History

The Houndstooth Freighter is a single hulled freight carrier design created by FIC to replace the venerable Athens Transport for ‘short haul’ runs. It is a landmark design because it moves all the crew maintained areas to the front with a pair of drive pods extending off the living quarters section with the bridge up top. This allows the entire rear section to be cargo and the ship to be loaded from a giant cargo door in the back much like a classic tractor-trailer road machines of Earth. It also happens to lower the needed crew capacity to half of what an Athens needs. Performance wise there is almost no difference between the two vehicles, though the Houndstooth is slightly bigger.
