"The eyes and ears of the frontier are built at the AEC assembly line on Tachikiawa."

Based on the successful C-242 Starlifter design, the RC-242 has been modified for long range reconnaissance and exploration. Utilizing twin "Event Horizon" warp drives and with the usual supply pods set up to store additional reaction fuel, the RC-242 has unprecedented range for a craft of its size. Additional modifications include a large X band sensor suite in a rotating dorsal pod.

The Arcadian Aerospace forces are known to employ this variant as picket ships for larger fleets and for deep exploration and recon missions. Crews of these vessels affectionately know the RC-242 as "Snoop."

Additional Info: Arcadian Space Forces heavily utilize the C-242 in many capacities, it's modularity lending itself to many additional duties. Other Starlifter varients include; reconnaissance (RC-242), Ground Support (AC-242), VIP Transport (UC-242).
