Aegis Assault Shuttle

Aegis Assault Shuttle

sithraider
Originally detailed as being 29 meters long, holding 40 troops and three light combat vehicles. After looking at the supplied pictures, I decided that it looked more like an assault transport. I modified the overall design so that the shuttle can fit inside the Farstar. In this configuration the shuttle would drop a platoon of 25 storm troopers into a hot zone. The orientation of the Laser Cannon and pilots seat suggest that the shuttle would aproach from the pilot side in order to provide support fire. The concussion missile pod drops down so that the gunner/crew chief can reload it. There are 14 panels around the shuttle that drop open and allow the fast deployment of its ground troops. Alternalty, the Shuttle can be fitted with a tractor beem instead of a missile pod. This helps the shuttle hold position outside of another ship. In this instance the troopers inside would be in powered space suits for a boarding assault. The Cockpit was designed by essjayvee, the Missile Pod was pulled off of the TTD-419 Turtle class shuttle designed by spacemarine2000 #Assault_shuttle #Drop_ship #Farstar #Imperial_assault_shuttle
