Planetlifter conventional support aircraft in the transport unit role

Transport is a combat support role performed by certain models of craft, both aerospace and airborne, with a primary mission of conveying material to or from the battlefield.[1][2]


Transports are either airborne or aerospace assets that transfer troops and materials—such as munitions, equipment, and food—between the rear areas and the battle front. The role may be applied to DropShips, small craft, airships, and fixed-wing support vehicles, though rarely to fighters.[1][2]
