The squad ship is a direct modification of the Skyfighter, with its midsection expanded from a single compartment to three cabin sections. These ships are used primarily for troop transport, and specialized variations also serve to transport prisoners, refrigerated items, wounded personnel.
The squad ship is 18 meters long and 10 feet wide. It carries a crew complement of twenty, including the pilot, co-pilot, and 18 troopers. Like the Skyfighter, it is powered by a small fusion reactor, but it has only two laser weapons pointed forward as opposed to the Skyfighter's four lasers. Cruising speed is slower than the Skyfighter, 1.5 to 2 Mach within an atmosphere, but spacial velocity is the same. Composition and other specifications are identical to the Skyfighter.
