The GTT Argo was a Terran-designed class of transport developed sometime during the start of the Reconstruction era and the beginning of the Second Shivan Incursion. The Argo improved upon on its predecessor, the GTT Elysium, greatly increasing transport capacity, and is generally much more survivable due to much heavier armor. Defensive armament, however, remained deficient and the Argo still requires fighter escort to survive hostile situations.

FS2 Tech Room Description
The GTT Argo has become the standard military transport vehicle for the Terran fleet. Argos sometimes carry new weapon and combat craft prototypes to and from testing grounds or to front-line deployment positions. Military VIPs occasionally commandeer Argos to travel from star system to star system in some semblance of comfort. Argos are most often used as assault transports, carrying squads of Marines through heavy flak to board enemy vessels that Command has decided to capture rather than destroy.
In Greek mythology, Argo was a ship that was sent to retrieve the Golden Fleece. It is said that Hera looked over the crew of the ship, and Athena was instrumental in the construction process. The mission was successful, and the ship was consecrated to Poseidon. The tale of the ship is described in Argonautica, a poem by Apollonius Rhodius.
