    The Mobquet Custom Medium Cargo Hauler sports a slightly reinforced hull and extra cargo space, a result of those features has helped to increase this cargo vessel's popularity. This design was an attempt by TaggeCo. to slip another ship construction firm into their line, as Mobquet Swoops and Speeders is a subdivision of that company. As indicated by its name, the Custom Medium Cargo Hauler is easily customizable. Although this vessel saw little market penetration, however, it is fairly popular around Hutt Space. Smugglers have been known to employ this vessel, a famous example would be the Starlight Intruder owned and operated by Salla Zend. It is also known that the Rebels also employ this ship.

    This six engine design places four of its engines directly aft with the remaining two being placed ventrally (but they also face aft, albeit at an angle). It is possible to strip the aft placed engines and increase the number of ventrally placed engines, as proven with the Starlight Intruder. Docking ports are located on the flanks of the forward pod. Cargo loading ramps are located on the flanks of the remaining two pods.
