"There's gotta be a full battalion in there. Probably packing armor, too."
Rys, upon seeing a C-9979 landing craft — Quote-audio Listen (file info)[src]

The C-9979 landing craft, more commonly known as the Trade Federation landing ship, was a heavy transport starship used by the Trade Federation,[8] and later the Confederacy of Independent Systems.[7] The Trade Federation armaments committee chose the ship.[9] The C-9979 was an elegantly designed transport manufactured by Haor Chall Engineering and was controlled by a central computer. One C-9979 could subjugate an entire susceptible world.[4] During the Battle of Mon Cala, a C-9979 landing craft was used to transport four Hydroid Medusas under its wings from the planet Karkaris.[10]

Behind the scenesEdit

Star Wars Encyclopedia of Starfighters and Other Vehicles establishes that the C-9979 landing craft is 210 meters in length.[4] The databank and the Encyclopedia had previously established that the wingspan was 149 meters.[5][2] Visibly, the wingspan appears to be greater than the bow-to-stern length of the vessel. It is unclear whether the Encyclopedia of Starfighters and Other Vehicles refers to wingspan or bow-to-stern length.[4]

The Encyclopedia of Starfighters and Other Vehicles also establishes that the C-9979 landing craft can carry up to 361 battle droids,[4] while the 2019 source book Rise of the Separatists establishes that the C-9979 can carry up to 2,500 battle droids and droidekas, depending on its configuration.[3] As Rise of the Separatists is the more recent source, the articles makes the assumption that the newer source is correct.
