Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Rebellion Era Campaign Guide
The Mobquet Medium Transport is a design of Mobquet Swoops and Speeders (MS&S), a repulsorlift manufacturing company owned in turn by TaggeCo. The only Starship design produced by MS&S, the Medium Transport is a major departure from its normal line of Swoop Bikes and Landspeeders. The design was built with aid from sister company Tagge Industries Shipyards Limited and initially intended for TaggeCo's exclusive use. The ship proved extremely popular, however, and as a result is sold to private concerns as well.
The three nodes of a Mobquet Medium Transport are intentionally modular, allowing it to be modified in sections as needed for its owner's intended use. The standard design has crew quarters, storage, and a few defensive weapons in the front node; speeder racks with external access in the second node; and engineering and computer units in the third node, along with additional storage. However, it is possible to expand the Weapon Systems by reducing the rear storage, or to convert the central node into a passenger section that can carry up to 32 creatures in comfort.
Because TaggeCo has strong connections with the Empire (And many of its subsidiaries have contracts for Imperial vehicles and gear), it managed to have the Mobquet licensed as a Medium Transport rather than a Bulk Hauler or Heavy Cargo Carrier. This classification results in reduced regulation of sales of the 113-meter-long Starship, which is big enough to mount capital-class weapons. Although the ships aren't produced with heavy weapons as standard options, it is not unusual for pirates, smugglers, and Rebels to add a Turbolaser to a Mobquet, often behind hidden panels that blow off if the weapon is fired. The ships are also used as fighter carriers, troop transports, and missile cruisers after extensive modifications, and Imperial customs ships have learned to approach Mobquet Medium Transports with caution.
