Assault Shuttle

From SotS

The contents of this page were introduced in the original Sword of the Stars.



Ship Class: Riders
Description: An Assault Shuttle is used to strafe an enemy colony, killing the colony's population and damaging its infrastructure.
Required Technology: None
Races Allowed: Hiver, Human, Liir, Morrigi, Tarka, Zuul
Effect: Assault Shuttles are short–range vessels carried into battle by associated carriers in order to provide dedicated anti–planetary support.
Notes: The Assault Shuttle is removed from the tactical map while strafing the planet.

Assault Shuttles are carried in dedicated Mission Sections.
A Destroyer Assault Shuttle Section can carry one (1) Assault Shuttle.
An assault shuttle whose carrier is destroyed will seek another carrier with open capacity to dock with and reload.
After the end of combat, assault shuttles and carriers are paired off again. Excess assault shuttles are lost and carriers without assault shuttles will have their assault shuttles replaced only after they are repaired.
