These fighters are small, maneuverable, and capable of long patrols, although in combat their light weaponry and slow speed pose a serious problem. Due to all the fluidics conduit, movement through this room should be considered of Moderate difficulty. The lift's outer sliding door is double sealed and can serve as a fully functioning airlock for space walks or pickup and delivery in a vacuum. A second ramp to the upper deck lowers from the ceiling in this compartment to provide access to the cockpit above. This was a bit of a problem because there was no official image or schematic of the side view on a stock Ghtroc 720. Droids without human-like legs should treat this area as Difficult terrain. Its engines and weapons have been upgraded considerably to benefit the major application of the fighter policing and anti-pirate duties.

It is possible but not recommended to use this compartment as a makeshift airlock in the event of an emergency. The escape pods are accessed from pull-down hatches in the ceiling equipped with fold-down ladders for accent into the pod. Ghtroc Industries recommends that all cargo be secured and properly tied down and that all cargo loads be balanced evenly between both cargo holds. This upper ramp lowers to provide access to and from the central foyer in the deck below.
Star Wars Ships and Vehicles: Corellian Engineering Corporation Corellian Engineering Corporation Corellian Engineering Corporation located in the Corellia system is one of the largest and oldest ship manufacturers. The lift can fit containers or objects of a maximum size of 2. Considering what we know about productivity of the major aircraft and aerospace manufactures of Earth, we suspect several thousand Ghtrocs is a very rough estimate at best. It is relatively small, but carries a formidable amount of weaponry; this ship could easily win a battle against a vessel twice its size. According to West End Games, Corellian Corvettes carry six double turbolasers.
This may be one rare case where having too much information created a hindrance in producing a ship. These rooms contain 3 beds 1 normal, 2 bunk , and one tall dresser. Motorcycle carriers are not recommended for use with hitch adapters or extensions. These rooms can be accessed from the ramp compartment or service panels in the floor. Most of our stocked parts ship within 24 hours M-Th. Free-traders found the ships to be affordable and well-suited for small-scale cargo runs to backwater settlements.
Images of the Ghtroc 720 landed with landing gear extended are very rare and in this image we see one of the landing feet of the ship. This area houses the ships main cargo lift. Even security officers aware of this trick can be stumped by the work of an imaginative owner. Descriptions of its various rooms and compartments are listed below. The two aircraft feature a high degree of commonality: the same cross section, the same cockpit for cross-crew qualification.
. To learn more about this ship we would have to look at artwork from other artists and incorporate their interpretations into the design. Unlike the Corellian transports, Ghtrocs have no variation in cockpit configuration — they're centrally mounted. It's nice having the subspace engines close to the cockpit in case you need to effect hasty repairs in a fight, but you'll make it up when you have to split your attention between fore and aft when the hyperdrives go, too. The ship's main reactor is so large, it extends to the upper deck and is surrounded by a ring corridor. The 720 was widely used to haul essential goods from the Outer Rim's commerce centers to outlying colonies.
Note: The Shroud Freighter of the comics is a very radical design as compared to the West End Games ® artwork. When raised, these ramps form the launch track for the escape pods above. In the aft end of this compartment are the ship's main wiring trunks, the ramp control motor, and hydraulic pump. It was extensively used in the Outer Rim Territories, where the now dissolved starship company was based. Where we did get use out of these images were in the landing gear and boarding ramp which were very similar to the older sources. The majority did so they were added on the top view even though that particular reference image didn't have any.
These rooms can be accessed from the forward fuel compartments or service panels on the ceiling of the cargo holds below. The double laser cannon is on a fixed mount forward — the Ghtroc's size make it difficult to line up your field of fire, even with the greater maneuverability. Furthermore, the dorsal surface or zenith top of most Ghtroc 720 artwork depicts similar heat dissipation grilles consistent with sublight drives on both forward fins and in the tail of the ship. We had noted the Shroud Freighter had an upper and lower level in the schematic but were not sure if this applied to the stock model as well. Please note, hitch-mounted motorcycle carriers are not recommended for use on tow-behind trailers including 5th wheel and camping trailers.
Nomenclature We noticed the Ghtroc 720 looked similar to a sea turtle so we decided to refer to parts of the ship in terms of a sea turtle's body. The Action V is the most popular of the series; it is old enough that it is already as widespread as its predecessors, but new enough that it has not yet been rendered outdated. While Ghtroc Industries has since gone out of business, several thousand of the freighters remain in service, especially for simple cargo runs, where combat is not expected. Ceiling hight can accommodate most smaller wheeled or tracked cargo loading equipment or droids. The doors to these compartments are a reinforced blast door intended to prevent decompression in the event the outer landing gear door is damaged. They contain the forward landing gear rooms port and starboard , the premium passenger berths bedrooms , and the central foyer.
Ramps from the above deck provide access to the upper docking rings and allow freight to be slid down to the cargo holds. The ramp when lowered is rated at 700 kilograms and can lift to the closed position the same weight. It has shields — though they're not too powerful — the maneuvering system is better, and there's more room in the hold. These rooms also house various mechanicals and consumables tanks that are vital to ship operation and escape pod operation. The various Corvettes seen in the movies and shown elsewhere have no such weapons, although the nature of this ship probably does allow modification to such a configuration. The ramps when raised serve as launch tracks for the escape pods loaded in the docking arms. For more information, have a look at our Freighter versions Brochure! During typical flight operations, this area will see the most passenger and crew traffic due to its relative central location, proximity to vital ship systems and public-usage compartments.
