Advantages and disadvantages
+ No superpower rank required to purchase a ship.
+ Huge fuel tank, providing the longest range without refueling (more than 250Sv).
+ Second largest economy class passenger capacity after the Anaconda.
+ High manoeuvrability of the liner, far exceeding that of many other L-class ships.
+ High cruising speed (but no afterburner) among L-class ships in roughly equal equipment, including the "Big Three" ships (Federal Corvette, Anaconda,Imperial Cutter).
+ Huge bridge lantern, giving a good view to the pilot.
+ Hull design, combined with the ship's high maneuverability, allows you to use the tail to ram the enemy, the so-called "tail slamming".
- Short jump range compared to Anaconda and Imperial Cutter.
- Only supports class 6 shield generators.
- Low shield effectiveness, even a prismatic shield with shield boosters and Guardian boosters won't give a liner reliable protection (<2000 MJ) if you get into combat.
- Low hull strength, including when engineers refine protective alloys (<1500 fps).
- Low firepower, designed more to make it easier to escape the battlefield than fire.
- Huge tail wings and long hull - for an inexperienced pilot these can be lethal in an airlock dock, even with a docking kit.
- Behind the cockpit is the ship's 200-metre tail, which at first requires careful piloting in the airlock. The pilot has to listen for the airlock wall proximity signal to the ship's side, and only change course when the signal disappears.
- Small selection of equipment when passenger compartments are occupied.
- High cost for a ship with equipment, an approximate tourist liner with basic upgrades would cost around 190 million credits.
- Large hull, requiring the installation of two point defence modules, in the upper and lower hemisphere of the ship, for effective defence.
