Default Favorite Traveller Ship

What is your favorite Traveller ship?

For Player's Ship -
Classic to GT eras, I always had fun with the Sulieman Scout/Courier.

For Encounters -
Classic to GT eras, it was always fun to cross paths with a Broadsword Mercenary Cruiser.

The 400t subsidised merchant hull - in CT it was just the right size for upgrades and it was the featured ship in The Traveller Adventure.

For encounters either the 400t patrol cruiser or the 400t corsair - although I have a soft spot for the 600t subsidised liner too since it also has potential for 'upgrading'.

Scout/Courier. Because no mortgage.

For a PC ship I'm a fan of the 200-ton Far Trader, with its twin bows.

For more general ships, I like the 400-ton patrol cruiser, for it's looks. I like the Gazelle-class for the multiple modes of operation (with/out tanks, dropping or not dropping them for jump, etc.) - I find it's an interesting ship.

For the aesthetics and the fact that it isn't laid out as if it's a surface ship, the Aslan Khtukhao-class clan transport. (Send in a boarding party that isn't expecting the 60-degree shifts in up-and-down, and watch the fun.)

Yeah, the spatula is kind of fun as well.
