The Clipper model of RSI's Aurora is predestined for light mercantile and transport use. It has a slightly weaker and smaller engine than the other models but has enough room for an extra bulk cargo pod which doubles the cargo capacity to 10 t. The Clipper includes the optional Tarsus AT jump scanner for easier navigation during long cargo hauls.[1]

Commercial text

Customized for mercantile and trading excursions, the Aurora Clipper is the perfect vessel for aspiring entrepreneurs and seasoned traders alike. Swapping a smaller power plant and armor capabilities for an expanded cargo capacity, the Clipper ups the ante for personal merchant craft.[1]


There is some uncertainity about the default Shield model installed in the Clipper. The Aurora ship brochure has contradictory data. On p. 10 it says it is the Gorgon Defender AllStop (Size 1), but on p. 12 the Clipper features the weaker Seal INK-1 (Size 1)[4]. Here we assume the worse case.
