If you really want to haul cargo, I think when you see what you get with the Hull C, you'll forget the Cat.

Did you know there was a statement about a year ago that these large, external cargo carrying ships can carry missile pods in place of cargo pods? I'm sure to work it would need to be in a position that on the outside of any particular rack, but the idea of the thing makes external carry MIGHTY. And the Hulls C was already an extremely cleverly designed bird with lots of benefits.

No, the Hull series probably cannot take a hit, but if it is locking on pirates at 20 km and acting in extreme prejudice, does that really matter?
Oh Yeah Hull is all about min / maxing cargo transport. While i like the idea of a Q-Ship, i'm not sure if CIG ever will implement that, for balancing reasons. Anyway gonna keep that Hull C.
Caterpillar should offer some versatility with its modules, has a tractor beam, an iconic look (to me) and a good "medium sized" cargo bay. Salvage and a med bay are very likely to come.
Nut sure about its current ability to land on planets, but thats something a Hull C can't do (Hull B should).

I don't think the Hull C can land on a planet when fully laden, nor load cargo while on the ground, because the cargo itself gets in the way of the landing. But the Hull C is depicted in its original art as sitting on a surface, so at least empty, it should be able to land. The statement that Hull A and B are used for "station to orbit ferries" implies they can be fully laden while on the ground.

IIRC, the C has the highest weapons loadout density for any the series, and it is the first into production, so if you want to toy with these, the C is the place to start. The current roadmap has it scheduled to fly in Dec 2019.

Not gonna lie. I actually got shrinkage reading these posts. I don't want to show mine now...
Ironically, mine just grew by 3 bikes today.

Remember some of us have been at this since 2012, so it can seriously build up over time.

If you'd joined the project near the end of 2014 and pledged only $20 a month (50 months), you'd be in concierge by now.
@NaffNaffBobFace makes a honest & reasonable statement here.

I upgraded my Avenger Stalker to the Reliant Kore. Its got great views and I really like its displays and the sounds it makes, however after the free fly I've fallen in love with the Cutlass Black, I might need to spend the $35 to upgrade the Kore.
I have to say after doing a lot of mercenary work in 3.5 that Cutlass Black is very appealing, more so then the Freelancer MIS and Constellation Andromeda.

This bike sale pushed me up to concierge status, bought the RC and an CV for an LTI token since after the first bike i was FUCKING $1 OFF!
Congratulations, I was $4 off when I got there so dropped $5 on UEC. I found it a delightful irony to join the ranks of concierge by buying money.

Welcome to the club of the fanatics that really believe in SC.

I crossed the line of entering Concierge without realizing it was a thing as I recall. I do know that I smashed into the rank of Space Marshal with the purchase of the lucky green Ursa rover.

Modest fleet since 2014. I'm the only one in my circle of gaming friends who plays/backed SC hence the mostly solo or plus +1 ships (my wife will probably join next year). I've got a couple of Rangers for LTI that I might be upgrading to a Drake Vulture and Sabre/Vanguard. There's a bit too much overlap so I'm contemplating upgrading during the anniversary sale. Would like to upgrade the Cutlass to the Cutlass Blue and maybe the 325a to the Hull C.

Either way, it's great looking at other fleets in the org! Would be great once multi-crew is properly implemented.
