The TC 2 is the standard issue cargo container in the GTVA for deep space cargo transport. Its thin hull will preserve Terran-standard atmospheric conditions inside, as long as the hull seal has not been comprised by weapon fire or collision. TC 2 containers are cheap to manufacture and heavily used everywhere but the front lines (where the armored TAC 1 containers are employed, when available).<br><br>

The TSC 2 container is armored, providing more protection for its cargo than does the TC 2. This armor serves mainly to protect against hull breaches due to collisions, as it's not thick enough to provide much protection against enemy attacks. TSC 2s are used in busy supply depots in which collision damage is a hazard.<br><br>

The standard Vasudan cargo container is only slightly different from our own.  The primary difference is that the Vasudan cargo containers are atmospheric as well as deep-space.  Vasudans used cargo containers well before we did, as they needed to transport raw materials from other systems to their own barren world.  Our cargo container was modelled after theirs, although ours is slightly superior in durability.<br><br>

The SAC 3 is the most common Shivan cargo container found thus far. Its thin plating is barely enough to maintain the interior atmospheric integrity against the vacuum of space. As no additional effort was made to armor these containers against attack, it is assumed that only items of low value or importance are carried within. Nevertheless, standing orders are to capture these containers at every opportunity, unless mission orders specifically dictate otherwise.<br><br>

The SAC 2 is a heavily armored variant of the standard Shivan cargo container. Equipment found in captured SAC 2s appears to be more fragile than that found in the more common SAC 3s.

Cargo containers are "ships" in FS1 and FS2 that are used to carry supplies. They are transported by various freighters, usually matching one type of container to one type of freighter, (with the exception of the GTFr Poseidon) though most freighters can carry any container without issue.

More information about the FS1 containers and FS2 containers can be found in their respective ship databases.

Below is a quick image reference to all FS1 and FS2 cargo containers.
