M22-T Krayt Gunship
The largest of MandalMotors line of space combat vessels, the M22-T Krayt Gunship, true to its namesake the Krayt Dragon, was a behemoth on the battlefield.
The ship is a two-man gunboat, with massive firepower and high mass. With the feature of a gunner's turret on the top middle, this ship allows for extended coverage and protection. The only draw back to this powerhouse ship is, as usual with multi-passenger craft, the pilot has to fly relatively straight and level for an inexperienced gunner to do any real damage. This is one of the few non-passenger ships which has a full turret not in the tail of the ship.
Over time, the Hutt crime organization established itself as the dominant mercenary faction in known space. To maintain loyalty, Jabba the Hutt commissioned the M22-T Gunship from MandalMotors as a gift for his most powerful lieutenants. Jabba’s under-bosses in remote systems represent a consistent risk to the Hutt empire – they often fight amongst themselves and contemplate large-scale mutinies. With this vessel, his remote commanders could afford to release, fire or kill vast swaths of employees while remaining profitable.
MandalMotors produced many more such gunships as a special order for valued clients. It was so heavily armed and armored, that it attracted attention of the Galactic Empire.
