The Lambda-class T-4a shuttle, also known as the Imperial Lambda, Imperial Transport or the Imperial Shuttle, was a type of transport shuttle with a trihedral foil design used by the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. The shuttles were used by such dignitaries as Darth Vader and Emperor Sheev Palpatine. The hyperdrive-equipped shuttle was armed with two forward double laser cannons, two wing-mounted double cannons, and one rear double laser cannon.

DescriptionEdit

The Lambda-class T-4a shuttle was developed for use in the starfleet of Sheev Palpatine's Galactic Empire. It had three wings: one tall, dorsal stabilizer that remained stationary, and two lower wings that would extend during flight and fold upward for landing. Its shape was considered elegant and a departure from the Empire's usually crude designs. A well-armed vessel, the Lambda-class T-4a shuttle was mounted with two forward-facing double laser cannons, two wing-mounted double cannons, and a rear-facing double laser cannon. It was also equipped with a hyperdrive. A multi-purpose transport, the shuttle was used for ferrying cargo as well as transporting troops into battle. Even the Empire's hierarchy, including Emperor Palpatine himself and his Sith apprentice Darth Vader, travelled in their private Lambda-class T-4a shuttles.[2]
