Hefty, yet nimble. Sturdy, yet quick. This is the SK-44 Dropship. This machine of war was created to be a full out workhorse, and it is currently the main work-horse of the EAF Army. This beast of a machine can carry massive loads, from the EAF Battle Tank to loads upon loads of highly trained troopers. It was designed with functionality in mind. The EAF needed something quicker than the VDS it had previously been using, and it also needed a platform with more versatility than its predecessors. It is because of this that the engineers at the EAF's main research facility (location location location)got to work quickly and deliberately. The product of their hard work and endless hours in the design lab, the SK-44 "Caelum Navis" DropShip.
About this creation
Here we can see 2 of the 40 caliber machine guns that have been mounted on the SK-44 "Caelum Navis" DropShip. The structural heart of the ship can also be seen. Although seemingly fragile, the ship is made from and carbon fiber strengthened with titanium fibers. This allows the ship to be light and sturdy at the same time.
This is the SK-44's pilot block.
The pilot block opened up, here we can see the seating arrangement of the two pilots. This allows for the pilots to easily view their surroundings.

A view of the engines, these massive machines are made to propell the light, nimble SK-44 along at a dizzying speed.
