Default Budget ships

So, how cheaply can we get into space?

With Generic A-drives in a cheap 100 Dt hull we get something like this:

120 Dt, J-1, M-1, 70 Dt cargo, MCr 19 (perhaps MCr 17 as a standard design).
Unstreamlined hull with wings & fins to make it landable even with a bit of overtonnage.
A token stateroom that can bunk up to four people.
A single Dt set aside for upgrades, such as a turret.
Code:

Note the very basic default commo & sensors to keep costs down.
