The Dwarf class Lifter is common throughout the Imperium A-Starports, Bases and Depots.  It is the
 tug boat of the Imperium. Crew have couches instead of staterooms, a galley, small medical
facility, and engineering capability for on the spot repairs. It is designed for orbit-surface trips.
The engineering plant is designed for transporting material to a surface. 
The Grav lifter has a large flat bed and 4 attachment grapples.  Hardpoints are used to attach the
vessel to the lifter with cables.  An 540t cargo bay is available for bringing additional craft down
internally. A damaged vessel has little choice if there is no orbital port.
