Perhaps because it is attached to some clandestine Imperial unit, this Lambda-class shuttle is colored matte black.

  • Type: Multi-purpose shuttle
  • Weapon: Five double laser cannons
  • Affiliation: Empire

An elegant example that stands apart from typical brutish Imperial engineering, the Lambda-class shuttle is a multi-purpose transport used in the Imperial starfleet. The Empire pressed the shuttle into service for both cargo ferrying and passenger duty. Even the Empire’s elite, like Darth Vader and the Emperor Palpatine used Lambda-class shuttles.

With a trihedral foil design, the craft bears a strong resemblance to Incom’s popular T-16 skyhopper. It has three wings: a stationary center foil and two articulated flanking wings. When in flight, the side wings fold out for greater stabilization. When landing, the wings fold in, shrinking the vessel’s silhouette.
