The Gamma-class Light Personnel Carrier was an Imperial shuttle used to supply planetary forces. It was also known as the Telgorn II lpc Gamma-class personnel shuttle, while Rebel ground forces referred to them as Gift boxes.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The Gamma-class Light Personnel Carrier was an extensive modification of the Gamma-class assault shuttle designed to quickly supply planetary forces. It had a large landing gear that left the hull of the ship two meters off the ground when fully extended. The troops and cargo were deployed via a ramp in the belly of the ship.
History[edit | edit source]
Due to the harmless outer appearance but with the capability to deploy a full complement of troops, Rebel ground forces nicknamed these shuttles "gift boxes".
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
While the statistics block in the adventures lists that the shuttle only has three gunners, the text actually says it had four, each one operating one laser cannon. Also, The Abduction gives the shuttle no hyperdrive, while Classic Adventures lists it with a Class 2 hyperdrive and a Class 18 backup, the same as the Assault Shuttle variant.
