Background

An aging design with a market and over 15 different models over 50 years by SeeFuture Shipwrights, the Orbital Jumper (OJ) is a popular design among civilians, Agencies, and the Jod Military Forces. Despite its age, the Orbital Jumper has seen "service update" packages (like the Bastion-class Frigate, but with much greater success) on older models to keep them relevant for use, while the newest Orbital Jumper MM-E model is the only model used by the military, which came out in 10 BBY.

The shuttle shares the paint scheme of the JV-7 Prototype built by Cygnus Spaceworks, of which also the Delta-class JV-7 Escort Shuttle shares the same paint scheme.

Roles

With no plans for retirement and upgrade packages coming to the newest Orbital Jumper MME by 0 BBY, the OJ will continue to ferry passengers & small cargo between planetary orbit & planetary surface, as well as limited interplanetary (star system) travel.

While the Jod Military Forces utilizes the OJ for much the similar roles as its civilian & government users do, it also uses the small shuttle for use by the Space Navy Force between starships in a Fleet, as well as the Maritime Force between surface ships and planetary orbit (or long distance travel across a planet).

Models

The only differences between civilian/government models and military models---on the exterior---is armored plating; both civilian/government and military models have a structural frame made of titanium & condensed-matter composite, while civilian & government hull is titanium, the military model features an armored hull is titanium-reinforced alusteel.

All civilian, government, and military models come with an emergency back-up radionics system, built-in distress signal, and 3 Crash Survival Kits.

Orbital Jumper MM-E

The newest model in the Orbital Jumper line by SeeFuture Shipwrights, the Orbital Jumper MM-E (Military Model-E) features a structural frame made of titanium & condensed-matter composite, while the armored hull is titanium-reinforced alusteel.

While the MM-E lacks deflector shields & weapons, it does come equipped with a encryption module for secured communications, an emergency back-up radionics system, built-in distress signal, 2 Crash Survival Kits, and 4 EVA Suits.

The MM-E's only defense is Chaff & Flares.
