Technical and Historical Notes

The Reentry Pod was an atmospheric reentry transport used by the Zentradi forces. Often launched from Quiltra-Queleual landing ship tanks, the Reentry Pod had a saucer-like shape with a cargo hold that could accommodate up to 25 Regult tactical pods. The many thrusters fitted underneath the pod allowed it to perform rapid descents when landing and takeoffs when retreating.
