A small airship only capable of fitting a single pilot, this aerial transport was created by the Imperial Arms Development Group. While not designed to travel vast distances, it is extremely effective for traversing dangerous and unstable landscapes. Very durable and cheap production costs make this a premium tool for soldiers in the field.
Also, due to its ease of use, it is used by the Imperial Military School in battle training classes.
