The USC Dropships are the primary assault, recon, and support vessels in Earth’s fight against the Breed. These aicrafts are highly maneuverable VTOL-capable vehicles, which are configured for both atmospheric and space flights. They can be pre-loaded with a variety of payloads and are used to ferry GRUNTS and other vehicles from the Darwin to the planet (thanks VE3D). Check out the screens!
