The only TL which needs cargobay upgrades to reach maximum capacity, the Ryu is otherwise a solid choice for a station transporter or light carrier, with good speed, low-to-average cargo space, decent shields and a bigish hangar.


As the Yaki seek to expand their sphere of influence, so must their infrastructure increase. The Ryu is a key part of enabling Yaki station-building and heavy transport activities.

Physical Characteristics[edit]


The Ryu has a respectable choice of weaponry, but is not a combat vessel and this armament should be used defensively unless the pilot knows what he is doing.




Suggested Roles[edit]

Similar to the Split Elephant. Comparable speed and 80% the shielding, while having a fighter bay of 2 less but a cargo bay of 2000 more mean it could be and effective on-demand resupply/light support craft (though the markedly weaker laser generator limits the latter role when IS).
