- It is a paramilitary ship.
Designed to transport and support a full company of mercenary troops and their equipment, the Eiaikeiar (usually translated as "Hero"; also "Honored Warrior", "Valorous Conqueror", etc.) class Intruder Transport is an excellent example of Aslan shipbuilding at its' finest. The vessel is built not just to transport troops to the field of battle, but also to give them support once they arrive. Intended for a broad range of mercenary duties, the ship is completely self-sufficient. It is not, however, well-suited for deep space combat situations. Against well-coordinated orbital or planetary defenses, or a fighting ship of the same size, the Intruder Transport fares very poorly indeed.
Basic Ship Characteristics
Following the Imperial Navy and IISS Universal Ship Profile and data, additional information is presented in the format shown here. The small craft factor indicates the number of squadrons (of ten craft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (thousands of tons) where necessary.

|12.||Comments|| The Intruder Transport can carry 63 troops in cabins and bunk rooms, plus 190 individuals in low berth, for a total of 253. Mercenary troops carried on board vary from one unit to another.
All officers in the unit —- from the company commander down to the leaders of each platoon —- remain awake at all times, as does the company NCO. Four medical people and ten mechanics are also kept on standby. All other troops, including additional non-combatant personnel, are kept in low berths until the ship arrives at a new destination.
The presence of an owner's agent on board will displace one of the ship's senior officers, causing a doubling up somewhere in the accommodations. Such an agent will be present any time the ship is operating away from the main unit.
History & Background (Dossier)
In its role as a mercenary transport, however, delivering troops and supporting them in action, the ship performs quite well. It is often employed singly, but can be encountered in the company of other ships where more force is deemed necessary.
