The GTT Corsair


Tech Room Description

The GTT Corsair is a heavy assault troop transport. It's based on the obsolete GTT Elysium transport design chassis. Redesigned with much heavier armor, extra turrets, and thrusters. And with it's optimized powergrid, the GTT Corsair yields twice as much power output as the Elysium.

Blue Planet Tech Room Description

After decades of distinguished service, the Elysium class of transports were showing their age, and a sturdier replacement was needed. Thus the Corsair was born. While larger than the old Elysium, it is still dwarfed by the GTVA tactical transport, Argo. The Corsair is better equipped to defend itself, however. In the past 18 months, the Corsair has proved itself to be a reliable transport even in the heat of battle, conducting high-risk marine insertions. One of its most notable sorties was the ill-fated Kubara boarding.

The even boxier Corsair isn't really a significant improvement over the Elysium. The increases in hull strength and number of turrets help its survivability somewhat, but are countered by its larger profile and slower velocity. To give the Corsair credit, it is at least sturdy enough to weather a dual Cyclops hit. Under most circumstances, a Corsair will have enough firepower and hull integrity to skitter around or even through a battlefield, but in full-scale operations and assaults, it would need to travel in a convoy or require a few escorts.
