Bronco Medium Freighter by DPRagan Bronco Medium Freighter by DPRagan
HA "Bronco" Medium Freighter
Manufacturer: Houston Aerospace

262.47 feet long (80m)

Not the biggest commercial freighter, bit one of the most durable and the second most common (Slightly eclipsed by the newer HA "Hammerhead"). comes with two medium dual-eletromag cannons.

Uses the microwave argon plasma (MAP) type engines and laser ignited molecular plasma (LIMP) systems for landing and taking off from planets

The universe uses a gravity producing system that was supposed to be a warp drive, but they are still working out the power requirements to compact and otherwise distort space/time. still most ships reactors can at least use a smaller version of the system for gravity.

Sorry, I don't have the engine work detailed that well ^_^;;; mostly trying to stretch my muscles. that and if you are making a ship for a scifi story, well you need one that looks like it can work and still look cool. ;)

Looks a little out of Homeworld.

Really, I thought my main inspiration came from Star Wars (the pic in the description) and maybe Trinity (Ĉonverse)

Where are the the up/down steering engines?

Those are the blisters near the corners, also there are "rudders" in the main engines, for fast stops the output can be channeled through the outer shell of the engine toward the bow.

Thanks :) The freighter can be equipped with more engines (for faster directional control) but this is the stock version of the ship.

molecular plasma?

O2, CO2, N2 atmospheric gasses converted to Plasma by a laser in a bell-chamber. They start our as gas molecules but the end product is not.

The source is environmental but ends up as regular plasma
