Overview:

         Based on the Star League-era transport ship of the same name, the modern Clan Carrack military transport first entered service a little more than 100 years ago. ComStar analysts have been unable to determine how many of the Carracks currently in service are upgraded Star League vessels, and how many are new Clan-built ships.
         Carracks serve with all the Clans, but the merchant castes of Clans Diamond Shark and Nova Cat seem to possess the largest numbers of these vessels. These two Clans commonly use Carracks in their Deep Periphery and Occupation Zone trading operations, particularly in potentially troublesome areas such as the Hanseatic League. Clan Ghost Bear's recent fleet movements also included that Clan's small fleet of Carracks, implying the convoy was transporting cargo of considerable value. ComStar intelligence agents have since determined that the Clan was, in fact, in the process of transporting its entire civilian population to the Occupation Zone.
         Unlike most Clan re-designed and upgraded jump vessels, the Carrack is not equipped with a lithium-fusion battery or advanced armor. The Clan Carrack does, however, feature hull-sealant technology. The cargo hold surrounds the vesselís compact K-F drive core and is flanked, in turn, by two small-craft bays. Most frequently, these bays house a pair of aerospace fighters and a pair of shuttlecraft, but the exact composition of the small-craft complement appears to depend on each individual vesselís captain.
