NOTES:
The Aral is typical of the hundreds of independent Orion vessels used by various smugglers and privateers in and around the Orion Neutrality Zone. Constructed of mostly prefabricated parts shipped from various locations or stripped from derelicts and captured vessels, she is simple to operate, if not pretty to look at.

The Aral is allegedly part of the fleet of an independent band of privateers who raid the spacelanes usually in groups of three to six ships. Most are as lightly armed us is the Aral but their preponderance of numbers usually tells is a battle against convoys or armed merchantmen.

Like most vessels of her type, the Aral is a one at a kind vessel, although she has many near-sister ships in the 20,000 to 30,000 ton range who conduct the same type of business as she does.
