IISS Curious George Type A Free Trader (Military Starship)

The IISS Curious George is a covert operations/intelligence gathering craft built from a fairly standard TL9 Free Trader. The original vessel was fitted with a Maneuver-2 system to allow frontier landings with a full cargo load. In refitting for Imperial operations, a slightly better TL9 weapons system and an extensive TL15 sensor system was added, along with a Model 9 computer. The Model 9 has been crosslinked into the TL9 systems to allow it to be used for fire control and other combat purposes. The additional electronics systems are contained in a remodeled section of fuel tankage. The loss of tank volume reduces the operating duration of the power plant to 27 days. All original electronics were retained for cover, and the ship would only operate the added active sensors in an emergency. The Curious George has also been fitted with a variable signal transponder system and several sets of ship's papers to allow it to change identity as required by the mission. It is theoretically capable of surviving a fairly detailed internal inspection with its cover identity intact.
