The Lambda-class shuttle is a cargo and passenger shuttle that is used by
the Imperial fleet. The vessel has a stationary top wing and two folding
bottom wings. In flight, the Lambda resembles an inverted Y, and the two
lower wings fold up when the ship lands. The shuttle rests on two retractable
landing legs located just inside the folding wings. A ramp telescopes from
below the forward fuselage for loading and debarking.
Lambda-class shuttles were originally designed by Sienar Fleet Systems.
Sienar manufactures the shuttles, while Cygnus Spaceworks is subcontracted
to manufacture a more heavily armed military version of the ship. Cygnus
recently has begun producing more lightly armed shuttles that are virtually
identical to the Sienar model.
The Cygnus military version of the shuttle boasts an incredible ten laser
cannons and still can carry up to twenty passengers or eighty tons of cargo.
The ten laser cannons are fire-linked in pairs - four pairs forward firing
and another pair rear firing.
