The Type-9 Heavy is Lakon Spaceways large freighter class. This ship is built to transport large cargos, a job it does very well, but it doesn't stand up well in a fight, although adding a fighter bay improves its combat capability considerably - in the right hands!

— In-Game Description

The Type-9 Heavy is a heavy freighter and is the largest of the four freighters manufactured by Lakon Spaceways. It has a maximum cargo capacity of 532T, the third largest of any ship available, behind only the Imperial Cutter and the Federal Corvette. However, as these 2 ships are much harder to acquire due to costs as well as the superpower rankings associated with them, wealthy traders usually have to choose between the Type-9 or the Anaconda. On paper the Type-9 is better, costing more than 70 million credits less than the Anaconda while having a higher maximum cargo capacity. However, the Anaconda has greater jump range than the Type-9, allowing it to better haul cargo to more distant destinations. Moreover, the Anaconda offers much better defensive and offensive capabilities, since it is significantly more maneuverable, is better armed, has better shield and is harder to be mass locked by other ships.


It is not recommended to engage in combat with the Type-9. It exhibits worse maneuverability and lower speed than any other ship in the game; it has extreme difficulty in shaking smaller ships from its blind spot (using a Fighter Hangar could help mitigate this shortcoming). It has five weapon hardpoints to defend itself. Equipped with turrets, they can force enemy ships to operate with caution and give the Type-9 a chance to escape.

Many pilots have problems fitting through the entrance of Stations while they're first getting used to the Type 9, and it can, therefore, be very expensive for a new pilot to get used to. A Standard Docking Computer can be useful for players who have trouble docking this ship. It should also be noted that the type-9 heavy has better maneuverability when stopped; even though it isn't very useful in combat, it's handy for docking.

The Type-9 first appeared in the development diary videos and in some of the live streams done by Frontier. Later it appeared in the early Alpha stages and is one of the four ships that was in the first release of the Premium Beta.

On December 20, 3303, Lakon Spaceways released a revised model of the Type-9 known as the Type-10 Defender, which was commissioned by the Alliance to help counter the Thargoid threat. The Type-10 improves upon the Type-9's features by adding various combat-oriented improvements without sacrificing cargo capacity.
