The DR-4 Viking is a dropship that was used by the Fleet of the United Citizen Federation for transportation of Mobile Infantry troops. These ships have been used in missions during the conflicts with the Arachnids during the First Bug War.

The Federation uses Vikings to move troopers from capital ships in orbit to a planet's surface and back. The standard dropship is capable of transporting up to 40 Mobile Infantry troopers for quick entry in battle. For rapid retrieval, the Fleet uses its own dropship which is smaller and faster than the Mobile Infantry's dropships.

NotesEdit

  • Director Paul Verhoeven mentioned that the ships were inspired by the landing crafts used in the Normandy assault. Indeed, the ships can be seen opening up at the landing as ramps like the Higgins boats in Normandy.
  • Viking Dropships have been shown being deployed from Corvette Transports, and Athena class Starships only with later Starship models lacking the distinctive hangar bays used for the DR-4 Viking.
