Second Chance

Second chance 2During the galaxy-spanning conflicts of the Clone Wars, stagnant ship designers had to come up with new and innovative designs to fit the needs of a suddenly mobilized Grand Army. The AIAT/i never saw consistent use due to its unusual balance of capabilities: an interstellar troop carrier that could fly with great speed and precision in an atmosphere, and land on liquid surfaces. It was simply too easy to divide such roles amongst multiple ships, or choose mission-specific designs that would perform better with a narrower scope.

As a smuggling vessel, however, it has a lot to offer. The extremely over-sized sublight engines hint at the speed capabilities, while the snub-wing design can allow for limited powerless gliding when necessary. The ability to land on water, snow, or solid ground makes the craft extremely versatile, and fore and aft laser cannons are sufficient offense for a vessel that can outrun most anything larger than itself. Shala’firith (or one of his predecessors) added a bank of concussion missile launchers, a nod to the craft’s original role, and a shocking degree of firepower for such a small craft.

The power-plant required to run the engines and weapons is substantial, and thus much of the ship’s original cargo/troop carrying capacity has been sacrificed. But as a smuggling vessel it has more than enough room.

In addition the ship carries an X-34 Landspeeder and an Aratech 74-Z Military Speeder Bike.
