The Type 33 Cargo Runner or Issoku-Class, has all of the appealing features of the Type 30, it is a small, easily customizable starship designed for small cargo and passenger runs. It is the next in the Ge-F7 line, but was redesignated the Ge-L5 due to changes in nomenclature. The interior layout is the same as the original, it is the systems that have been upgraded giving the Ge-L5 better performance. Issoku means fast runner in Yamataigo (邪馬台語).
The Ge-L5 project came about as a result of the Tamahagane Corporation working to revitalize the product line. Following the example of the Ge-T1 series shuttle, the decided to create an updated version of the Cargo Runner, but give it a higher performance. This way the product could appeal to a wider customer base by having two versions on the market. While the design work was accomplished in YE 33, the models released in YE 34.
