A Sentinel-class landing craft, also known as a Sentinel-class shuttle or Imperial landing craft, was large-scale troop transport utilized by the Galactic Empire.

Designed by Sienar Fleet Systems in the shape of its cousin, the Lambda-class T-4a shuttle, this larger, more spacious shuttle was primarily used to ferry a complement of 75 stormtroopers into battle[3]—55 more troops than the Lambda-class.[5] The ship featured three wings: one stationary center foil and two articulated flanking wings.[1] They could also be modified with special containers carrying vehicles.[6]

A Sentinel-class shuttle was once used for transporting the Imperial cadets of the Academy for Young Imperials on Lothal to a nighttime aquatic training mission.[7]

Stormtroopers and the Grand Inquisitor took a Sentinel-class to an old Republic military base called Fort Anaxes, to either capture or eliminate the rebels. After a brief battle on the abandoned base, Kanan Jarrus piloted the Phantom and destroyed the shuttle before running away.[4]

Weeks later, another one was used in the chase of the rebels and Senator Gall Trayvis.[8]

Minister Maketh Tua was to take a shuttle on a meeting with Grand Moff Tarkin when she was rescued by the rebels, but after she boarded it, it exploded as part of a trap set by Agent Kallus and Darth Vader.[9]

The rebels later became notorious for stealing shuttles, such as the shuttle Lagos. Later, a rogue former clone trooper CT-7567, nicknamed Rex, and Jedi Knight Kanan Jarrus used another one of these stolen shuttles during their mission to destroy the Imperial Interdictor.

Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, at least one Sentinel-class shuttle was deployed on Tatooine to find the droids that stole the Death Star plans.[10]

Shortly afterward, Commander Alecia Beck of the ISB used one of the shuttles to carry a squad of stormtroopers off the Vehement during the hunt for Ematt.[11]
