A freighter derived from the HT-4000 Heavy Military Vehicle Transport produced by the now defunct Saleum Jumpworks, capable of carrying 4000 metric tonnes of military hardware and a platoon of soldiers to operate and support those vehicles. Saleum's headquarters and factories were raided by Separatist soldiers after it was found that they were directly supplying the Kelas Belt Pirates with military starships during the Outlying Worlds War. Many years after the war, the seized assets of the company were auctioned off by the Empire.

A young entrepreneur, Jason Ansar, acquired production rights to several starships and one of the former Saleum Jumpworks factories during the auction. Ansar quickly set to redesign the ship for a new market as the factories were restored and retooled. The goal was to design a freighter capable of carrying heavy mining equipment, carrying a crew to operate both the ship and mining equipment and still have room to take ore back to the refinery at the end of the day. After stripping the armor and military grade hardware from the ship and fitting it with a modern powerplant and engines, it was found the ship could carry far more than originally anticipated.

Do you mind if I have a go at making a deckplan for this? Its quite a nice shape.

I already have a deckplan made, kind of... Rather, I have a very low detail interior modeled out with hallways leading from the cargo bay to engineering and the bridge and crew cabins. I plan all my mid-sized ships around their interior space rather than making a ship then figuring out what the interior will look like afterwards. I do appreciate the offer, though.
