"How the hell are we supposed to get the goods in with only one space-plane?"
"Relax, this isn't just any space-plane, its an MT-9."
"No shit? Huh, maybe this job won't be so bad after all."
"Yeah, look here it comes now."
Massive droning roar as an MT-9 Valkyrie engages its VTOL thrusters and bgeins landing procedures.
"Goddamn if that ain't a thing of beauty. All right, lets get her unloaded."

Part 4: Eurocorp MT-9 Valkyrie Superheavy Transatmospheric Cargo Lifter
Soon after the unveiling of the HC-3 Dragon Superheavy Gunship, Eurocorp stunned the world by releasing a cargo spaceplane as its next release in the so-called 'Avatar' line of RDA-based designs.
The MT-9 Superheavy Transatmospheric Cargo Lifter is a massive space plane fitted with powerful pulse-detonation fusion thrusters for forward flight in both atmosphere and space, and heavy-grade contra-gravitic lifters that allowing the craft to breach the atmosphere straight from landing if required and allow for increased agility all around.
Heavy armour of the same manufacture as the infamous B-90 Starfortress provides massive protection and the MT-9 has a carrying capacity equal to most dedicated cargo ships, an advanced dimensional compression allowing for upwards of 2 million metric tonnes of cargo to be carried with ease in special cargo bays.
The MT-9 is also unique for a spaceplane in that it fits its own FTL drive system, a Quake-verse slipgate generator, allowing the MT-9 to travel to distant ports, offload and take on cargo, and then head off to new ports without having to dock with a mothership. An ECS system allows the MT-9 the ability to avoid detection as well, making this spaceplane a rapidly popular purchase for smugglers and special forces in getting in and out without being detected.
Currently the MT-9 is being produced on an order by order basis and despite or perhaps in spite of its advanced design, is selling well in comparison to other cargo spaceplanes in light of its capabilities.
