Delta Escort Shuttle

In order to cheaply protect smaller convoys without diverting capital ships
from other areas where they may be needed more, the Empire contracted
Cygnus Spaceworks to develop a new type of starship which incorporated
the design aspects of a light transport and an escort starship. Cygnus
modified the design of the Lambda-class shuttle, using it as the basis
of the new Delta-class.

In form, the Delta-class shuttle appears to be a highly modified Lambda.
The main body was extended an extra four meters, allowing room for larger
engines and shield generators. The wings were sloped forward, with a double
laser cannon on the end of each one. The internal cargo space was reduced
with the addition of larger generators, allowing for only 60 metric tons of
cargo to be carried. When on escort/cargo duty, the Delta-class shuttle
usually carries a squad of troops (usually standard Imperial Army troopers).
