About the Sessou

The Sessou Integrity is a freighter intended for commercial shipping. It is the largest freighter that Geshrinari Shipyards currently offers. The design for the Sessou focuses on maximizing its cargo carrying capacity. It comes in two versions the 1a and 1b. The only difference is the 1b is equipped with a large container for hauling liquids in bulk.


When Geshrinari Shipyards became part of Tamahagane Corporation the corporation realized that to compete with some of the other companies, they needed larger ships to move their goods, and to carry stuff for other people.


The Sessou-class is a rounded rectangle which helps it with aerodynamics. The four turbo plasma drives are readily apparent attached to their pylons. There cargo doors on the front, rear and sides. There are two airlocks visible on the bow, on either side of the cargo doors. There is one airlock on the stern located on the top of the ship.
