DESCRIPTION

  • The V/STOL Hippogrif Dropship is a lightly armored, albeit effective troop transport for battlefield engagements. Being able to carry at a maximum of forty-five individuals aboard it, excluding pilots and gunners, the aircraft can effectively get soldiers behind enemy lines because of it’s size, speed, and defensive measures. If something were to ever go wrong mid-flight in a battlefield, the craft is outfitted with fifty parachutes as a standard for each aircraft encase of in-air emergency to ensure that there will be at least one survivor to continue the good and righteous battle to survive. Along with this, the Hippogriff is outfitted with a number of emergency and reserved supplies encase it needs to either resupply soldiers in the middle of a battlefield or if the aircraft crashes, the passengers will still have a chance of survival.
  • Some Hippogriffs are equipped with a magnetic clamp of sorts that is welded to the bottom of the aircraft. This clamp allows for the easy and relatively safe transport of small vehicles, excluding swoop bikes and speeders of course as there is little effective opportunity to use them to their full effect on a battlefield. Instead, the magnetic clamp will normally hold small transport, wheeled transport craft such as jeeps or APC’s as they are viewed more combative and effective in a war scenario.
