Description[edit]

The Pegasus Passenger VTOL is a Civilian Support VTOL used for mass transit systems between cities and other population centers on planets. Developed by Blackstone BattleMechs of Inarcs, its recreation was a result of the company trying to diversifying its production lines beyond producing Battlemechs. The vehicle was intended to act a as airborne link to other cities and urbanized settings with which may not have existing airfields.[1][2]

The First production run was sold out in 3067, the Pegasus first served as "Yellow Taxi" on New Exford in the Lyran Alliance. The vehicle was used as link up dense cities of the planet with the company's bright yellow Pegasus VTOLs.[1][2]
