DESCRIPTION
The YT-2550 sold well enough that Corellian Engineering Corporation decided to continue on with making a new design, but they noticed that the interest in yet another purely civilian freighter was minimal. That introduced a conundrum, where many niches are either already filled or can be filled by other craft. This led R&D down a rabbit hole to discover what has not been oversaturated, and they came back with an interesting market: surveying, exploration, and reconnaissance. A simple freighter design, which easy to maintain, stable, and can last for a long trek without needing a resupply.

After countless failed designs, the YT-2600 finally took form and was released onto the market as a limited production run design with various mining, reconnaissance, and exploration packages. It's stock form was 38 meters in length and carried two dual light laser cannon turrets, and unlike the previous craft it was primarily for speed and long ranged trips. Those who were able to review the design said it was a rather fine long ranged freighter, and it's various design packages added to the craft's value, but it was not really very noteworthy. It sold out rather quickly during its first production run with few flaws found beyond the sensitivity of the communications array at the longest ranges.

This somewhat positive reception combined with the quick sales of the first production run has led CEC to make a habit of, every few years, kicking the production lines back into operation and a few hundred are produced and sold before they go dark again. With each run, the design is further and further refined: the sensor and communication ranges are lengthened, the hull is further refined and strengthened, and even several packages are updated and tweaked. This makes these craft a rare sight in the modern day, as not many are ever produced, yet when one is seen its not very surprising.

LEGALITY
(Mining and Exploration Packages) Legal. Light freighters such as the YT-2600 are considered innocuous enough under most jurisdictions, and are not restricted in most systems.
(Reconnaissance Package) Restricted. Due to the existence of several illegal mods for civilian to have, and how little it changes the design of the craft, the Reconnaissance Package variant of the YT-2600 is a very hard craft to get a hold of. Any civilian operators not a part of a company would be met with heavy scrutiny, and even then those who do legally own them are subject to additional licenses and fees.

INTENT
To introduce a light freighter that can also act as an exploration vessel and to add a new instillation in the YT line.

I wasn't even aware of that one. Thanks @Logan!

Also, this isn't even finished. Never post works in progress. Archived.
