A by the Imperial Industries Consortium modified System Shuttle used to ferry troops between ships, planets, and space stations and to drop ground forces in case of planetary invasions. Additionally, in the case of emergencies, it serves as a lifeboat. Equipped with a single forward Pulse Laser the crafts Reflective Hull Overlay proofed to be the best defense.

The Drop Shuttle was exclusively distributed to Lambda Liners T5-M01 and the assemble took place in the same high-security shipyard. After the tragic accident that destroyed the shipyard the production of this ship had to be stopped.
