Liang-Dortmund Corporation


The "corp" Pelican[Note 1] is a version of the D79-TC Pelican dropship. It is a seemingly-civilian conversion of the standard military D79, employed by the Liang-Dortmund Corporation during their operations on Meridian.[4][5]

Design details[edit]

Main article: D79-TC Pelican

The corp Pelican is employed by the corporation for lifting and transporting cargo.[4] They are painted in the Liang-Dortmund yellow and white color scheme, and appear to have their weapon systems removed.

Operational history[edit]

At least two corporate Pelicans were present at Meridian Station on Meridian in October 2558. Following the start of the Battle of Meridian and the awakening of a Guardian Custode beneath the planet, these two dropships were used to ferry Fireteam Osiris to Apogee Station to hunt for the rogue Blue Team.[5] Throughout the battle, more corporate Pelicans would engage the Prometheans' Phaetons in the skies above Meridian, with many being shot down.[6]
