[BPC] Principal-class Armed Freighter (VANILLA)

Description
This ship is an armed Freighter of roughly 150m length. Sluggish but sturdy it is used by corporate security forces to haul sizable freight of value and/or to escort freight convoys across unsafe territory. As such, it carries a number of defensive gatling turrets but no offensive weaponry. The crew quarters offer cryo tubes for up to 15 crew.

Build Details
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Length: 150m
Blocks: 6486
PCU: 32,976
Grid Mass: 4,171,866 kg
Jump Range: 1,198.50 km

Survival-ready
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The ship is fully connected and capable of atmospheric flight, even on high gravity worlds. It generally uses a combination of hydrogen, ion and atmospheric thrusters, and features a set of landing gears on pistons, which would (theoretically) allow it to level out on uneven terrain. I've also made it as lightweight as possible to limit the fuel consumption during Thruster burn upon leaving planets.

Origin & development
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This build is a 1:1 scale recreation of the original model I've created years ago for X-Wing Alliance, with a few minor alterations. As such I have addedd a blastdoor and boarding ramp to the hangar bay so it can not only hold a small fighter but also some kind of land vehicle. I slightly reduced the number of weapons for connectivity and balance purposes. Also, the freight space, while considerable, is not as massive as it 'could' be since the engineering section does require a bit of space. The ship was originally named 'Liberator-class Corvette'. However I've decided to change the name as it no longer reflects the ship's background and purpose.

I like it. A nice level of detail with out being overbearing.
