Type 9 Landing Transport -- Crew: 5 - Passengers: 50 - Length: 84 Studs
About this creation
The Type 9 Landing Transport is the first purpose built ship designated as a "Landing Transport", capable of taking troops or ship personnel directly from a planet surface to any base, ship, or planet. It carries light armament and has a capacity of 50 passengers, though there are no passenger berths, limiting travel times to a maximum of 24-30 hours. Large rear doors and rear mounted suppression guns allow rapid disembark behind battle lines, though combat insertions are relatively rare in the type's operational history.
