History

The Rampage Dropship was designed for a specific purpose of landing a small number of troops either on a planet or station were it could come under fire. It is able to loiter in a fire-zone to provide aerial fire support to a team of five infantry soldiers. It can also be used to transport a single ground vehicle underneath itself, though such vehicles cannot be carried during a re-entry into an atmosphere.

It is run by a three person crew which typically consists of a primary pilot, a secondary pilot/gunner, and a sensor operator/gunner. It is armed with a nose mounted dual railgun turret synced to the pilots control, two rapid fire dual cannon turrets that are retractable into the craft under the control of the gunners, and 4 retractable sets of small missiles. The cannons are meant for atmospheric use as their capability in space is fairly low, though they can be used in an anti-missile form in space with fairly good results. Two large tilting fusion torch drives provide thrust and high levels of maneuverability thanks to a vectored thrust system.
