An example of the so-called "suspended arrangement" or "nose platform", i.e. the configuration formed when several smaller Magnocraft are suspended under the base of a larger "mothership". The characteristic feature of this arrangement is that the main propulsor of each suspended Magnocraft is adjacent to the side propulsor of the mothership. The forces that link all the ships together are formed as a result of mutual attraction between the side propulsors of the mothership and the main propulsors of the ships suspended below it. The figure shows four K3-type Magnocraft suspended under the base of a K5-type Magnocraft (out of a total of eight K3-type ships that can be carried by the sixteen side propulsors of a K5-type mothership).
