Atmosphere Range: 100-800/2.5/4km
*: This vessel features a standard Verpine stabilization cockpit, this enables it to perform incredibly agile twists and turns for a transport vessel while still retaining a stable firing platform. Should the vessel take heavy damage, and the system fails (a 1-2 on the damage roll) then maueverability drops by 1D, Space Speed drops to 4 and atmosphere speed drops to 225;750kmh.
Description: Although Slayn and Korpil are famous for their starfighter designs such as the B-Wing and Torrent Starfighters, the technology used in these vessels was originally designed for the transport vessels which need to manuever through the Roche Asteroid field where the Verpine dwell. These vessels feature cockpit stabilization systems to allow the pilots to rotate the vessels through small gaps in the field, while avoiding throwing the occupants around in their seats. The Soarer Light Freighter is a longer ranged vessel, which can still manage the agility needed for manuevering around an asteroid field, and although it does not carry as large a load of consumables as some other transports its agility and long range weaponry make it popular with those who look into the handling and capabilities of their vessels rather than just considering numbers. The crew compartment is somewhat cramped, and it is obvious that the vessel was never designed for passengers, since the internal volume of the ship is mainly consumed by its cargo hold, engines and many manuevering thrusters.
