Military transport dropship.
A workhorse of the UNSC, Pelican dropships are used by military and civilian agencies throughout human space. Produced in bewildering numbers with dozens of major variants they form the backbone of all medium-lift operations made by the Spirit of Fire. Though they can be used to hot-drop troops and vehicles to a combat zone, the ever-present threat of Banished anti-aerospace cannons deployed near conflict areas means Captain Cutter has strictly limited their tactical utilization.
