 :COMMENTS
Using a 200-ton cluster hull, the Vargr Type J is a wide-ranging prospecting and mining vessel. It mounts jump drive-A, maneuver drive-A, and power plant-A, providing a performance of jump-1 and 1G acceleration. Fuel tankage for 24 tons supports one jump-1 and two months' operations. On to the bridge is a Model/1 computer. There are four staterooms and one emergency low berth. The ship has two hardpoints, with two deployable single turrets: each mounts one mining laser. The weaponry is primarily used for mining operations. There is one ship's vehicle: a ship's boat, grappled to the hull. Cargo capacity (primarily for ore) is 65 tons. It has fuel bins for refuelling from asteroid ice.

The Vargr seeker requires a crew of four: pilot, navigator, engineer, and medic. Additional crew members may be added as workers. The pilot operates the ship's boat. The ship does not normally carry passengers.
