The Galley-Class Aerodyne Dropship is effectively a half-weight civillian model of the Trireme-Class Support Ship. Boasting more Armor than her sister class, she nevertheless has less fuel, lighter armament, smaller Cargo Holds and lacks any MASH Theaters. She does retain The additional Communications Equipment of her military-grade relative, while the Lifeboats and Escape Pods are noticeably missing. crew arrangements are arranged in the same fashion as the Trireme, a single First class / Officer's Accommodation for the Captain / Ranking Officer, two Standard Grade Cabins for the other acting Officers, Second-Class allocations for the Gunnery personnel and stinky Steerage for the rest. The Galley-Class DOES retain the Liquid and Refrigerated stowage of her patron class, alongside the Field Kitchen for excellent food on long journeys despite the cramped quarters. While significantly down-gunned from it's military-grade progenitor, a complement of four Small Lasers, eight Medium Lasers and just as many Searchlights ensures that this Dropship will enable it's owner to trade with peace of mind. The Galley gets it's name from the configuration of it's armaments, while having a hull that is effectively a downscaled Trireme.

Designer's Notes:

This ship is a work in progress, and without HeavyMetalAero I'm stuck using MegaMekLab for these. If anyone cares to convert them and re-post them, that'd be fine.
