Large Load Toss

L5 Station Cargo Vessel

A Large Load Toss (LLT) is an L5 Station or NEO assembled geometric structural support structure employed to transport cargo in space. The most common linear LLT design is modeled after familiar tower crane structures seen in cities on Earth.

LLTs are employed to transport materials and manufactured product in containers most often from the L5 Station to Lunar and Earth orbits.

LLTs have been employed to deliver people and cargo to many solar system locations. Mission targets include the Lunar and Mars orbits and near earth asteroids.

An L5 Station "Junk" is commonly piloted with a Center (a maneuvering module) and two BagShips referred to as the Pilot Bag and the Habitat Bag.

The first LLTs were constructed in Earth orbit to supply resources and cargo for the NASA comet Melone redirection mission.
That mission is commonly referred to as The Capture. Many Capture mission LLTs were unmanned.

A Large Load cargo vessel is often partially or fully disassembled for its component parts on arrival. The first L5 Station (L5S), Lunar Orbital Station (LOS), and Mars Orbital Station (MOS) platforms were assembled from multiple LLT payloads. The deep space habitat at the L2 Communications Station (L2S) was initially constructed from Artimis (Moon) mission boosters and modules.

The Ring Station (RS1) or Near Earth Orbital habitat remains under construction. LLTs and Parade material launches from L5 Station supply over 80% of the Ring Station structural components to date.
