A Cothon-212 in the fleet menu

Developed in the late 21st century and no longer in production, the Conlido RVM Cothon-212 is an interlunar cargo hauler. While it boasts impressive cargo space, with a robust external frame that doubles as Faraday cage, the interplanetary-first design is not well suited for a ring environment. Exposed low-temperature radiators are notoriously fragile, pylon-based thruster layout makes maneuvering challenging and a converted lifepod serves as a cockpit, limiting crew capacity. -In-Game Description

The Conlido RVM Cothon-212 was originally an automated cargo ship, and has been refitted with a modified lifepod as a cockpit. The size and mass, combined with limited thruster mounts make the 212 a notoriously slow craft. Many pilots rely on nanodrones and point defense to reduce the amount of maneuvering required.


  • Gimballed RCS helps substantially with maneuverability.
  • The two rear hardpoints are unable to hold forward-firing weapons, only drones, side-mounted items, and PD turrets.
  • The Cothon-21x series of ships only have three crew capacity, and are thus unable to have one of each role.
