Intent: To create a mass-produced Freighter for the Levantine Sanctum
Development Thread: If Necessary
Manufacturer: Silk Holdings
Model: Laekia-Class Freighter
Affiliation: Majority are held by members of the Levantine Sanctum, though they are available to anyone who wants one.
Modularity: Like most freighters the Laekia is pretty modular, with most systems able to be upgraded and personalized at a cost. Personalized vessels with heavier modification would require a submission as a unique vessel.
Production: Mass Produced
Material: Durasteel
Description: The Laekia-Class Freighter was a simple freighter, built to safely transport a number of goods from one world to another in the Levantine Sanctum. It isn't the fastest, most well armed, or most cargo carrying freighter out on the market, but it does handle a good bit of cargo, is decently armed, and is cheap enough that the citizens under the protection of the Levantine Sanctum, only recently exposed to the Galaxy after the Gulag Plague, can usually afford it. With no major political enemies the only real thread in most of their travels are pirates, which can usually be deterred through laser cannons. Boarding operations and dealing with hostiles on the ground is taken care of by a repeating blaster turret, and larger raiding vehicles can be temporarily immobilized through use of Conner Nets allowing a quick escape to hyperspace. Overall it's a solid, reliable machine that's not the best, but has room for upgrading for those that can afford it, and is great for new traders starting out, reflecting Laekia's newfound place in the galaxy.
