         The Triumph Class DropShip is designed to carry a fully equipped armor battalion onto the battlefield. Able to transport up to 45 tanks and their crews, the ship is one of the common classes of DropShips in the Successor States. In addition to transporting armored vehicles, its cavernous vehicle bay is also perfect for transporting conventional aircraft, artillery, BattleMechs, and AeroSpace Fighters. Though the aerodyne shape limits its transit flight characteristics, it does allow the Triumph’s armored vehicles to be loaded and unloaded easily.
         The ship’s large interior is divided into five decks. The bottommost deck houses the ship’s transit drives, landing gear, and fuel tankage. Running through the center of the deck is a portion of the ship’s vehicle bay, which has room for 15 tanks lined up end to end. Near the aft end are two cargo bays, each capable of holding tons of supplies and equipment. The bays each have enough floor area to fit four light vehicles.
         The ship’s main vehicle bay occupies most of the second deck. At the end is a ramp that, when lowered, leads down to the bottom deck, but blocks any access to the lower vehicle bay. The second deck also house the ship’s forward weapons bay and ammunition storage.
         The middle deck contains most of the ship’s personnel and mess facilities, med bay, food storage, and personal equipment storage. The deck’s aft section houses the lower half of the ship’s engine core.
         The fourth deck contains the DropShip’s engineering central center, avionics, computers, communications electronics, batteries, and the upper half of the forward weapons bays. Also located on this deck is a well-equipped tactical operations center for use in the coordinating ground unit movement and combat. The back of the deck is taken up by the upper half of the engine core.
         The fifth deck houses the bridge, deep-space tracking radar, waste processing, equipment storage, ship’s laundry, and fire-control systems. The back portion of the deck houses the power plant. Located at the far aft end is a rear-firing weapons bay that can be accessed only through the engine compartment.
         The Triumph has three large bays to house the personnel of the armor companies. Each bay is long and narrow, with twelve double-high bunks lining each wall. Between each set of bunks is a large personal gear locker. At one end of the bay is a washroom that the entire company shares. At the opposite end is the main entrance, next to which is a door leading into the CO’s room. The unit commander and the First Sergeant share this room, which contains one double bunk, a fold-down wash basin, and a pair of fold-down tables and benches.
         The ship’s crew is housed in double-occupancy quarters located on the deck above the troop deck. The crew also has a separate mess and their own recreation facilities.
         The Triumph’s mission is to land in a pre-established landing zone and then deliver its battalions of tanks. Though the ship was not designed to enter contested territory, it has been called upon more than once to deploy reinforcements into the middle of a battle zone.
         The Triumph is a demoralizing sight to enemy units. Though its passengers and cargo are not MechWarriors and BattleMechs, an armor battalion usually makes up for it in numbers.
         Sadly, BBP Industries of Luthien designed an upgraded version of the Triumph that improved both its armaments and its cargo-carrying capabilities. Unfortunately, all known upgraded models were destroyed during the Jihad and BBP Industries lost its records of the design when Luthien was attacked by the Word of Blake. They have never been able to secure the resources to reinvent the upgraded design, and Kallon Industries of Capella has been unwilling to spend the great amounts of money it would take to upgrade a simple vehicle and infantry carrier. The upgraded Triumph is simply one more item added to the list of things lost due to the Word's treachery.
