Description[edit]

The Clippership IV class of DropShuttles debuted in 2422, and was Deimos Clipperships' entry into the .[1] The mass of the Clippership IV was not stated, but it had a cargo capacity of 4,000 tons[1] and as a DropShuttle it would have been limited to no more than 5,000 tons of mass

A modified Clippership IV, the Nimbus III, would become the first-ever proper DropShip in a technical sense in 2458 by being equipped with a K-F Boom and Docking Collar, able to dock with a standardized Hardpoint on a JumpShip.[1] Within a decade of this technological breakthrough, Deimos Clipperships developed two distinct (though related) DropShips from the proven Clippership IV hull, the Clippership V and the 6.400 ton Czar.[1]

Based on the fact that the Nimbus III was a modified Clippership IV, the class has been categorized as both a DropShuttle and a DropShip.
