The Dropship is a hull-breaking transport Destroyer, being one of the few ships to change classes.

Description

The Dropship is a Destroyer that carries up to 9 players and has high hull damage. It has a unique set of wings on the top with holes for thrusts.

Interior

The back of the Dropship has two large benches, which don't work at the moment. The cockpit has a small pilot's seat and a tiny neon screen in front.

Advantages

  • Decent cargo hold.
  • Good for beginners, as it's highly disposable.
  • Can be threatening to crippled ships and hull tanks like the Cutlass.
  • Carries up to 9 players.

Disadvantages

  • Ineffective against shields.
  • Low overall firepower.
  • Slow and large for it's class.
