Description: A Mining Explorer was a large utility craft used for research and exploration.
The ships were clad with a green-colored hull and had an array of three engines at the stern. Hangars were located towards the mid-section of the vessel. A Mining Explorer was about 500 meters long, if we consider the shadow the vessel projects over a Tagge Battle Cruiser. The ships were capable of operating in most of the planetary atmospheres.
The ships were used by the Tagge Mining Company, a subsidiary of Tagge Company. They were originally designed when other megacorporations refused to provide ships to Tagge Company in an effort to stifle their business. They served as bulk freighters/survey ships/colony transports. However its main use in the outer rim was the search of spice, hence its nickname "Spice Sniffer", deploying probes from the great ventral bay.
Baron Orman Tagge and his sister Domina often used a Mining Explorer as their flagships.

Good reasonable stats. Well done. It doesn't wildly outgun a Corellian Corvette and is slower, but can use its much greater size for transport of mining yields or passenger operations, and of course economic activities like that would be the main purpose of the Tagge Co. folks engineering their own ships.
