Note: This vessel is not commonly encountered, but is listed here for completeness. Special Intelligence missions will likely use this or similarly equipped vessels for insertion, observation, etc.
Because of the meager cargo capacity of the Mark 7, this vessel is sometimes equipped with a docking clamp for an additional load of 50dt (hull as standard, FTL @ 2psc/week, M-drive @ 2G thrust--the vessel will also not be stealth protected unless the carried module or vessel is "stealthed").
