The [[BattleSpace]] rulebook provides a step-by-step guide to the designing rules by designing a sample ship class; it is explicitly stated at the end of the process that the "completed JumpShip belongs to the ''Hunter'' class". However, this (prototype) ''Hunter'' is slightly different: It has room for 10 passengers, a cargo capacity of 1031.5 tons, and mounts only 1 Anti-Missile system with 3 tons of ammunition (instead of 2 systems with 4 tons). The stats given for the ''Hunter'' in the Large Ships section of the rulebook state a cargo capacity of only 1021 tons, which may be in error as they are identical otherwise.
The standard version presented in
the [[Technical readout 3057]] is the one presented here, and has no passenger capacity, but 1097 tons of cargo.
By the mid-30th century, most ''Hunters'' have been upgraded with a [[Lithium-Fusion Battery]] system, at the cost of a greatly reduced cargo capacity (950 tons less). The unmodified vessels were given to freebirth units.
