I'll start.
My character Vince (you can find him in the Character section) has three ships, a jetcopter, and an Explorer.
Here are his vehicles, in order of power:

Starship R.S.S. Sunstrike (Frigate, HS 5): +20 to HP (Current HP: 60), painted to look derelict
Starship Aphelion (Assault Scout, HS 3): +10 to HP (Current HP: 25), blue paint job, but also painted to look derelict
Redwillow Enterprises XYAJ500 Jetcopter: Dual machine guns mounted on sides, rocket launcher mounted underneath
Redwillow Enterprises GXTAW1000 Explorer: Blue with red flames paint job, dual machine guns mounted on sides

I designed the RIK security vehicle with some of the vehicle rules that were posted in Star Frontiersman magazine.

That may come in handy for some of Raven's businesses, I may have to check whether I can use those. Thanks for posting!
