  • Highly Protected - The Triremis comes equipped with a dual-layered deflector shield and a reinforced hull and armor plating, giving superb defensive capabilities
  • Fast - The Triremis was designed around heavy defense, but also to be a fast dropship to allow speedy insertions of troopers to wherever they need to go.
  • Maneuverable - The Triremis is also fairly well maneuverable
  • Barely Armed - The Triremis is only equipped with two laser cannons, both of them mounted under the cockpit
  • Large Frame - The Triremis has a rather large frame, so while it is pretty well armored and shielded, it does make it quite the tempting target
  • Offloading - When landing, the pilot has to disable the deflector shields to allow the troops being carried inside to exit, leaving it open for ground fire for a time

Taking stock of the ships that Aurora Industries produced and sold, it became rather blatant that Aurora had not exactly developed a new dropship for sometime. The only actually produced by the company was the old D25 dropship the company had acquired from buying out a previous version of Nubia Star Drives. That needed to change, so the designers at Aurora began work on a new infantry dropship: the Triremis-class. The new dropship was designed with two features in mind: heavy defenses and speed and maneuverability to reach designated landing zones for its passengers.

The Triremis is equipped with a dual-layered deflector shield system, along with a reinforced hull and armor plating. The engines were buffed up to grant it additional speed, however there were tradeoffs. The designers felt that weaponry wasn't going to work with everything they were going for, so the Triremis is only equipped with two nose mounted laser cannons. In regards to passenger capacity, the Triremis is designed to hold thirty-six troopers in its hold, and their equipment, and also comes equipped with four deployable survey drones so the ship can scout out landing zones.

Four deployable Sensor Drones for scouting a landing zone
Do you have a link for these? Or alternatively, could you provide us with more details about their abilities? (any unsual or advanced sensors, ability to move, etc)

I do not have a link to them as it is a red link on Wookiepedia, but they were mentioned in the book Outcast. Lando used them to map the tunnel system under Kessel, so these drones are basically just mapping the terrain when they are deployed. Nothing special beyond that.
