The Coilon Class Shuttlecraft stands out as a vessel for the most experienced deep space scouts and engineers. With minimal resources, in the most cramped and extreme conditions possible, the CCS can singlehandedly make recon missions deep into unexplored space.
About this creation
The cockpit is designed to function as a cryochamber in case of emergency, as well as a bunk on the really long deepspace missions.
The design has been slimmed as much as possible to make the fuel last as long as possible.
If everything is lost, the cockpit in cryochamber mode can be jettisoned on its own as an escape pod.
To venture out on a deepspace mission in a CCS is regarded as a sign of extreme selfcontrol and is considered as one of the major achievements among the recon units of the colony forces.
