The 50–ton troop transport was designed and produced by the Imperial Navy to meet a long-established need for deployment of troops from orbit to world surface. The 50-ton limit on displacement allows the craft to be deployed on ships having standard 50-ton launch tubes.

Each troop transport can carry 50 combat-ready troops from orbit to planet in a matter of minutes. The 10-ton cargo bay allow the simultaneous transport of vehicles, supplies, or equipment during deployment operations.
