$13.20

Lifeblood of the interstellar economy, the 400-ton Subsidized Merchant works the trade routes hauling everything from live cattle to processed diamonds – in bulk. Few other cargo ships have the Type R’s versatility and capacity. It boasts a 200 ton roll-on/roll-off cargo deck, a streamlined hull allowing to touchdown exactly where that cargo is needed and a 20-ton launch for fast passenger turnaround.
It is the Boeing 747 of its day, yet built in far greater numbers.

The Operator’s Manual provides you with the essential guide to this famous starship; it focuses on one particular example: the ICSS Constantine and its crew. Tour the ship, find out how it loads and unloads, explore the numerous variants that have been built and discover just what passengers
get up to while on-board.

The Type R Operator’s Manual is packed with features:

  • New, revised deck plans
  • 3 sets of plans included (Standard Type R, Type RA Assault and Type RS 'Stubbie')
  • Crew details, with skills and characteristics and duties
  • Ten variants including a tanker, research ship and fighter carrier
  • Full walk-through of the deck plan
  • Eight elevations showing the liveries of various operators
  • Deck plans and details of the 20-ton Modular Launch
  • The 5-ton Parasite Fighter, carried on the Fighter Carrier Variant
  • The Scarab cargo container loader – a new vehicle
  • 66 dramatic, unusual or interesting events en-route
  • Detailed ship’s locker
  • Ship Sheet for use in-game

“ICSS Constantine ... cleared for landing, pad four, winds south one-seven, switch channel
one-zero-zero-nine . Make this a Khe Sanh approach, boys, the locals will open up with thirty
mils as soon as they hear your engines. Watch for the flashes of their guns on the ridge
nine-zero-zero metres to the north. Loaders are prepped for your touch-down...
expect a turn-around of one-five minutes, but there WILL be mortar rounds incoming.
Good luck Constantine. Tower out.”


This book is for the Mongoose edition of Traveller and set in the Third Imperium,
although it could fit in just about any other setting.

Loved the details. Was hoping to see a diagram how the Fighter Docked or where it was with relationship to the ship. The Free Trader was my favorite so far from the team. Looking forward to the Scout Courier. (And if they will have [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
