The Maxillipede shuttle, also known as the Separatist shuttle or Neimoidian shuttle, was a model of shuttle manufactured by Haor Chall Engineering and used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. Its design was similar to the Sheathipede-class transport shuttle, but featured two large dorsal fins instead of one.
History[edit | edit source]
At least one such craft was captured by the Galactic Republic and used by Colonel Meebur Gascon and his team to carry out a covert mission. Later, another one was used by Kraken to transport Clone trooper Tup to Count Dooku. However, republic forces managed to stop it, and take Tup back to the Republic.
