Hr-36 Rapid Assault Transport . The need for speed is a terrible thing... . The T.L.A. Hr-27 was a mixed success at best on the battlefield. Although it combined the qualities of a fighter and transport, it wasn't very effective in either role, and its relatively low speed and large radar signature made it exceptionally poor at infiltration missions. The T.L.A. went back to the drawing board and cranked out a third Hr-series craft, the Hr-36 Rapid Assault Transport, to drop commandos behind enemy lines. The Rapid Assault Transport is meant to deploy elite T.L.A. commandos deep behind enemy lines without attracting notice. As such, it is extremely fast and quite stealthy, but sacrifices much of its effectiveness as a standard dropship. Most notably, it has no VTOL capability. It is designed only to drop commandos into a battle, not to extract them. It is assumed that the T.L.A. commando teams will be picked up by more conventional aircraft or vehicles after their mission is complete. Another major trade-off is that it has very little weaponry. The two Gauss cannons carried on the other Hr-series variants have been maintained, but the unusual placement of its missile pylons means that it is limited to carrying short-range and relatively weak missiles, while the Hr-27 could carry almost any ordinance a standard atmospheric fighter could. The color coordination is getting a little better I think. Originally those two 1X3 gray slopes on the leading edge wing roots were white too, but for some reason the gray piece brings out the subtle angle in the wings a lot more. I'm still scratching my head over why that is. On the bright side: ENGINES. Lots of them. This ship is fully orbit capable, and can deploy from ground bases or capital spacecraft. So it looks a bit ridiculous. Who cares, as long as it's fast? Like the '27, the Hr-36 delivers its troops via a detachable pod. The pod has been lengthened by one stud (mostly for aesthetic reasons, it's not like I'm going to be able to fit another minifig in there) and it now attaches via two pins in the front of the pod rather than with studs on the top. Also like the '27, it has retractable landing gear. Where would I be without it? I think I'd die of shame...
