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 war zone 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] Combat Transports are most often sent in after an extended planetary bombardment is conducted.

Supraclass Archetypal Roles[edit]

These vessels typically serve the following archetypal roles:

I-class Combat Transport Supraclass Archetypes
Archetype Type Code Exemplar Remarks
Combat Transport I (Namesake) Iylvir class Light Assault Troop Carrier The Namesake category of military transports includes the smallest smallcraft troop landers to the largest army transports, typically armored to resist enemy fire and armed to provide some measure of suppressive fire of their own.
  • I = Infantry Lander, Combat Transport, etc.
Assault Transport IA Tleiatre class Intruder Transport These vessels specialize in supporting ground operations, and usually are associated with the delivery of troops in combat zones. They also serve in other combat support roles including combat resupply, medevac, communications, and direct/indirect fire support.
  • I = Infantry Lander, Combat Transport, etc.
  • A = Assault Lander, Combat Transport, Intruder Transport, etc.
Multipurpose Combat Transport II Provider class Military Transport Multipurpose Combat Transport often serve several roles and are an all around multipurpose logistic vehicle with the ability to serve as a combat transport as well.
  • I = Infantry Lander, Combat Transport, etc.
  • I = Mult-I-purpose
Troop Transport IT Ihatei class Transport Troop transports move the most common surface combat asset planetside: Infantry. And infantry of all types from the most archaic mounted cavalry to the most high tech battledress or battlle pods.
  • I = Infantry Lander, Combat Transport, etc.
  • T = Troop Transport
Combat Vehicle Transport IV McCrawley class Attack Transport Vehicle transprts move fighting and utility vehicles to the surface from the smallest of utility jeeps to the largest armored tanks. They often require more sophisticated and demanding engineering than simpler troop transports.
  • I = Infantry Lander, Combat Transport, etc.
  • V = Vehicle Transport, AFV Transport, Tank Transport, etc.
Combat Transport Smallcraft / Combat Lander UI Sturmge class Assault Shuttle Combat transport smallcraft or combat landers are smallcraft tasked to bring fighting men, soldiers, mercenaries, marines, etc. to the surface combat environment under fire. Many also carry combat equipment, AFVs, supplies, and/or carry weapons to suppress defenders.
  • U = Utility Smallcraft
  • I = Infantry Lander, Combat Transport, etc.
Boarding Smallcraft UIB Barrister's Gavel class Boarding Gig Boarding smallcraft are combat transport smallcraft focused on boarding actions in space, rather than on delivery to planetside. They will typically not carry vehicles larger than an individual soldier, since they would not fit in a typical target's corridors. Likewise, any mounted weapons are typically to secure the docking, and are not able to fire into the target's corridors to support the boarding.
  • U = Utility Smallcraft
  • I = Infantry Lander, Combat Transport, etc.
  • B = Boarding
NOTES: There is semantic overlap between many of the classes and codes. Some codes organize by mission or capability, others by size and tonnage, and yet others by other characteristics.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No matter how complex or technological advanced combat gets, the basic proviso that infantry take and hold ground has never changed. Getting sophonts with smallarms to the combat zone after the fleets have cleared the way has changed little from the earliest days of sophontic societies. Combat transports perform this role, often under fire.

Aslan Clan Transports & Ihatei[edit]

Aslan society blends the three role users of human assumptions meaning that the ideas of civilian, paramilitary, and military are far more fluid and mixed than in human societies. One of the overwhelming drives of Aslan society is the compulsion for Aslan males to expand and seek more land as Ihatei. As such, Aslan vessels of all types tend to be quickly and fluidly re-purposed as needs arise. An Aslan merchant vessel may peacefully trade one day and be an impromptu mercenary transport the next.
