  • Can carry 40 passengers.
  • Vehicles can be carried, at a cost of 10 passengers each.
  • Has forward and rear ramps.
  • Can carry up to 50 tonnes of cargo if not carrying passengers or vehicles.
  • Delivery. The Ghoush can deliver a good number of troops into the fray quickly. It is slightly quicker than usual.
  • Covering Fire. Though limited in strength, the Ghoush has two quad lasers which can provide cover for disembarking troops.
  • Target. The Ghoush is big and not very agile. If the enemy gets a bead on it, there is not much in the way of dodging it can do.
  • Underarmed. With only two quad lasers for a transport this size, the Ghoush is very underarmed especially against air enemies.
The Ghoush, named for the large yet sturdy beast of burden and food on Tygara, came into existence when Firemane decided to remedy its lack of dedicated transports. Previously, Firemane had used other company’s transports, and whilst they had worked well enough, Firemane needed more for their own use and to sell.

The Ghoush can carry up to 40 soldiers or 4 vehicles, or a combination of the two provided the vehicles can fit inside. Usually it carries 20 soldiers and the two Yazgid IFVs they need.
A squadron of these transports can therefore carry either 240 troops or 24 vehicles, but more usually 120 troops, 12 vehicles. This includes the other equipment and command staff the company needs.
Alternatively the Ghoush can carry some 50 tonnes of cargo, be it military or civilian supplies. The rear and front ramps allow the transport to be rapidly unpacked.

As it is designed to get cargo or passengers into a potentially hostile situation, the ship emphasises defences and speed at the cost of agility and weapons. The Ghoush is basically a bus which can get its cargo into the fray safely and not worry too much more about it.
