    Blessed are you when men

    hate you, when they exclude

    you and insult you and reject

    your name as evil, because o

    the Son of Man. Rejoice in that

    day and leap for joy, because

    great is your reward in heaven

    For that is how their fathers

    treated the prophets. Luke 6:22-23 NIV

    Ghtroc Industries

    Class 720 Light Freighter

    The Ghtroc Class 720 was developed by Frank V

    Bonurawith help from Ross Hedvicek, Ed Obarowski, Paul Cargile, B.M.K., and L.P..

    The deckplan and exterior views are based mainly on the original drawing from Star

    WarsThe Roleplaying Game (page 121), drawn by John Paul Lona, published by

    West End Games.

    Capsule:A less popular, but no less durable freighter design, the Ghtroc

    freighter model became popular in the Outer Rim Territories, where the

    manufacturer[a] was based. While Ghtroc Industries has since gone out of

    business, several thousand of the freighters remain in service, especially for

    simple cargo runs, where combat is not expected.

    Ghtroc 720 Freighter

    The Ghtroc Industries 720 is not as popular as the YT-1300, though it's still

    just as good. It was extensively used in the Outer Rim Territories, where the

    now dissolved starship company[a]was based. Ghtroc Industries designed the

    720 to[b]upgrade the systems on its 580 light freighter, and to compete with

    Corellian Engineering's transport it comes close in some areas, while being

    slightly deficient in others. The 720 was widely used to haul essential goods

    from the Outer Rim's commerce centers to outlying colonies. Free-traders

    found the ships to be affordable and well-suited for small-scale cargo runs to

    backwater settlements. Though the manufacturer[a] has since gone out ofbusiness, several thousand Ghtrocs[c]are still in service throughout the galaxy.

    Parts for the ship are still plentiful,[c]and just as easily jury-rigged as those for

    the Corellian transport.[1]

    The stock Ghtroc is generally a more sound vessel than the YT-1300. It has

    shields though they're not too powerful the maneuvering system is better,

    and there's more room in the hold. Larger size isn't always a benefit: the slow

    ion drives strain to push the transport anywhere. The double laser cannon is on

    a fixed mount forward[d] the Ghtroc's size make it difficult to line up your field

    of fire,[d]even with the greater maneuverability. Most owners take advantage of

    the superstructure configuration amidships to add a dorsal and ventral turretgun. They're best at cargo runs, and aren't as effective in combat as the YT-

    1300.

    Unlike the Corellian transports, Ghtrocs have no variation in cockpit

    configuration they're centrally mounted. Crew quarters, cargo bays and

    escape pods are oriented around a central power core. Since the ion drives

    are both up front and in the aft with the hyperdrives, engineering spaces are

    spread out. It's nice having some of the subspace engines close to the cockpit

    in case you need to effect hasty repairs in a fight, but you'll make it up when you

    have to split your attention between fore and aft when the hyperdrives or the

    rear ion drives go, too.[e]I'd much rather have all the technical access for both

    drives in one place, even if it is in the back.

    Errata and Notes:

    [a]Unknown Corporation

    The specific location of the Ghtroc Industries shipyards, the years it operated, and the time

    period (year) the company went out of business were never mentioned in any official

    publication save for its general location in the Outer Rim Territories. Considering the stats

    indicate a price for a new ship, it suggests some new Class 720s may still be in dealer stock

    and that the company may have gone out of business some time around the Battle of Yavin.[b]Grammar - Word Missing

    The "to" was missing from this sentence in the original source and is believed to be a typo.[c]Unknown Production Scope

    The specific number of Class 720 modelsproduced by the Ghtroc Industriesshipyards, is not

    known nor was it mentioned in any official publication. Considering what we know about

    productivity of the major aircraft and aerospace manufactures of Earth, we suspect "several

    thousand Ghtrocs" is a very rough estimate at best. Based on 21st century Earth fabricationtechnology, we estimate that if the Ghtroc 720was produced for several years, there could be

    as many as 30,000 Ghtroc 720sstill in service in the RPG game setting.[d]Crew Discrepancy

    The original stat for: "Crew: 1 or 2 (can coordinate)" was replaced in later publications with

    "Crew: 1, gunners: 1". This is believed to be a typo because all sources indicate the stock

    Double Laser Cannon is mounted in a fixed-frontfiring position and can only be aimed by the

    pilot maneuvering the ship.[e]Sublight Thruster Locations

    Originally this source said:

    Since the ion drives are up front and the hyperdrives are aft,

    engineering spaces are spread out. It's nice having the subspace engines

    close to the cockpit in case you need to effect hasty repairs in a fight, but

    you'll make it up when you have to split your attention between fore and aft

    when the hyperdrives go, too. Platt's Sm ugglers Guide, pp. 32-33 ( sic)

    However this statement is contradicted by the artwork in three other sources:

    1. Platt's Starport Guide, p. 29

    2. The Star WarsRoleplaying Game, Second Edition, Revised and Expanded, p. 182

    3. Platt's Smugglers Guide, p. 40

    The third source, Platt's Smugglers Guide, p. 40, happens to be the same book that made

    the erroneous statement in the first place. In the artwork of all of those sources, it can be

    clearly seen that all three ships are traveling at sublight speeds and we can see the exhaust ofthe sublight thrust coming out from the rear of those ships. Furthermore, the dorsal surface or

    zenith (top) of most Ghtroc 720artwork depicts similar heat dissipation grilles (consistent with

    sublight drives) on both forward fins and in the tail of the ship. In light of this body of evidence

    that proceeded this publication and the presence of a contradiction in the same book, we

    strongly believe this statement is in error and is a typo. We have thus ignored this statement in

    our ship design.

    Ask y our Gamem aster to ins ure thes e correc tions are allowed and if any changes are needed to f it them into y our cam paign.

    Optional Rules:

    [1] Ease of Modification

    For those Gamemasters who have house rules that give bonuses to modify Corellian-built

    ships, we recommend applying those same house rules to this ship as well.
