Burov class Far Trader

KenFee Interstellar, Burov class

200dton Far Trader

The Burov class free trader is the oldest and one of the most successful designs to come out of the KenFee Interstellar shipyards on Yanbeck. The Burov was designed to be an inexpensive no-frills way to transport beings and goods between star systems. The Burovís jump drive gives it a range of 2 parsecs and its thrusters are cable of accelerating 2,000 tons at 1G. The greatest strength of the Burov is the ease in which KenFee is able to produce ships of different passenger and cargo capacities to meet customers requirements. One of the more well know, if not infamous, variations is the 40 passenger type used by the DC Discount Starline (Detailed above). The Brightly colored ships of DC Discount are a common sight thought out the central Draconis Cluster. The cramp and sparten conditions are quite often made worst by DC allowing multiple beings to occupy rooms clearly designed for only one. Despite these conditions, DC Discountís prices ensure that staterooms are rarely unoccupied. On the other end of the scale, KenFee has produce many Burovs designed primarily a cargo haulers. The most common cargo hauler variant has 112dtons of cargo and 6 small staterooms. Recently orders for Burovs have fallen dramatically in part due to the designís age but mostly due to many recent and well publicized disasters involving Burovs. KenFee contends that several of the disasters involving older ships were the result of improper maintenance. The two most recent disasters both involved DC Discount ships, with DC Discount claiming sabotage in both cases.

This ship was built using Guy "wildstar" Garnett's QSDS version 1.5. To get the TNE style data the ship was roughly redesinged using FF&S and a spreadsheet found at the Vyborg campaign home page.
