BFF-1 bulk freighters were freighters designed by Phylon Freight along with Aratech Repulsor Company, and built under contract by Damorian Manufacturing Corporation.

Characteristics

Tech-room image.

This craft was a standard medium-sized freighter that was common throughout the entire galaxy. It was low-cost, partly due to its lack of defensive armament, effective and capable of extremely long range bulk transport duties. The BFF-1 was designed to haul four Xizor Transport Systems Class-A Cargo Containers, attached in arrays of two on either side of the vessel's main hull, and modified into cheap yet capacious storage holds.

The cargo containers were slightly truncated, however, due to the freighter's length of 120 meters. Ordinarily, a pair of Class-A containers would be 150 meters in length. The length however could be referring to the freighter's main section, which is significantly shorter than the cargo containers surrounding it.

History

A Bff-1 docked on Nar Shaddaa.

During the time of the Galactic Civil War, BFF-1s could be found in almost every container depot, cargo station, customs checkpoint, or shipping port in every sector. Considered easy targets by raiders because of their low sublight speed and lack of defensive weaponry, they often traveled in convoys defended by more combat-worthy starships.

Behind the scenes

  • The BFFs in the first X-wing game were also used as hangars, bases, facilities, repair yards, 'platforms', and haulers. Since the introduction of a richer roster of ships and polygon models in the sequels, these tasks were given to a variety of specialized ships, and BFFs have now a freighter-proper role. In the real world the US airforce calls the B-52 the BFF for Big-Fat-F*** due to the bulk of the freighter this may not be purely coincidental.
