Okay, let's get goofier... (Dropship)
« on: 03 May 2022, 08:55:42 »
This challenge is to design a lightweight dropship or drop-shuttle designed to deliver a mix of protomechs, conventional vehicles, and battlearmor.

it should share design elements of common vehicle carrier designs in use up to 3067, with a clear and visible lineage to earlier, common (non house specific) dropship designs, and it should (aside from the protomech provisions) be of Inner Sphere build quality.

this vehicle is to be classed as a landing ship transport (LST) and should also fill secondary roles relating to coordination of ground units and air units.

It needs to have as many features as possible while being if possible as inexpensive as possible.  Weapons systems should be common and inexpensive (3025 era or lower-cost post-3050s) and armor should be ferro-aluminium or Starslab, to reflect the need for economical mass-production.

Export sales to allied Clans are projected, but may not actually come to pass.  For bonus points, an 'export model' with Clantech equivalent weapons and equipment may also be posted.

Manufacture should be on a Lyran world.

good luck!

considering i'm going with a DRoST variant, probably not
