General Overview

Class History

The type 6S Shuttlecraft was introduced in 2409. They are the standard shuttlecraft used as Light Dropships by the Military Assault Command Operations (MACO) Forces.

Technical Data

For propulsion, the type 6S is equipped with two 2,500 millicochrane warp nacelles and twelve DeFI 3249 microfusion RCS thrusters. The craft is powered by a fusion reactor core and a starboard and port power supply. It is furthermore equipped with an RCS thruster quad and an atmospheric ramscoop for atmospheric flight. A flight avionics unit aids the pilot with flying the craft. The shuttle also features a forward navigational deflector, a forward sensor array, a forward emitter array, a primary emitter, and a graviton polarity source generator.

Entry to the shuttle is through a large hatch in the rear of the vessel. The hatch can be opened via a control pad next to the impulse engines. There are benches for passenger seating in the aft section, and ample room for cargo. A separate systems display is also found in the aft area, as are storage bins.

Physical Arrangement

At 6m long, 4.4m wide and 2.7m high, the standard shuttle has a mass of 3.38 metric tonnes. It can accommodate two flight crew and eight MACO Soldiers.
