cargo carrier ships operated by Oberlindes lines. It is equipped with the Systems Inc. L-392Q jump drive, the Slipstream Ek.91 maneuver drive, and the Qf-3 Cold Sun power plant, giving a performance of Jump-3 and 1G acceleration. Fuel tankage supports 2 weeks of operations and one jump-3. Adjacent to the bridge is a computer Model/3.

There are 17 staterooms, 10 low berths, and gunner barracks. Its three triple turret lasers are deployable to serve as emergency lifepods; the remaining seven hardpoints are unused. There is one ship's vehicle: an air/raft. Cargo capacity is 417 tons. The hull is streamlined, and has fins to improve its performance in atmosphere.

The cargo carrier requires a crew of 10: captain/pilot, astrogator, 4 engineers, medic, and 3 gunners. The astrogator typically operates the air/raft. The ship can carry 12 passengers and 10 low passengers.

The cargo carrier is a standard design commissioned by Oberlindes, and is reflective of its total fleet. Oberlindes ships show no consistent system of naming.
