The Konya-class Light Merchant (Konya meaning "Horse" in Russian), first produced in 3139 on Alkonost, was a quantum leap from the much older Mul. With doubled drill capacity and more than doubled passenger capacity, the Konyas ply the interstellar trade-routes all over the Alkonost Sector. Its main disadvantage when compared to the older Mul is its lack of armament; but its Fuel Bunkers allow it to drill away from danger even when emerging from a spike drill. It also has a much smaller cargo capacity, which is why many merchants who follow safer routes sometimes remove the Fuel Bunkers and Extended Stores in order to make room for more trade goods.
