As the Rheinland Military campaign against Liberty ground down into a long, sustained conflict, much of their forces had to be tasked to the frontline. This left large gaps in the patrols at the borderworlds, in the Omega and Sigma regions. Increasingly, the heavily armored but lightly armed Colossus convoys came under pressure from Corsair and Hessian raiders. A distress call could no longer guarantee help would arrive in time.
Realising they were largely on their own beyond Rheinland's borders, Republican Shipping started to look for an alternative with more firepower. Not willing or able to invest into designing a new vessel from scratch, engineers looked through the archives until they came upon the design of a heavily armed H-Fuel transport, a relic from the 80 year war. Releasing it had many of the desired characteristics, a huge cargo capacity, and an extensive point defense system to deter smaller raiders, work was started to adapt the ship as a general cargo vessel. While originally designed for gaseous or liquid cargo transporting, it's pods can now accommodate a wide variety of cargo. This has drawn the attention of various other Rheinland corporations, especially Kruger and ALG.
- This ship is too large to use docking bays, it must use mooring points.
