Tigris-class Anian Troop Shuttle MINI
Anian Shuttle built to same scale as Kata-class Transport, from the same time period.
About this creation
The Tigris-class Anian Troop shuttle is, as it's name would suggest, the troop transport shuttle of the Anian space navy.

Their highly trained commandos would be ferried from larger craft to planet surfaces with this craft. It is designed to rapidly descend into the atmosphere, then stay low to the ground on the planet for the entirely of the battle.



It was designed without anti-grav wings, which are used to lift craft into space. Because of this it requires either another craft or a extra fuel tank to leave a planet.

The downside is obvious, however the benefits won many battles against their enemies. It's increased speed and rate of descent meant it could land troops many times quicker than the opposition's counterparts.

Once on the planet the slim profile meant it was harder to hit when compared to something like the Kata-class Transport of the Dem.

Many times these crafts would be used, after dropping off their cargo, as fighter support for ground troops. Their maneuverability allowed them to contend with the starfighters that were not designed well for atmospheric fighting.

Super design!!! And I like how it takes into account that most starfighters aren't designed for atmospheric fighting or even flying for that matter. Thus the name "star"fighter... it's not because they fight stars. ;-) So, overall, it'a a very utilitarian design for a shuttle with nice lines and good fire power!
