The Voidwagon-class Transport (also known as the V-Wagon) is a common primitive Jumpship design used by the Gumerian Diktat.  The V-Wagon carries twelve Dropshuttles (or 5,000 ton Dropships, with the 2750 modernization package) in internal Dropshuttle bays.  Despite being an old design, its protection and firepower is actually fairly decent as far as Jumpships go: A NAC/10 discourages attacks by pocket warships, and a large number of quad AC/2 arrays and an integral fighter wing provide significant anti-fighter protection against small groups of fighter craft.

Despite its primitive technology, the Voidwagon is easily produced by old Gumerian shipyards.  The Gumerian Diktat system of Golarion has massive reserves of economically retrievable germanium, driving down their cost of primitive K-F drives, as well as the cost of Voidwagons to around a quarter of their original sticker price.  Because of this, though virtually every other faction in inhabited space had gotten rid of their Dropshuttle transports long before, the V-Wagon remained a staple ship of the Gumerian Diktat, and its post-collapse successor states continue to use and even produce additional V-Wagons for their own use.

I totally missed that you used Golarion as a world... :D
