Built over the years by several manufacturers licensing a military patent, the 19-meter-long Conductor-Class Short-Haul Landing Craft covers a dozen special-purpose varieties. All involve military cargo transports ranging from orbital drops to short Hyperspace jumps between neighboring systems.
The most frequent configuration is the CX line, with two configurations: ships named with a CX followed by a two-digit number have additional fuel storage for traveling from gravity well to gravity well; those with a CXB followed by a three-digit number are designed to be carried aboard Capital Ships in landing bays and can carry slightly more cargo. The disdain the sluggish Vehicles draw is expressed in the unofficial names their pilots give them. For example, under CArth Onasi, The CXB-560 becomes The Deadweight. However, the ships can perform for a quality pilot, as Onasi shows in his rescue of Admiral Karath from The Courageous and later from The Arkanian Legacy.
