Description (Specifications)[edit]

The main reason to procure combat transports is to have a dedicated logistics capability that can move fighting sophonts, spare parts, supplies, and other materials to locations where they are needed. [1]

Strategy & Tactics (Doctrine)[edit]

Combat Transports are meant to assault enemy planets, moons, and other installations... and often under enemy fire. While purpose built combat transports exist, many such craft are converted from civilian ships. If formally procured, such ships are often armed, uparmored, and otherwise militarized. In some cases, civilian vessels are simply pressed into service. Such pressed ships don't tend to last long in the face of hostility. [2]
