Official Description

The so-called “cargo” Constellation, the Taurus is actually a dedicated freighter for those looking to make their way in the galaxy. If you’re looking to build and expand your ship yourself with credits earned shipping goods on the spacelanes, the Taurus is the choice for you![4]

The Constellation Taurus is the freight oriented Constellation variant. It was first seen on a hangar poster shown during Around the Verse episode 9.[5]

The Taurus is also much cheaper than the other Constellation variants, but does not come with all of the extra equipment that the others do, for example, the P-52 Merlin (or the P-72 Archimedes for the Phoenix).
