The Transport Craft (Cargo Bay Type) was a civilian aircraft used in the Macross 7 emigrant fleet. The craft’s underside was a lift that could lower to allow loading of a cargo container or even a variable fighter in Battroid mode. In May 2045, Varauta soldiers used a captured Transport Craft to transport kidnapped City 7 civilians imprisoned in a cargo container. However, the plan was foiled by Basara Nekki and his VF-19 Excalibur Custom.
