The Jōkyaku-Class combines passenger capability and cargo in an efficient package. It became available in YE 36.
This class of ship was originally designed for a balance of passengers and cargo. It features a flexible cabin arrangement allowing the owner to increase the number of passengers with no major structural changes. The ship features twenty four Ge-X3300 - Type 33 Escape Pod, allowing the ship to safely evacuate up to 120 persons. The Jōkyaku-Class is intended to travel in relatively safe regions. For this reason it is lightly armed. They are common at all Ge-H2-1a - Amatsu-Class Spaceport, and most corporate ground facilities without orbital stations.
The Jōkyaku-Class was developed to ferry employees within the Tamahagane Corporation to and from other corporate facilities at no expense. After production started the corporation decided to offer it on the market for use by independents, or other companies.
The Jōkyaku-Class has a very simple streamlined appearance. The body is rectangular with the bow and stern being curved. There are four nacelles that house the STL and graviton engines. A large view port is visible on the bow providing a view from the lounge. There are six large view ports on either side of the ship which allow the passengers and crew to look at the space they are in. Two airlocks are present on the lower level on both sides. A cargo door is visible on the stern and shuttle bay doors for the bow. The protective covers for the Ge-X3300 - Type 33 Escape Pod dot the dorsal and ventral surfaces. Likewise the plasma arrays are also visible.
The corporate ships are painted the standard Tamahagane Corporation scheme. Generic ones are painted white, but customers can customize the hull colors.
