Tukera Longliner TL 15

My version of the beautiful Tukera Longliner. I assumed that Tukera, taking advantage of having facilities at every starport en route, and always flying a fixed route (i.e., jump distance is known months in advance), designed their liners to use demountable fuel tanks in one of the holds to carry all the fuel necessary for Jump 4. Since not all jumps on the route are jump 4, for lesser jumps the extra fuel tanks are demounted and replaced with cargo. I assume that with a ship and tanks designed for the purpose, and a trained maintenance crew at each port, demounting the fuel tanks does NOT take 2 weeks; more like 2 days.
