The Beluga Class Liner is one of the most prestigious vessels to travel the space lanes. Only the Imperial Gutamaya liners rival these glorious vessels. If you want to travel in style, this is the vessel to do it in. A fighter hangar can be equipped to these ships.

— In-game Description

The Beluga Liner is a passenger ships added in "The Guardians" update 2.2.[1] Comparable to an Imperial Cutter in mass and even bulkier in volume, the Beluga is designed to carry passengers to their destination in comfort; only it and its smaller cousins the Orca and the Dolphin can be equipped with Luxury Suite Cabin modules, allowing it to transport VIPs. Slow and cumbersome, the Beluga is difficult to maneuver inside a dock, but features a Class 7 Frame Shift Drive and a massive Fuel Tank that gives it an impressive travel range for long-distance cruises. The Beluga Liner is one of the eight ships capable of equipping a Fighter Hangar.

The ship might have heat management issues, especially while entering and exiting a hyperspace jump. This can be somewhat mitigated with higher grade power plants.

The Beluga does suffer though from a lack of outfitting space to fit a Fighter Hangar and a Fuel Scoop superior to a class 4 since it cannot fit a Shield Generator of this size and of the numerous Reserved Compartments.

Due to its high hull mass and lack of class 7 or above unreserved internal compartments, the Beluga is limited to fitting only Class 6 Shield Generators. This makes it currently the only ship that is unable to fit an optimized mass shield generator.

The ship is available only to the owners of the Horizons expansion.[2]

Pre-Release Description Edit

Whale by name, whale by nature, the Beluga is one of the largest ships in the game. As a specialised Passenger Liner the Beluga has multiple module slots that can accommodate all types of passenger cabins. Well armoured, and decently quick for such a large civilian ship, the Beluga has a similar speed to the Hauler. When escorting passengers across the galaxy you’ll need defence, so the Beluga has 6 utility mounts and 5 medium hardpoints. The Beluga has plenty of mid-range sized internal slots (4 threes, 1 four, 2 fives and 4 sixes). The Beluga can fit a size 7 FSD, but it’s a very heavy ship so it’s more suited for multiple jumps rather than giant leaps.
