The CD-1023 Puffin is a modified version of the civilian Airbus A1023, being used to transport troops and cargo across long distances. The Puffin can carry roughly two Companies of Marines, and their associated equipment, depending on the nature of the equipment brought. The ship is capable of short, inter-system jumps through its own slipspace drive, and carries a number of defence measures, such as LASERs, countermeasure launchers and shielding. The Puffin only has a short range, therefor is not suited to long distances jaunts, such as those capable of the larger Auk.
