Cargo Shuttle

The Cavalo-class of cargo shuttles were designed by TriWorld Transport (a division of Trinity Exocorp) under military contract to carry industry standard cargo containers. Depending on the type of container slotted, a Cavalo can serve as a simple freight hauler, passenger carrier, prisoner transport, or weapons platform. Additional containers have been developed to serve as everything from office space, to medical facilities, to living quarters. There is no end to the variety of roles these shuttles could potentially fulfill.

The lightly-armed Cavalo (Portuguese for “horse”) comes in three varieties: a small version that carries a single HMT-225 container, and two larger variants that haul either one or two of the big HMT-337 containers. The variants are designated the CV225, the CV337, and the CV337-D (for “doublewide”). This product presents the three varieties of shuttle, plus several container layouts in both sizes.

The Cavalo’s have powerful VTOL engines and gravitics to support hovering and precise maneuvering. A built-in grapple and winch system can be used to retrieve, move, or deploy containers. Dedicated couplings are designed to secure the pod in place, supply external power, and allow easy access between the container and the shuttle cabin during flight.

The Cavalo package contains three highly detailed, layered PDF files:

• Main Book
     o 24 page PDF file detailing the interior areas of the shuttles and containers.
     o Contains 3D rendered scenes as well as orthographic views of the ships.
     o Includes system independent statistics designed for easy adaptation to your game of choice.
     o Background, art, and text are on different layers for custom display and printing.

• Map Pages
     o 17 page PDF file containing complete interior maps and instructions for assembly.
     o Miniature-scale maps for tactical combat with an optional 1 inch = 5 ft grid.
     o Divided into pages for easy printing in full color or printer-friendly black and white.
     o Selectable layers include: grid, black & white version, and optional cargo.

• Uncut Map Images
     o A trio of PDF files containing uncut images of the deckplans for the three shuttles.
     o Select either a light or dark background (for printing or projection/display).
     o Includes layers for grid, black & white version, optional cargo, and background choice.

These shuttles provide living space for multiple crew members on long-duration flights. Because it can easily exchange the container(s) being carried to best fit the job at hand, this versatile craft is quickly becoming a favorite in both military and civilian settings. The Cavalo will prove to be a useful addition to any fleet.

A nice little trio of shuttles, each with their own little quirks and personality. Good to see the 225 containers getting some love as well. An excellent supplement to any sci-fi game. [...]

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.
