Default LBB2 TLA J2 400/800t Merchant Tug Bosun Class

OK not quite sure if this is 'canon', is a LBB2 design J2 merchant. Only way to get it to be profitable/viable was to have it be 400t custom streamlined hull, and then have 2x100t standard streamlined "cargo hulls" (6MCr). Also needs unrefined fuel, has HG purifier though.

REVISED: Original didn't have full costs (grr)

Ship is rated at Jump 2, 400t. Jump performance limited by Computer model, exceeds 0.1MJn+10Pn fuel by 20t. 600t (tugging 200t) does not meet 0.1MJn+10Pn requirement (has J2, 2wks fuel @600t J2 P2 rating). 2t Avionics reserved for computer upgrades. 2t drive waste space reserved to allow use of 400t M2D, 600t M1D, 800t M1D Maneuver Drive, which would allow a tug of 400t @ J1M1P1 requiring 90t fuel. If 2t avionics, 4t reserved/waste allows E Drive for 100t (600t tow) operation! Includes 8t .036MCr HG 200t TLA fuel purification plant, or interpret as frontier-scout-naval-unrefined rated drives.
Alternate Design remove 2t avionics, 2t drive reserve (waste), add 10t fuel (140t) for 0.1Mjn+10Pn @ J2P2 600t, 4 additional staterooms (16) for 5 High 5 Mid psgr, 100t internal cargo. MCr 184.736 MCr 166.2624 (.9 discount). 396895 Cr Expenses 400000 Cr Revenues 3104 Cr Net per jump. (for the LBB2 purists)
Design goal a LBB2 J2 trader able to make standard bank financing, so is a compromise. Uses 400t powered Tug, 2x100t standard streamlined 100t hulls as cargo carriers. Bosun in Italian is Nostromo, though this hasn’t 3 engineers.

OK so this is a LBB2 J2 trader profitable using standard rates, assuming full load. Would work well between pop 6/8 worlds 2 jumps apart, no?

So I guess the question is, is using multiple hulls allowed in LBB2? The hulls towed are just cargo shells (um, demountable cargo pods? could use like cutter 30t open modules but price too high then) They'd need to be in orbit as I don't imagine this launching/deorbiting with stuff attached (Revised, hulls are streamlined so can land?). S07 Traders and Gunboats has the Jump Shuttle for the SB Guardian SDB. This one isn't Nostromo as lacks need for Chief Engineer, but *is* a profitable-on-mortgage LBB2 J2 trader (unrefined fuel granted, but has purifier).

Comments MOST welcome: Enjoy!
