Description[edit]

The Air Transport is an armored helicopter, able to quickly deliver reinforcements to the front lines. Capable of carrying up to five foot soldiers and a single light vehicle at a time, these units can prove indispensable, regardless if the situation calls for reinforcements or evacuation. The only downside is that, despite their sturdy armor, the Air Transport has no means of offense.


Dossier Intel[edit]

Western Frontier[edit]

"The ten-berth rapid-insertion C-Type Samson transports WF infantry and vehicles in and out of hot spots across the globe. What it lacks in significant offensive capability it more than makes up for in armor."


Tundran Territories[edit]

"Sporting distinctive twin 3-blade coaxial rotors, the safety record of the Z-192 Kamel Rotokoptov is unmatched. Recent widespread crop failures in the Tundran northern provinces have seen these aircraft performing weekly turnip runs to the affected areas."


Solar Empire[edit]

"The Type-9 Foo-Unn was developed following Empress Qa-Len's call for an offensive response to the Iron Legion threat. Many thousands of Imperial soldiers and tanks would cross the oceans to Xylvania in their armored bellies. The Lightning Wars would claim almost all of them."


Anglo Isles[edit]

"The Sycamore M1 Whirlybird transport helicopter sports a turbo-shaft gear arrangement similar to the Frontier Duey AH-86. The origin of this design is hotly contested, conflicting patents preventing the design from going into civilian use."


Xylvania[edit]

"Originally developed as a heavy Bomber, the Gu-52 Zeppelitz has been re-purposed as a transport unit. Twin Zeinkel turbo-shaft engines give huge lifting power, and the cabins provide 54 cubic meters of cargo space."


Iron Legion[edit]

The Iron Legion has not developed this unit.
