Deep space transports are designed with the depths of lawless space in mind. Possessing defensive capabilities far in excess of standard industrial ships, they provide great protection for whatever cargo is being transported in their massive holds. They are, however, some of the slowest ships to be found floating through space.

Base Time to Warp
Base Time to Warp is essentially the time needed for this ship to align and accelerate until it reaches 75% of its top speed and goes to warp. The time displayed here is the base calculated time with no account for any warp related skills, modules or any other effects.

The Bustard’s six mid slots allow for a huge shield tank. While it is strongly advised for any DST to fit a MWD for the Cloak/MWD trick, which reduces the available tanking slots to five, this is still top of the class. However, due to the relatively weak powergrid means some low slots are also to be sacrificed for a maximum shield tank. At a notable hit to tanking ability, these lows can be dropped to allow speed and agility modules to be fitted, on the other hand. Overall, the Bustard usually carries a slightly smaller tank in raw EHP terms than it's armour tanked peers, as well as having the lowest base speed and agility.
One of the natural advantages of a shield tank over an armor tank is the passive regeneration of shields over time, however this tends to be less of a factor when defending against gankers who generally rely on high Alpha damage rather than sustained damage over long engagements.
As with all DSTs, the Fleet Hanger can hold any item (not only ships) and is therefore the main cargo hold when hauling. It can only be expanded by training the Transport Ships skill (to a maximum of 62,500m3 at Level 5). As Cargo Expanders only affect the tiny main cargo hold which is rarely used they are of little use when fitting a DST.
