4-5 Cargo Holds (five tons capacity each).
6 Fuel Tank (five tons hydrogen providing 0.63 mps delta).
Central Hull System
1 Metallic Laminate Armor (dDR 3).

core Fusion Reactor (de-rated, one Power Point).
Rear Hull System
1 Metallic Laminate Armor (dDR 3).
2-4 Nuclear Thermal Rocket Engines (ram-rockets; 0.5G acceleration each).
5-6, core Fuel Tanks (five tons hydrogen providing 0.63 mps delta-V each).

It has a winged hull. One or two bridge crew (a command pilot and a co-pilot) operate this shuttle.
