The Milion-class freighter has been in service for only two years before it became clear that larger hulls were needed. The Itinera-class was the result of that need.

The Milion-Class freighter in service with the Krak University States is an oddity.

Initially prototyped as an open-cycle fusion drive craft for intercontinental rapid deployment, the development of the drive field instead transformed it into a broad-function troop and… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Combat Dropship
