When you think handsome bounty hunter making his own way in a galaxy of enemies, you think the Constellation. The Constellation, a multi-person freighter, is the most popular ship in RSI’s current production array. Constellations are beloved by smugglers and merchants alike because they are modular, high powered… and just downright iconic-looking. The Constellation includes a manned turret, a large cargo area and a small flight deck capable of launching a snub fighter in its own defense..
|“||The Constellation would serve as an adequate bomber (it is a space superiority ship, after all) ...||”|
The Aquila is the exploration-focused variant of the Constellation line. It comes with a redesigned cockpit for extra visibility, an advanced sensor package, a P-52 Merlin, and an Ursa rover used for planet-side exploration.
The luxury variant of the Constellation, the Phoenix, comes with a completely redesigned interior, a sensor-dampened area for discrete cargo storage, a Lynx rover, and the Kruger P-72 Archimedes fighter.
The Taurus is the freight-focused variant, consisting of only the most basic of configuration and an expanded cargo hold, at the expense of a Snub Fighter dock and powerplant size.
The Phoenix variant comes with P-72 Archimedes, instead, though any Constellation with the snub fighter deck is capable of operating one.
Cygnus was an early name for one of the Constellation variants.
This was renamed the Phoenix variant.[source?]
