Ship Book:A2L Far Trader


The A2 Far Trader; a common classification for a myriad of similar specification vessels in use throughout the vast Third Imperium.

Perhaps the most recognisable far trader design, the Empress Marava and the Jayhawk class provide the basis for a bigger and more capable class of far trader, the A2L and the A3L.This publication provides details for these new far trader designs.


  • A Description and guided tour of each vessel. 
  • Full colour profiles of several ships currently in service.
  • A sample crew along with complete character information and backgrounds.
  • Complete deck plans, specifications and ship data for two versions of the A2L and one version of the A3L.
  • Classic Traveller specifications, Book 5 - High Guard data and deck plans of the three ships.
  • Play sheet for each version (Mongoose Traveller)
  • A3 size colour deck plans of each ship are included as separate files. (approximately 25mm scale)

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.

Noting the larger floor plans are a bit bright....
Prefer the blueprint look of the other products so far gotten. Nice collection otherwise.
Free Trader and the Subsidized liner are better put together in my opinion. But still a good product.

Would be nice to see added Treatment for this other style. Makes it nice to print off for a poster.
(The bright colors are the same reason I do not play WOW.... ick....)

I was putting the data for the A3Lc (on page 17) into a spreadsheet and noticed you have the computer as 0.3 MCr., instead of 3.0 MCr.

Kind Regards

An excellent buy for Mongoose and Classic Traveller. This ship really extends the options for trade-oriented crews. The inclusion of High Guard stats makes this a must buy for Classic Traveller folks like me.

Pages identified as 29 and 30 in my pdf download (30 and 31 if you print it out) were identical except for the page number.

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.
