The Basic Cargo is the only researchable cargo booster in the Ship Lab. It's commonly used by players on special fleets designed only to store and steal cargo.
Strategy and SetupEdit
Usually, players take basic cargo, and fit it onto Genesis cruisers or Rancor battleships or any cheap ships and use them to haul massive amounts of cargo after defeating VEGA Cargo Fleets. In addition, they're also occasionally brought into bases to steal massive amounts of resources from the resource-rich bases, mainly to do daily missions rewarding Blood Amber but occasionally also just purely for amusement or because the attacker is already dry on resources.
Mark IV frigates have three cargo slots and can carry the most resources, if you're willing to invest in crafting mark IV frigates purely for cargo hauling.
Aside from flagships, the highest cargo capacity ship in the game is actually a Mk V Basilisk Cutter.
