K44

From ΔV: Wiki
A K44 in the fleet menu

A prototype of the K44 MHFTR, with only a few units ever built. Designed as a replacement for K37 TNTRL, the K44 featured a much longer cargo bay and built-in MPD generators to provide power to the ship. The magnetoplasmadynamic generators weren't reliable enough for service, and most prototypes still use standard-issue turbines instead. -In-Game Description

K44 MHFTR Prototype
Make Rusatom-Antonoff
Low-Stress 4
Crew 4
Dry mass 54,600 kg
Cargo bay 170 m^3
Processed cargo 14,000 kg

The K44 is an abandoned prototype, only a few ships were ever built, making it a very rare sight in the rings. Despite being drastically longer and heavier, the K44 uses the same thruster layout as the K37, leading to limited maneuverability, especially when filled with cargo. The high-stress hardpoint has been removed in favor of two additional low-stress hardpoints, making it less useful for salvage or combat. The large cargo bay and processed cargo capacity, combined with 4 hardpoints, make the K44 a good choice for mining operations.

Notes

  • The K44 can only be obtained as a derelict, and will never appear in the dealership or as an NPC.
  • Despite lore-wise being a prototype of a new model, K44 is mechanically a variant of the K37 TNTRL.
  • The two rear hardpoints are unable to hold forward-firing weapons, only drones, side-mounted items, and PD turrets.
