The Alliance needed a heavy dropship for their infantry, the GR-75 was not suited to smaller scale operations.Therefore, the VCX-100 were purchased and modified to hold up to 30 infantry plus their equipment. The addition of jamming equipment allows the dropship to interfere with enemy targeting systems. And an additional shield emitter was added to provide better defense. Dropship pilots are incredibly brave, and crazy pilots. They must break thru enemy fighter cordons, avoid fire from capital ships and ground defences to safely deploy their passengers, all the while trying to stay in formation. The VCX-100DS is basically a standard VCX-100 with all the creature comforts of the original design stripped out, space made for the infantry, and the ship modified for speed and damage absorption.
