The Gaust Dropship Model-3, also known as the Savage Dropship, is a light dropship for atmospheric missions

Description

The Gaust Dropship Model-3 is a light dropship for transporting squad of Machina or a pair of Pretender exoskeletons into battle. The aircraft is built on the same airframe and cockpit as the Blitz Wing Gunship, but has several differences from the Blitz Wing. The most notable is the small rear troop capable of transporting a squad of Machina soldiers or a pair of light walkers, as well as two gunners for the weapons mounted on the doors of the cargo bay. The Savage also has larger engines then the Blitz Wing. In addition, the Savage has two fewer wing hardpoints, two as opposed to four on the Blitz Wing.

Modular Sections

  • Light Hardpoints: There are two wing-mounted light hardpoints on the aircraft, usually for fuel tanks, but can also be used for ordnance

    • Rocket Pods: Two rocket pods for engaging lightly armored targets (total of 24 rockets).
