The Paulos class Troop Transport is a combatant smallcraft.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Comments: 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 allows the simultaneous transport of vehicles, supplies, or equipment during deployment operations.
