The Zeta-class cargo shuttle, also known as the Zeta-class Heavy Cargo Shuttle was a type of shuttle used by the Galactic Empire in its fight against the Alliance to Restore the Republic. They were instrumental in carrying Kyber crystals during the construction of the Death Star.
The Zeta-class cargo shuttle featured two levels: an upper deck that housed the ship's controls, and a ventral cargo deck that could be detached and dropped off at a location. The shuttle also had four wings that retracted inwards when landing and outwards when in flight, similar to the Lambda-class T-4a shuttle. In terms of armament, the shuttles featured two wing-mounted heavy laser cannons and three hull-mounted laser cannons.
Directly before the Battle of Yavin, hundreds of these shuttles were used during the Imperial occupation of Jedha to transport kyber crystals for the purpose of powering the Death Star's superlaser.
