The dropship was powered by four propellers mounted on each side of two thrusters and could fit several Wookiee warriors in compartments underneath an airship-like frame. The ship had two forward-facing guns for defense.
In the lead-up to the Battle of Kashyyyk, these craft were used to ferry Wookiee resistance fighters.
Delta Squad was told to help the Wookiees in one of their hangar bays but when they got there the dropship was taking off. General Grievous, who had battled Delta Squad the previous day, arrived in his starfighter. Grievous raced towards them and destroyed the dropship that had just taken off. No Wookiees survived and Grievous flew off leaving his bodyguards to finish the job.
