Vehicle Description

Front-line transport ships that carry soldiers, vehicles and munitions to the heart of the battle.

The vessels are of American origin, based upon the technologies developed by the Exiles in their Fieldship designs.

Heavenfield -- Landing Craft

Used by General Boynes’ group to supplement their Flagship, the landing craft use Fieldship-based multi-directional turbines to raise the vessel to a maximum of twenty feet above ground level.

Although lightly armoured, the craft have twin forward energy cannon mounted in two turrets, and a heavy plasma thrower at the rear of the vessel.
