The Pirate Train is the largest transport-class vessel available for the Sirius Pirates. Although offering an increased cargo bay, this ship has weaker defensive capabilities than the Pirate Transport. Using the Pirate Train on long and risky routes is considered inefficient; however, it comes in most handy on shorter routes between nearby unlawful bases. Ships of this type are also used for supplying pirate Capital Ship fleets with H-Fuel and other necessary goods.
- This ship is too large to use docking bays, it must use mooring points.

As a part of the infamous "Pirate" Z-line, the legality of this ship is inconsistent throughout Sirius.
Its legal status makes it used either almost exclusively either within Bretonia, by smugglers, or in the independent systems. It should be noted that even in space where its legal status is unregulated or even specifically permitted, harassment from local authorities is to be expected. Despite this, it is still the largest transport available to the Junkers ID
with the Pilgrim
in a close second.

The Pirate train is an interesting vessel to be sure. At first its appearance is disappointing compared to the simple brilliance of the Pirate Transport
but if you look closer some of the rugged appearance has been maintained. Not being built directly by the Liberty Rogues
widens its prospects to be bought by more than just Outcasts
. It’s for sure that this ship was designed solely for smuggling and the occasional legitimate trading. Its increase in cargo hold to 4300 has taken up the space of two of the nine turrets on the Pirate Transport
. With reduced firepower and increased size, this ship was never meant to fight off anything more than your average rookies.
It's a disappointment that you don't get the portable cargo pods that you get with the lawful trains of Sirius, and your instead left with three permanent orange drab pods. The maneuverability has also been greatly reduced, but even though I have not been able to myself, I have
seen many pilots of this ship escape from even the most hopeless situations with their hulls intact; Which tells us that this ship makes an impressive and useful getaway car when being plunged into heavily monitored zones; such as Manhattan
Orbit or New Berlin
. But for some reason I get an annoying vibe from this ship, it just seems too informal for me. But it doesn’t exclude the fact that this is an extraordinary model. My advice is stick to unpopulated smuggling routes and you’ll make your booty there.
