The Armored Infantry Dropship is my latest MOC, built for the 54th vs. 44th Corps Challenge at the CABG.
The 222nd Legion, shortly before the return of the 9th Cavalry Regiment, recieved a shipment of Eight Squadrons (96) AIDs, 'Armored Infantry Dropships'. AIDs are a prototype vehicle, one of many in the Republic's ongoing 'Rapid Infantry Deployment' program. The AID has the ability to fly fast into a hot zone, evade enemy defenses, and drop a box pod carrying infantry into a hot zone, all without ever coming to a stand-still or hover.
