This Fuel Container Transporter was made by "Space Port 5" to refuel their spaceships.
The ship was so made that the ship could be transformed into a Container Carrier when
needed in no time. Also it can carry a drop pod launcher according to the authorities
of Space Port 5. The wings of this spaceship has manouvering trusters for when it needs
to make tight turns.

Armourement
-----------

This ship was orriginally designed to carry containers only and there for there were
no plans to have any weapons on the ship. During the war with Blacktron 3 they did decide
to place some cannons on it but only 2 of these mighty beasts were actually refitted with
4 cannons for tests. Eventually they tested a bolt test with fighters on the deck of the
transporter, this leaded to a new type of spaceship (Carrier spaceship). This test was
finished and almost all remaining ships recieved fighters on their decks for defends.

Deployment
----------

These mega beasts were mostly deployed for long distances and as refuel stations for test
ships. Both the KNT-1 and KNT-2 were used during the war but were scrapped after the
renewed version had arrived. After the war M-Tron bought 4 KNT-1 Transporter's and updated
them to their wishes. These were planned to be replaced 150 years later.

KNT-1
-----

There were actually no replacements for this mega beast but there were other versions.
This version was the orriginal and was the first seen in action during the test run of
the "Stargazer". The ship had a small role in refueling the Stargazer and returned home.
After which it got raided by Blacktron 3 and destroyed during it's voyage home.
After this attack it took a while for Space Port 5 to realise that the problem was bigger
then they thought. Eventually 12 of these beasts were destroyed and another 8 were
in spacedock to be repaired. After the end of the war these beasts were replaced with
their newer version the Mk.3 that did have standard weapons.

KNT-2
-----

This version was almost the same as it's sistership the KNT-1, the main difference was that
the length of these ships were doubled and the ship was used for enormous distances. This
ship was never updated since it was to far away from the battle lines and well protected by
destroyers, gunboats and sentinels. There was only 1 destroyed during a test run with a new
computer system using Windows XE34, the ship couldn't be stopped and splattered into a
O-Class planet leaving no survivors. Microsoft was sued and had to stop making software
directly. The director B.W.Gates was executed by the Nurians on their planet (the same planet
the ship crashed into). These ships were replaced by the Mk.3 that was smaller.

KNT-3
-----

The replacement for both the KNT-1 and KNT-2. The ship had standard cannons and was a little
bigger then the KNT-1 and smaller then the KNT-2. This wasn't really a new version but just
a new sistership to both older version that did fight in the war. The KNT-3 had a small
Medicalbay and weaponry like cannons, also it was better armoured on all sides and had
for the first time shields. The fuel containers were better protected now thanks to plating
that was placed below and above the containers. Also the bridge became a command tower that
had command over droid fighters that were mounted on the top of the hull.

The actual model as it is now, might change it but it isn't a priority. The idea was to create a fuel transporter on minifig scale. This moc will be shown ones in my Star Port 5 war story.
