Ozan Class Insertion Transport

“Oh man!” Said a pained male voice over the com.

“What?” came a bored reply.

“Doesn’t that give you a headache?”

“Doesn’t what give me a headache?”

“That thrumming!”

“What thrumming?”

“Dude, the big ship behind you?  The one we’re guarding till the commander gets back?”

“What about it?”

“The antigrav.  It thrums.”

“… I don’t hear anything”

“You don’t hear it because it’s subsonic.  You feel it.”

“… I don’t feel anything either.  Are you sure you’re ok?”

“No!  I have a headache!”

“Maybe you should stop yelling then.”

“You know what?  Fine.  Never mind.”  

Originally designed as a military transport ship, it has since fallen out of favor (and production) and is now most often encountered with paramilitary security forces and mercenary groups.  Ozan’s are designed to deliver small units of troops with light vehicles dirtside as quickly as possible.  Most often they carry four 5 man light combat vehicles, although other secondary vehicles have been observed ranging from a gang of bikes to a heavy tank.   

Ozan’s were designed without landing struts, as it was presumed that they would be too vulnerable to remain in one spot planetside for long. Instead it relies upon a strong antigravity drive which keeps it above ground.
