Formerly an ore hauler, the Agar has seen it's share of asteroid belts - in fact that's where it's most at home.
the years the Agar has undergone some some changes making it quite adept
at tracing down freeloaders trying to hide amongst the rocks. Reliying
less on speed than brute force, the Agar has augmented sheilding and a
small but formidable arsenal. While a pair of lasers might sufice in less
hostile environments, the Agar has been furthur outfitted with plasma
charged mass driver cannons and a pair of 300fw Turbolasers. The turbolasers
are stowed for normal flight to reduce the chance of inadvertant damage.
The Agar also employs a small pair of loop shunt gravity grapples for
latching onto or repulsing objects up to twice it's own size - even without
it's other weapons these make for a devestating battering ram effect.
Pilot Sven Hardy knows just how much damage his ship can take and is not shy about pushing it to the limit engaged in Oddjobber activities.
Essentially a conservationist, Sven endeavors to keep asteroid feilds clear of man made debris and has been quoted as saying "There's nothing more tranqil than rocks smashing rocks!"
think it was an ore hauler from a istance, or untill it rips your ship
apart with those massive turbolasers."
amazing how much rock there is in space and how few people want to talk
about it. Entire economies are based on asteroid harvesting & when
I want to compare notes, Sven is my go-to guy."
ship should be able to pound it's way through a nickel asteroid that large..."
