Elegant in its own way, the sight of a Lambda Class Shuttle strikes terror into the hearts of Imperial troops and enemies alike, signalling the arrival of a high-ranking officer. Designed to carry passengers in comfort it is traditionally meant to travel only short distances, usually in a convoy or inside a Star Destroyer. While elegant, it is fragile and so has powerful anti-fighter armament. Never designed to be on the front line, it is meant to be guarded by Tie fighters but is still a force to be reckoned with. It is both fast and maneuverable to keep passengers on schedule and has minimal sensors. Exclusive to the Empire, they are both cost-effective and powerful.
