Thanks for showing this off GL, I got as far as renting it but I'll miss out on flying it due to work.
I kinda like it, kinda not as impressed. I Like the ARGO Cargo, because it has nicely shaped covered up bits. This one is too much girder/insides showing, not enough bodywork. Still, pretty good design, fits nicely to it's role and the interior is top notch!

Watched the video with Gunnar. Instabuy. It was cheap and came with black and yellow paint job for a few extra bones. Now, how do we use this to make money in 3.15 exactly? Gunnar and I are ready to start using it everyday if at all possible for Space Trucking.

Are we gonna need testie escorts?

Please advise on how to use this in 3.15 to make some money.

Star Citizen has quite enough Cargo Ships already as I feel. This might fill a niche as its a lot of cargo for a comparitively low price and might be quicker to load/unload than ships with comparable cargo space in the future but also doesn't have no versatility. It's just cargo. But that job it does well. As an owner of a Starrunner I don't feel I need it, however it's only really a comparision because the other gameplay loops for the SR are not there jet. Nevertheless it had to be done because Argo just wouldn't feel complete without a cargo ship.

SC Trade Tools is a great resource for those interested in cargo hauling; though it doesn't look like they've added the RAFT yet, so it may take some fiddling to get it to display the information correctly.
Also, never buy more cargo than you're willing to lose, bugs still happen and there are other players that'll try to either force you to pay them to leave you alone or blow you up for kicks.
However, profit margins are still pretty terrible, so hiring crew is currently impractical (outside of people doing it for fun from TEST) as mission payouts are far greater than what you'd be able to afford out of your measly profit margins...especially with only 96 SCU.

"... giving CIG ideas"

Dear Leader doesn't want to say "Corporate Efficiency" right out loud ...

Great video, the living section's layout really appeals to me. I think they nailed it.
