    Greetings once again! Markus_McCloud here!

    Today, I am proud to introduce the first ship of McCloudCorp's mainline ships, the Ryu-Class Light Freighter! Ryu-Class ships are named after a type of benevolent Japanese dragon that may grant wishes; in this ship's case, it comes bearing a gift!

    Designed to supply remote areas, Ryu-class ships carry a large McCloudCorp Freight Container under their fuselage, held in place by super-strong magnetic rails.

    While equipped with a small airlock and USD capabilities, the ship can make a landing on any sufficiently-large landing pad or hanger, thanks to its pivoting engines that also serve as landing gear!

    When landed, the ship can deploy a ramp on the starboard side to allow crew to enter and exit!

    In addition to its quite-mighty impulse engines, it also contains a state-of-the-art "quad-jump" FTL drive, enabling it to reach even the most isolated of regions!

    While ill-suited for combat, it's not completely defenseless: the ship is shielded, and it can deter lesser pirates with its three turrets.

    The lower decks contain plenty of amenities to help the ship's crew pass the time, including a high-fidelity sound system, a pool table, full kitchen, bathroom, and individual crew quarters!

    The interior is kept well-lit and signposted to make navigation a breeze!

    With an ergonomic interior for up to four crewmates, powerful impulse and FTL engines, and a large hauling capacity for its size, The Ryu-Class is the perfect choice for getting your goods to the furthest edges of the galaxy in comfort and style!

    (Truth be told, I'm no shipwright, but I'm still pretty proud of this ship! This is honestly the first time I've ever designed a rail elevator and pivoting external thrusters, and I must say, I think the end result came out great! Let me know if you think the same!

    I designed this vessel as my entry for Trident Foundries' Cargo Ship Competition. It meets all the requirements of the competition.)
