Description[edit]

The J-37 Ordnance Transport is a support vehicle used for resupplying military units in the field. Based on the earlier J-27 Ordnance Transport, it has been produced in the Capellan Confederation by Ceres Metals since the twenty-eighth century, though production was halted by the Succession Wars. In response to the failings of the J-27, the J-37 is larger, with the ability to carry 17 tons of cargo, and better protected, replacing the vulnerable trailer with an enclosed hold. It also comes with a one-ton Infantry Transport Bay and carries 5.5 tons of combat-grade armor. The vehicle's high speed, powered by a Fusion Engine, allows it to quickly get to its destination and, if necessary, flee from the enemy.

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The vehicle is only armed with an ER Small Laser, meant to provide limited self-protection, manned by a dedicated gunner.

Variants[edit]

When originally produced, the J-37 was armed with only a Small Laser, as well as a weaker frame and armoring. When production restarted in 3076, the vehicle was heavily upgraded to its current configuration.
