Dawn of Defiance
Delta-class stormtrooper transports
The Delta-class DX-9 stormtrooper transport was an assault vehicle, built by Telgorn Corporation, which was designed to carry Imperial stormtroopers into battle.
The vessel did not carry a hyperdrive, and as such it was used as an assault shuttled, often launched from bigger ships or planetary garrisons. The Delta Class Dx-9 Stormtrooper Transport featured very strong shielding, particularly in the forward section. It was designed to take over enemy ships through boarding and deploying stormtroopers straight onto the enemy ship. Employing a universal docking mechanism the Dx-9 could attach itself to most ships or it could even bore its own hole through the hulls of most enemy vessels.
This small two engine craft was heavily armed and was a dangerous threat to the enemies of the Empire. In short, these craft were designed to carry Stormtroopers into battle and assist in boarding operations.
Though it was slow, it was surprisingly maneuverable. When employed in combination with the Assault Gunboat, the Stormtrooper Transport were unmatched. Located behind the proton torpedo launchers are the engines. These craft were also capable of mine laying after small modification, transferring pilots to their starfighters or reloading starfighters of depleted warheads.
