Credits: The design of this ship is thanks to the work of AdamKop of Deviantart.com


Intent: The intent for this is to create a quick insertion dropship that not only brings soldiers down to the surface but can be modified to bring troops down. As such, the MCF Umbra-Class Dropship was thought up and designed by Void whom then turned over the designs to Juthan. The Dropship itself is a specialty ship made for use by the Maw Consortium and by extension, The Corsair Brotherhood. With that in mind it is to be major produced and fielded during operations that require a larger presence than the previously constructed Shard-Class Boarding/Drop Pod could deliver.

Manufacturer: Subbach-Innes, Keshiri Driveworks

Model: MCF Umbra-Class Dropship

Affiliation: Approved Keshiri Driveworks Customers

Modularity: Highly Modifiable due to Cargo Capacity when needed to transport vehicles

Production: Mass-Produced

Material: Durasteel

Description: The MCF Umbra-Class drop ship is a quick, maneuverable, transport for supplies, soldiers, and vehicles. Its deflector shields protect it for a time against fighter fire and light ground weaponry but falls short on heavy defense against laser weaponry and no defense other than the hull against kinetic weapons. It has a fully functioning radar and nav-computer, both of which borrowed from no longer flyable fighters the Consortium had and reverse engineered. Its engines allow for it to gain the speed of a TIE bomber, though its mobility suffers if carrying heavy vehicles and walkers, making it an easy target. It is equipped with its own air supply allowing for it to be launched from space and to enter a planet below instead of needing the command vessel to enter the atmosphere.

Minor factions aren't allowed to mass-produce. Otherwise this looks good. I like the detail.

Pending consultation with staff, apparently the thread I used for reference is out-of-date. There's nothing stopping this thing from being approved. Awaiting a staff stamp.
