The Type 7 Transporter is Lakon Spaceways' mid range transport vessel. This is a new model, released in 3290. It is slow but moves a lot of tonnage for its size.

— In-Game Description

The Type-7 Transporter is a large freighter produced by Lakon Spaceways. A dedicated trading vessel, the Type-7 occupies a niche between the smaller Type-6 Transporter and the larger Type-10 Defender in terms of overall cargo capacity. Although its cargo capacity is unimpressive compared to other large ships, such as the Type-9 Heavy, the Type-7's appeal lies in its relatively low purchase cost for its size and its moderate jump range, making it a highly-accessible option for trading.


Due to the Type-7 requiring a large Landing Pad, it cannot dock at Outposts, which somewhat limits its utility compared to medium ships with smaller cargo capacities such as the Python.

Repair costs on the Type-7 are low which makes trading without shields a reasonable strategy if you can avoid combat along the way.

The weapon hardpoints are located as follows: Two forward mounted Class 1 small hardpoints next to the cockpit (one on each side, visible from cockpit), One underside mounted Class 1 small hardpoint located amidships and off-center to the right, and One top mounted Class 1 small hardpoint located amidships. The top and bottom hardpoints have a full hemisphere of clear lines of fire making them good places for turrets, while the two front mounted hardpoints are mostly suited for fixed and gimballed weapons.

Note: As of v1.4.01 it is possible to overheat and do module damage to a stock T-7 if the frame-shift drive is charged for a jump to supercruise or hyperspace but not throttled up/aligned for a jump.

Location of utility mounts Edit

  • The 1st is in the left cutout on top of the ship.
  • The 2nd is in the right cutout on top of the ship.
  • The 3rd is on the bottom of the ship where the right wing connects to the body.
  • The 4th is on the bottom of the ship where the left wing connects to the body.

Trivia Edit

  • The Type-7 Transporter has the same yaw and pitch speeds, which means it can turn side-to-side just as fast as it can adjust up and down on the nose. This offsets the low manoeuvrability rating when it comes to docking manually. Additionally, the Type-7 has the highest base yaw speed of any jump capable ship.
