Ground support vehicle WIP #1

Modified assault transport for ground support. Heavy lasers and 4 light turbolaser mounts. Platoon-company carriage depending on length of mission. The idea is basically a mobile “chunk of fortress” – guns heavy enough to take most plausible ground vehicles, enough troops to deploy to take small points, and shields and mobility to be safe from hand-held weapons and plausibly survive against air vehicles short of starfighters.

    Imperial LAAT? I like it! Perhaphs a variant as a gunboat? Or close range fighter defense for, say, an Imperator?

    Awesome design, maybe increase the shield strength and stonger hull, plus peehaps increase the size to hold at least. 100 troops

      Yep – relatively good performance in atmosphere and low orbit, but drops off a lot in space (and no hyper), so ideally it gets carried on a dropship.

        Oh, so it can actually fly, like a LAAT. I guess I was assuming it was just an armored landspeeder.

    Cool Idea. Not sure about that fin on it’s back just yet. But I’m sure you’ll do something awesome with it!
