Description[edit]

A common sight in House Liao and Capellan Confederation air lances, the Transit has armor and weapons to spare. Built as a 'Mech-buster and DropShip attack craft, the Transit isn't fast or agile, but is easy to control and has had few loss of control accidents.

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The main armament of the Transit is the giant Tomodzuru Autocannon/20 located in the nose, along with two tons of ammo to feed the monster autocannon. The four Kajuka Type 2 "Bright Blossom" Medium Lasers are mounted to the front, two in the nose and one in each wing. This gives the Transit a backup for when the ammo supply for the autocannon has been exhausted.

Variants[edit]

  • TR-11 
    Recon version, eliminating the four Medium Lasers to save weight for an enlarged cockpit and extra sensors. This version also has a second seat for an observer. BV (1.0) = 774[4][5], BV (2.0) = 815
  • TR-12 
    The TR-12 is a total redesign, fitted with a Rawlings Extra-Light 250 engine, saving weight for the Lasers to be upgrade to Extended Range versions. The standard autocannon is replaced with a LB 20-X AC with an additional ton of ammunition and an extra ton of armor was added on. BV (1.0) = 1,444[6], BV (2.0) = 1,616
  • TR-13G 
    Based on the Transit Glare, this version offers identical performance and protection to the pilot. The only real change was in the main armament. Unable to secure a steady supply of Improved Heavy Gauss Rifles, the TR-13G instead uses a Long Tom Cannon with three tons of ammunition as its main armament. This massive weapon provided a longer reach and massive firepower against incoming DropShips while not affecting the Transit's traditional ground attack role. The variant use a Endicott Type 28 Maser communications system. BV (2.0) = 1,522[8][9]
