The Soyuz Scout is a variant of the Miranda which features an enlarged aft cargo and shuttlebay section, as well as several large outboard sensor pods.
The ship was adequate for the period it was introduced, but it did not take long for its limitations to manifest themselves. Soyuz Scouts were withdrawn from service by 2288.
I gave the Soyuz ELINT pods to make the ship a good early ELINT ship, yet vulnerable to damage and not too much inherently better than the Miranda.
