  • Description and History

    The Zentradi Light Transport Boat functions as an extended range deployment/retrieval ship either carrying troops and mecha into battle or transporting units back to a larger carrier. At 250 meters in length, the Light Transport Boat is designed with a large internal bay that can hold personnel or even vehicles. Entrance and egress for the main bay is achieved through a single main hangar door at the rear of the craft, protected by two exterior "wing" doors. The large cargo bay can hold up to 25 fully equipped personnel or can hold a lesser number of Reguld and Nousjadeul-Ger battle suits. The Light Transport Boat is a non-combat ship without a fold system, but does feature small guns for defense. One notable operation involving a Light Transport Boat was the Zentradi capture of Roy Focker, Hikaru Ichijo, Misa Hayase, Lynn Kaifun and Lynn Minmay within the rings of Saturn during Space War I.
