XK-16 Orbital Dropship

dropship_underflight

The XK-16 Orbital Dropship is considered the workhorse of the ifritian fleet, its design has successfully lasted over 50 years, and is still in use to this day, albeit with upgraded weaponry and armour. colloquially dubbed as the “Rhino” by CWC forces, it gained its nickname from the dropships tendency to charge at landing zones regardless of enemy firepower. equipped with robust armour and six mortar tubes to clear landing zones, it can distribute damage as well as receive it. the Rhino is kept aloft by a grav-sled array running underneath the craft, with the side thrusters for directional control and accelaration. The C.E.O. has recently approved the dropship for acquiral by external clients.
