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.

Fully Gallery Here, overview pictures below, including my poorly edited box art picture.  Still learning Gimp. ;)

Great work!
I hope to see this in action in your comic.
It shows close resemblance to the LAAT.
Keep up the good work :thumbup:

I like the little dropship you have made. I can't believe that you can fit 4 clone troopers in that little transport section.

Wow that MOC is amazing. I'm not a fan on how it looks, but it looks like a mini Larty. And i love that drop box feature, it's like the one in the Storm-trooper battle-pack but even better!

I think it's very well designed!  :thumbup:

It looks like the LAAT and combines the function of the imperial dropship with the LAAT and it's small which makes it easy to handle and play with.
I like the way the "container" opens when it's detached. Also the exit of the cockpit is a nice feature.

Great work!

I made this from just scrap leftover white pieces; I didn't touch my Republic Gunship or even the Imperial Dropship.  This is definantly not a mod or alternate of anything. :classic:

And I don't plan on making instructions for this; it's a Legion - Exclusive MOC.

Clonecommando I think you should change the front a little bit

Impressive... Indeed, most Impressive. Exactly what any high-intensity battle zone Commander could use for those... hard to reach spots. Also, very compact, utilizing all available room. Out of curiosity, where do you deploy you munitions, or do the troops just carry their heat? Good work, Clonecommando007.
