Description

Malabar is the mainline mid-to-long range, medium passenger transport vessel from Mandarava-Csepel Shipworks. It has a sibling desing, a cargo freighter variant called Vatakara. An older model that saw continuous tweaking of it's design for decades. Mandarava-Csepel phased it out in 3140, but it's still in production under license in several independent shipyards throughout the galaxy. The factory model doesn't provide too much comfort for the passengers, but it's easy to refit for more luxury if needed. And Malabar is still a very popular model due to it's sturdiness, generous cargo hold and relatively good performance.

Role

Usually it's used as a passenger transport, although with proper outfitting, it can be turned into a decent exploration or survey craft.
