The idea is that it is an military ship with good armour and some small weaponry but mainly for self defence.
It will be tasked with ship salvaging, rescue stranded ship crews in highly dangerous areas of space.
If in extreme circumstances it is able to overcharge its tractor beams to inflict some extra damages at close range at vulnerable parts as its enemies are torn apart.
The ship is constructed with survivability in mind and all that extra thick armour have meant that extra scanners had to be sacrificed and all that extra weight from the thick armour meant that the engines are underdimensioned for a ship of this size and are slower then standard UCM ships. Although strong they cant accelerate as fast as standard UCM ships.
Design wise the main hull is were the crew quarters and command deck is located, it has two smaller doors on top and larger doors that leads directly to hangar bays at the front. This is to give the crew an fast access to deploy engineering equipment or armed combat engineers when that task is needed. There are two larger hangars on the sides, in front of these are large tractor beams located for catching and transporting larger damaged ships or asteroids. Those large hangars are also meant to be used as transportation areas for smaller debris fields or scraps but can be used to transport supplies and goods.
Painting wise I gave the ship orange identification marks on a darker military grey base.
