Solo-class Combat Freighter

originally designed by the Metalsmith's Guild of Vandelhelm, on the orders of the Venerated One known as Lilli, the Solo-class combat freighter was named in honor fo Han Solo. Developed during the early years of the New Republic, the Solo-class freighter was manufactured jointly by the Republic Engineering Corporation and SoroSuub, with facilities provided by the Fondor Independent Shipyards, and was based on the prototypes produced on Vandelhelm. It was first marketed as "a revolution in armored transports." The idea behind the Solo-class combat freighter was to create a cargo ship that could more than handle its own against enemy ships, whether pirates or Imperials. The hull was double-plated with titanium alloys that could withstand a great deal of fire, and was formed around a lightweight plasteel superstructure. It was armed with six ball-mounted dual turbolaser cannons, three on each side, giving the ship complete coverage and eliminating any vulnerable spots. A pair of concussion missile launchers provided additional armament. The Solo-class combat freighter measured 96.5 meters in length, required a crew of six to operate, and could accommodate up to ten passengers and 22,000 metric tons of cargo. If the holds were empty, the ship could transport up to 100 troops. Despite its ability to move through space without an escort, many critics felt that the Solo-class combat freighter was overarmed and a waste of credits, as they carried a hefty price tag.
