The drop pod was a simple ship designed to transport a ground vehicle to the surface of a planet. It was pressurized and filled with atmosphere, but there were no passenger accommodations. The drop pod was launched from space, and piloted by a droid brain to the designated landing zone. Once landed, the drop ship was blown apart by self-destructive bolt to release the vehicle inside.[1] Drop pods were also used to carry Imperial probe droids. To keep them intact during crash landings, heat shields were often affixed to the pods.[2]
