DESCRIPTION:

   Marauders are the primary recon/commando dropship in the Peacekeeper fleet.
They have excellent scanner equipment and good stealth capabilities, and are
typically used as scouts and troop transports for boarding missions. Each
Marauder is heavily shielded and carries up to 5 highly trained and well armed
Peacekeeper commandos.

Fuel

   Cesium fuel: Cesium is one of the alkali metals. It reacts explosively with
water, is liquid at or near room temperature, and has more isotopes than any
other element. Humans use it for photoelectric cells and the Peacekeepers use it
for Marauder fuel.

Capacity

   While the inside of the ship has never been shown, it can be assumed it can
fit a great deal of people. In Terra Firma, the ship was shown to be able to
carry 32 people (30 peacekeeper commandos, Captain Braca and Commandant Grayza.
When a ship lands, people leave through an elevator system located in each of
the three landing stalks.

   In a combat situation a marauder can deploy its commandos through a bottom
hatch without having to land. Marauders have a reported top speed of hetch 7.

Weapons

   Marauders are equipped with pulse cannons and missiles. It also has an
immobilizer pulse that can be used to disable ships. Such marauders are usually
part of a Peacekeeper Retrieval Squad, often used to capture and enslave
Leviathans.

Engine Configuration and Landing

   The Marauder has a unique engine setup.  It uses three powerful propulsion
units to propel itself; two positioned on either side of the hull, and one
directly to the rear, all three propelling thrust rear of the ship.  When in
flight, a Marauder is very agile and seems to fly with an inherent grace,
despite it's block-shaped central hull, and looks very fast and impressive.

   When a Marauder lands, it's engines realign themselves to contact the ground
with the thrusters nozzles, extending retracted landing struts to hold the
ship's weight.  When landed, these engines-made-landing gear can deploy
elevators for use by the crew, such as rapid troop deployment.
