Vatakara is the mainline mid-to-long range medium cargo freighter vessel from Mandarava-Csepel Shipworks, a variant of Malabar. An older model that saw continuous tweaking of its design for decades, Mandarava-Csepel phased it out in 3140. However, its popularity proved sufficient enough for M-C Shipworks to license it out to several independent shipyards throughout the galaxy. The Vatakara is still a very popular model due to its sturdiness, generous cargo hold and relatively good performance.


Its main role is short to midrange cargo hauling and equipment lifting.
