Looking for R7 thrust couplings, sometimes referred to as "tugs"?

A tug is a type of spacecraft designed to tow or otherwise move other vessels. This may be done for repairs or other reasons, such as maneuvering a larger craft in a tight space. They are often small vessels only designed for sublight maneuvering and are not equipped with Slipspace drives. Examples of human craft used as tugs include the Behemoth-class tug[1] and the Bactrian-class freighter.[2] The Covenant are known to use U-shaped tugs to tow damaged ships.[3]

Oliver Birch, a fetcher, had a small tug, Galileo's Worst Enemy, for short-range fetching runs. The tug had a winch that could be used to pull smaller objects into the craft.[4]
