A Cothon-217 in the fleet menu

Based on the Cothon-212's proven design, the 217 features an experimental variable geometry processed cargo storage, able to adapt to mission requirements on the fly by dynamically resizing the internal containers. Few of these ships were built, finding use in local operations. Her mass and reduced total cargo capacity make her unsuitable for interplanetary transport. -In-Game Description

Processed cargo 108,000 kg (combined)

The Conlido RVM Cothon-217 "Bender" is a variant of the Cothon-212 cargo hauler. This ship's primary distinction is its variable geometry cargo hold, which allows it dynamically adjust the storage capacity for every mineral type. Rather than carrying a maximum of 27,000kg of each type of ore, the Cothon-217 can carry a total of 108,000kg in any combination. Due to the additional required equipment, the Cothon-217 weighs 20,000kg more than the other Cothon-21x ships.


  • 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.
