A2Lm "stretched" Far Trader (Multi) - 300dT
 
My version of the stretched Far Trader as presented on Freelance Traveller.

This version is a multi-use version, able to carry a good load of cargo and six high passage passengers.

The modern day equivalent for this version of Far Trader are ocean going freighters that offer limited passenger accommodation for passengers whose destination coincides with the ships scheduled route.

Comments welcome

Isn't this the same ship as in your previous thread of the same name?

{edit: Oh, I see... multi-use variant vs the earlier cargo variant.}

I use freighter for primarily cargo ships, liner for primarily passenger ships, and merchant for the equally cargo and passenger ships (Could use a better term for the last one, but can't think of one).

When you begin needing four letters to distinguish the type, maybe it's time to consider it an entirely new type.

The following isn't canon, it's just my take on just what is meant by a ship type. I think it works fairly well with canon, although I won't rule out the possibility that somewhere there's a bit of text that contradicts it.

A ship type is a set of major specifications: Hull size, streamlining (but not shape), drives and power plants, etc. Two different ship classes that both meet those specs both belong to that type.

I think a 300T ship type would rate a new letter combination even if one of the ship classes belonging to it is inspired by one of the ship classes belonging to type A.

YMMV.

I did think of a new classification number but decided on the standard classification that LBB2 used. These are stretched designs of the standard A2 Far Trader and as per stretched variations of modern airliners keep the standard designation with subtype to describe the variation.

So, type A2Lm Type A2 stretched Far Trader (multi). Perhaps merchanter might be a more appropriate description?

Another very nice ship, thanks!

Merchantman is the term equivalent to Liner and Freighter in normal use.

Noticed that there is no elevator on the top deck.

Thanks :)

In regards to the elevator, passengers enter and exit the passenger area via the elevator in the crew area, similar to the A2 200dT design.

Sorry, I took a quick glance and was looking for it in a different area.

The dreaded V-Day is upon us, and the wife wasn't happy she didn't get a second card and candy.
