Description: „At 44 meters long, the YU-410 was relatively large for a light freighter, and could carry a fairly impressive 250 metric tons of cargo.
It was also well armed, with four double laser cannon turrets, mounted on the upper and lower hull and at the front corners of its two cargo bays. However, these advantages came at a price, as the YU-410 was relatively slow and had very poor maneuverability. As part of cost-cutting, it was equipped with smaller than normal engines that led to a low maximum speed and reduced maneuverability. Like most CEC designs, it was easily repaired and modified.
Due to its large cargo capacity and low profile, it was a popular model with merchants and mercenaries. The large cargo space was often converted in opulent living quarters, making the YU-410 into a mobile base of operations. The large cargo bays also helped smugglers hide objects from customs inspectors.“ – Wookieepedia on the YU-410 light freighter.
A nifty little ship that gives pirates something to think about with it’s reasonably strong hull, shields and heavy weapon turrets. While hardly fast or maneuverable, a turtle doesn’t need to be terribly fast if its carrying enough firepower to take on a squad of uglies and be expected to come out on top.
Recommendations: Use snubs with high maneuverability and missiles. Watch out for the turrets.
