The term landing craft was used to describe a starship that served as a transport for armed forces between a capital ship and the surface of a planet. The limit of occupants depended upon the size of the craft, which could be anything from the size of a shuttle to a Corellian Corvette. They were usually deployed to land infantry soldiers, vehicles, and supplies to engage an enemy in combat.
