Design Notes - This was a quick design for a Van with 200 points of armor, yet no C/A frame. After that, the sky was the limit. To get the lightest possible engine, I used IC. In order to use all my space, I wanted sloped/streamlined as well as a 2 man crew and component armor. The lightest weaponry per space comes from defense, especially the HDs. The option cars are because 200 pts is really high, and after I made the base workable design, I felt it could be more protected/usable with a few more tweaks.

Name Notes - Osiris, a god of the Egyptian pantheon, is a large extrasolar (i.e. outside our solar system) planet. Osiris is an unofficial name, it's 'real' name is HD 209458 b.
