I've always wondered why the Millenium Falcon looks like the way it does. Why was the cockpit on the side and has a fork front? This picture, which is doing the rounds today on Imgur and Reddit explains it. It's a freight pusher. Those freights are the most common ones used in the Star Wars universe. Now I know why the Falcon had so little cargo space.
I'll be honest, I'm not sure if this is canon but it does explain a lot. Can anyone verify this?
Here's an Imperial Cargo Ship doing the same transportation.
