Jupiter class vessels were developed as the first interstellar ships.  It was fairly difficult to
plot jump travel resulting in the loss of some early vessels.   The first version was a test
vehicle jupiter-1 that successfully travelled to another system and back through automation. 
Eventially the 2Tv  and 2Mv versions were produced. The first version was disk shaped and
had the ability had a smaller internal environment (Tv for Tight Version). The second version
was more spacious for the crews by having external fuel tanks it ejects in take off and is
designed for deeper space flights (Master Version).    Both ships contain a mini-gig (pod)
and atv (chariot) for additional functionality. They are capable of support large crews of 7
but these were originally limited to provide additional resources.
2tv had larger cargo capabilities but lacked 2mv's armour, missile rack.  2mv produces
fuel slower and has a removeable fuel launch tank.
