This is the first ship I have designed in Google SketchUp. It designed to move highly valued or sensitive cargo and to evade capture by the enemy. This particular blockade runner is heavily armed and quite maneuverable for a vessel of it’s size. It’s interior is highly modular and can be configured for a variety of uses and even for civilian use. In the future I may configure some of those variants.
It features many of the performance characteristics with the Millennium Falcon but in a package similar to the Tantive IV Corellian Corvette. It’s most unique feature is the helm section that doubles as a landing craft. The helm/landing craft can remotely pilot the main hull or transfer controls to a computer console on the main bridge while undocked.
