Weak, and with generally sub-standard common stats, the Caravel is a second-rate TM.


With its ability to quickly deploy and recover fighters, the advent of the Caravel has added to the aggression and organization of pirate raiding activity.

Physical Characteristics[edit]

The Caravel is a cross between a Teladi Pelican and Argon Magnetar, with the Pelican's outriggers mounted to the Magnetar's helmet-shaped bow.


Although the Caravel has a wide choice of weapons to choose from, its poor defenses, mediocre speed and low shield recharge rate make it very vulnerable in combat.




The Pirate Caravel is not sold and must be boarded to be added to the player's collection.

Suggested Roles[edit]

The Caravel is more of a showpiece than anything else; there's no task for which another TM fails to be both superior and easier to acquire.
