Type 9 Heavy blueprint

This is the bluprint for the Lakon Spaceways Type-9 Heavy. The only ship with a manoeuvrability rating of zero, the super-size freighter and foremost mining ship, the Type-9 is the cow of space.

First introduced in version 0.1 Alpha 4.

Type 7 Transporter blueprint

This is the blueprint for the Lakon Spaceways Type-7 Transporter. The Volvo of the skies, this ship is "boxy but good" and the ideal trader stepping stone before moving on to a Python or Imperial Clipper.

First introduced in version 0.1 Gamma 2.

Asp Explorer blueprint

This is the blueprint for the Lakon Spaceways Asp Explorer. The most popular long-range exploration ship, the Asp has brought many commander back safely from the far side of the galaxy. Better equipped than it's smaller Diamondback cousin, the Asp is far bigger; more cargo, more jump range and more utility slots. The only ship with better jump range (currently) is a stripped-down Anaconda. Something requiring a much larger budget!

First introduced in version 0.1 Beta 2.

Asp Scout blueprint

This is the blueprint for the Lakon Spaceways Asp Scout. The cheaper and faster version of the Asp, the scout harks back to the military combat origins of the Asp rather than the exploration role of it's better known sister-ship.

First introduced in version 1.5 for the Ships expansion.

Type 6 Transporter blueprint

This is the blueprint for the Lakon Spaceways Type-6 Transporter. The Type-6 is the perfect freighter, with capacity for over 100T of cargo when the ship is shielded. Sadly, if you want to win a fight you can't run from, you'll need the more expensive and better armed Keelback.

First introduced in version 0.1 Beta 1.
