NEW! BFF-1 Bulk Freighter Raffle (#9814)

The heavy hauler of the galaxy.
Raffling away this Bulk: It'll certainly be your BFF, with both meanings.
The BFF-1 Bulk Freighter is all and nothing more than what its name states with a design that amounts to a decent hyperdrive engine surrounded by lots of cargo containers.
One advantage of this type of transport is that despite its significant size, the BFF-1 has the ability to land. However, it flies rather sluggishly while travelling at sublight speeds, requiring a pilot with a steady, yet gentle hand. Besides cargo of all sorts, the manufacturers managed to make later versions acceptable for passenger transport, making room for about a hundred people. One other important attribute is the BFF-1's tractor beam. This is very handy if there's even more to haul, but it also helps multiple ships to stay in formation which is very important because these ships tend to travel in convoy.
