Default 6H Sixth Horizon Variant

From a hidden showroom just outside Imperium space, Net-7 News has a rare opportunity to unveil a Variant of the Far Scout.

Sixth Horizon

It goes without saying that Vargr have a need for speed and the 6H variant of the 200 ton Far Scout is no exception. An Imperial Vargr spin on an established design and with a reaching, Fast Cycle, Jump-4 range added to a punishing 6Gs of Thrust; one needs to be seated in the acceleration chairs to truly appreciate the capabilities of this Far Scout variant.

With Piloting and Ship Systems Integration cybernetics, a Pilot/Astrogator need only think of vectors and sit back to enjoy the performance of the 6H. Leave incoming missiles along with your cares in your M-Drive exhaust trail. The 6H is a must for Travellers who need to get to their destination as fast as civilian conveyances can muster. Whether you want to watch the stars go by or nap through a quick jaunt, the 6H is an excellent choice for the expedient passenger.

Planet Surface to Orbit in 816 seconds
To 100 diameters in 2.9 hours
