In my last article, I’ve tried to compare several silhouette 3 starships from the Star Wars universe within Fantasy Flight Games RPG systems that are capable of a longer hyperdrive travel and can accommodate a minimum of two persons on board. One of them was HWK-290 Light Freighter – not the cheapest choice, but my personal favourite. I do not really have a good reason for that, I’ve never played Star Wars: Dark Forces, and this is where it was introduced, so I do not have my sentiments there. I guess I just like the lines of it, and the concept of a very small, yet a bit more elegant craft, that would give you some degree of independence.
The problem with HWK-290, however, is that there are multiple visions of how does it look like inside, how many persons it can accommodate, can you expect cabins, flashy corridors, or maybe it is more like an interior of U-96 submarine.
On the next pages of this entry I will try to dig through the limited official and more frequent not so official materials we have on HWK-290 and figure out, what version would match the FFG specs we have best.
