Escape pod for the Darkblade, capable of entering atmosphere and suffering hard landing while keeping the single occupant safe. Uses repuslorlifts and a special gyroscopic inner shell to adjust landings into the safest position possible. If the pod lands in a way that preventst the occupant from exiting, explosive bolts will fire to break apart the outer shell and allow the inner shell's hatch to open.
These pods can also be loaded with seismic charges to be used as mines or bombs dropped from orbit. These mines will only detonate if no friendly IFFs are detected, in order to prevent a rescue ship that believes it to be a simple escape pod from being destroyed.
