Ship Review - Iguana

[Iguana pic]

At last, a craft with a half decent cargo capacity. Real trading is now possible, but you may still want to stint the equipment for the extra cargo space. The range is good (7.5 ly), and the speed is excellent. The Iguana is slightly on the unwieldy side but is adequate for the job. The extra missile is always handy.

The price of equipment is probably the main complaint with this ship. Amongst other things this makes the special deliveries a little less profitable (if you use the hyperdrive unit method described in the Moray section).

You will still probably want to give priority to cargo space, but there is enough to justify a few luxuries.
