Trans Travel's TT5050 is a newer offering for independant haulers, she made her debut in f.y. 61 as a 20th anniversary of Trans Travel's Pacific release. Much like its sibling Pacific class freighter, the overall design makes it optimum for a wide variety of roles beyond cargo hauling, a crew can make additional income via the trio of passenger cabins as well as offering courier duties to local governments. Without drives the Atlantic measures 105 meters in length and 18 meters at its widest point (the hold). The deck arrangement is simple and straight forward, separating various duties efficiently enough. Many owners are quick to modify the basic design both during the construction phase or after acquisition. The optional Pan Galactic "Eureka" drive adds an extra 100,000Cr per drive and increases the MR to 4. Like the Pacific, a laser battery may be added with no performance penalties.

The Atlantic hasn't caught on in terms of popularity, at least not compared to the original Pacific design from which it was cloned and reduced in size from. The additional drive and software required to operate it boosts the price above that of the Pacific and it carries less cargo. However, the higher performance is worth it to those willing to pay the price, more so with the optional Eureka drives which elevates it to scout ship performance in a freighter package (adding 100,000Cr per drive and an ADF:5).

Used samples can be had for 15 to 50% of new price, depending on condition & upkeep...but tend to be rare compared to the more frequent Pacific class samples out there.
