Beluga Liner
Passenger cruiser

Description

Whale by name, whale by nature, the Beluga is one of the largest ships in the game. As a specialised Passenger Liner the Beluga has multiple module slots that can accommodate all types of passenger cabins. Well armoured, and decently quick for such a large civilian ship, the Beluga has a similar speed to the Hauler. When escorting passengers across the galaxy you’ll need defence, so the Beluga has 6 utility mounts and 5 medium hardpoints. The Beluga can fit a size 7 FSD, but it’s a very heavy ship so it’s more suited for multiple jumps rather than giant leaps.

The Beluga Liner is a passenger ship included in the Elite Dangerous: Horizons 2.2 update. Comparable to an Imperial Cutter in size, the Beluga is designed to carry passengers to their destination in comfort; only it and its smaller cousin the Orca can be equipped with Luxury Suite Cabin modules, allowing it to transport VIPs. Slow and cumbersome, the Beluga is difficult to maneuver inside a dock, but features a Class 7 Frame Shift Drive and a massive fuel tank that gives it an impressive travel range for long-distance cruises.
