The Giant Transport Experimental Air Transport is a Cybran minor experimental unit. It is designed to transport up to 75 non-experimental land units. It is able to transport land based experimentals and ACUs. ACUs count as 15 units. Minor experimentals count as 30 units. Major experimentals count as 50 units. A major benefit of this unit over the standard transporter is a significantly greater speed.

Because of it's outstanding speed, it could outrun enemy fighters and unload devastating firepower on would be 'tails', plus it is able to do hit-and-run ferry orders on a enemy base as well as having a tough hide but however not enough when facing outrageous AA firepower, but it will attack in retailation

The Giant Transport, unlike the Dragonfly, boasts AA of it's own as well as Anti-Personnel but it would still need smaller amount of AA fighters to assist in it's defense should swarms of enemy fighters appear.

Unlike smaller transports, this transport will on avarage survive between 9-14 trips and can also make use of its cannons as in an offensive capacity, should the need arise.


TriviaEdit

  • The UEF Star King Extreme has more health than the Giant Transport, but the Giant Transport has a little more firepower.
  • Giant Transports are built fitting exactly down in a Cybran Air Gantry, as they are both triangular.
  • The Giant Transport is similar to the Cybran Icon. 
  • The Giant Transport is a small cameo of a boss from the Gameboy franchise, Iridion-3D, hense the name is similar to one of the Cybran Giant Transport weapons', the Iridium Rocket Pack. The unit itself resembles the Cytector.

TipsEdit

  • After dropping off all land forces, use Giant Transports as gunships to assist a land rush, attack the enemy's flanks, or to support artillery. Beware of AA as these units are easily shot down if used improperly. The Giant Transport can drop off AA units to defend and support itself.
  • It will tend to follow retreating air units for quite some distance, so it must be watched carefully to avoid accidental loss of the Giant Transport and its cargo.
  • In a amphibious attack, such as on Seton's Clutch, a good escort includes a couple Krakens, some battleships and Megaliths. They provide cover while the Giant Transport deploys its cargo. A Command Class Aircraft Carrier may also be useful to knock out enemy reinforcements further inland.
  • Do be aware of the Giant Transport heading your way, it may contain a nasty surprise, consider attacking with large fighter groups.
