Description: “Currently the fastest TL class ship in the galaxy, the new Split “Rhino” Heavy Transporter is the technologically superior replacement to the battle-proven Elephant TL. Slightly smaller than Elephant, the Rhino uses advanced cargo compression technology to carry nearly as much cargo as Elephant, at a comparable cost. Rhino also has 40% more shielding, as well superior organo-ceramic armoring. Capable of mounting a mix of Gauss Cannons, Flak Cannons, and short range anti-fighter weapons like Mass Drivers, Rhino is capable of neutralizing multiple threat types. And having access to ammo-based weaponry like GC’s and MD’s means that Rhino class vessels will not be hamstrung by shortages of weapons energy—perhaps the greatest combat weakness of older TL class vessels. Unlike any other TL class vessel, Rhino has a boarding pod launcher, giving her the capability to directly participate in boarding operations. A versatile ship for modern Split fleet commanders, the Rhino classes’ only real weakness is her small fighter bay, which is less than half the size of Elephants’.”
