The Fleet's need for rapid deployment of special operatives planetside in hostile areas led to the creation of the "Bullfrog" Medium Drop Ship. This atmospheric entry vehicle is capable of dropping out of the hangars of 3rd Fleet's carriers and cruisers to deliver there deadly payloads with pin point precision. With its four powerful directional thrusters the Bullfrog can propel itself with a grace that seems impossible for something its size. As a vehicle designed for covert insertions and special operations support the Bullfrog as also a very capable combat platform. Armed with two pintle mounted rotary autoguns and twin forward mounted gauss cannons the Bullfrog is well equipped to support troops in the field after insertion or after extraction. The only downside to the Bullfrog is that its size makes it an opportune target which is why it only runs night operations planetside.
