The C-37 was a fine courier craft offered to the general public during the first corproate war in Truane's Star. Many a civilian crew found fortune with this small ship, running errands for or against the Mining Guild during that dark era. The small craft offered fair quarters and a decent sized hold, although not large enough to be profitable. However, these craft earned a notorious reputation with smugglers who were hiding contraband within the various access plates in the deck and other convenient hidey-holes found throughout the craft...

The C-37's wings and drives rotate 90º on a gimbal to permit VTOL operation...it lifts off the ground like a helicopter and as the drives & wings are angled it begins to move forward like a plane, eventually building enough velocity to break the atmosphere. Planet fall is conducted in the opposite direction: it enters the atmosphere tail first and uses thrust to decelerate, eventually rotating the wings/engines to vertical for a soft landing. The external fuel tanks mount dorsally over the cargo section.
