         The Condor infantry transport can transport 336 troops and 20 support vehicles directly onto a battlefield. The craft also features a pair of cargo holds that can accommodate up to 800 tons of supplies each. The vesselís unique design provides a considerable amount of undesignated cargo space as well.
         Each of the Condorís hollow wings, for example, contains huge cavities largely occupied by fuel tanks, weapons bays and landing gear. However, each wing also contains a large amount of "dead" space that can be accessed by a series of passageways. These areas can be used to store up to ten tons of additional equipment, but this is rarely known outside of Condor crews.
         A huge door ramp that opens into an infantry ready area in the aft provides the main access to the vessel. An oversized cargo elevator connects the ramp to the barracks and cargo bays of the Condor's second deck, which contains mess and recreation facilities for the troops, as well as a large training area. The forward section of this deck contains unusually spacious barracks-style quarters for infantry troops.
         Deck three is laid out much like deck two, although the training area and some of the barracks are replaced by a well-equipped medical facility. This facility can treat up to six emergency cases at one time, with converted barracks acting as a small ward.
         The uppermost deck of the DropShip contains crew and command facilities, along with the shipís main computer and a small lounge and conference facility for the battalion staff. Access to the small bridge, which uses a cockpit-like tandem seating arrangement, is via a narrow hallway that passes between the fire control system and the communications gear.
         In 3054 Nimakachi Fusion Products Ltd. began to produce a refitted Condor that features recovered weapons technology. The original designís nose-mounted PPC was replaced by a PPC with an extended range, and the large lasers in the wings and nose were replaced with extended-range systems as well. To cope with the high heat load produced by these weapons, Nimakachi replaced the designís entire coolant system. Nimakachi also added an Artemis IV fire-control system to the nose-mounted LRM system. Initially the proximity of the LRM to the PPC caused the Artemis to malfunction whenever the PPC was used, but models launched after November, 3055, have a special coolant circuit that solves this problem.
         The years since the Fourth Succession War have also seen a number of Condors converted into hospital vessels, with treatment wards replacing the cargo bays. Although the capacity of these craft is limited to 150 patients and 75 medical staff, they feature greatly expanded operating theaters that allow up to ten surgeries to be performed simultaneously. Since the Jihad, Nimakachi began building these "Doves" and have kept a steady flow of sales ever since. The Doves have the same armaments and other characteristics as the Condor, making it easy for Nimakachi to build them in line with the Condors rather than assembling them in another yard complex.
