Skorzeny

Click for full size -->

The Otto Skorzeny class of Medium Assault Transports have the distinction of being the largest starship ever intended to be able of landing on the surface of a planet.  They can rarely take off again, however.  Instead, they usually land their two battallions of troops on a planet via a combination of Drop Pods, Transit Beacons, Assault Pinnaces, and even a pair of Planetary Assault Pods. They are also the smallest class of transports to carry transatmospheric fighters to provide ground support and fighter cover for the troops on the ground, as well as a pair of twin Mass Drivers.  If forced into a space battle, they are not entirely helpless, but their Lance Torpedo Box Launchers, twin Fusion Cannons, and lone Chemlaser give them only the firepower of a Frigate or Destroyer.

Behind the ScenesEdit

This entire class is something of a mythology gag. First off, the "Rodger Young" from the original Starship Troopers novel was canonically a Skorzeny-class vessel, so we had to have one as well. Several later ships in the class are named for player characters and NPC's who died in the first season of the game. The rest are, as the original Skorzeny-class from the Heinlein novel, named for foot-slogger war heroes, mostly American Medal of Honor winners, but a few other nations' heroes from other eras as well. Otto Skorzeny himself was something of a memetic badass among the original TI players, not only for his real WW2 exploits but for his fictional ones in several Alternate History novels we were fond of at the time. The ship itself was designed by Martin Hohner.
