The Scabbard is the Terran TP-class ship. It is the most heavily shielded TP, as well as one of the fastest, but suffers from a lack of cargo space. It is an ideal ship for delivering marines to a target.


The Scabbard transport is mainly used in the transfer of personnel between USC facilities and ships.

Physical Characteristics[edit]

The Scabbard resembles the TS-class Baldric. It features a rectangular primary hull and sloping, wedge-shaped prow. In addition, it has an elliptical dome atop the dorsal surface, and a pair of large tailfins astern. Like all Terran ships, it is white with red trim.


The Scabbard has good survivability, even better than many heavy fighters, but does not pack an offensive punch and relies on other ships to cover it in a fight.


The Scabbard can mount a single electro-magnetic plasma cannon and Poltergeist missiles.


Two Scabbards, each with a full complement of marines, are granted by the Terran authorities in the course of their mission line.

Scabbards may also be purchased at most Terran shipyards.

Suggested Roles[edit]

The obvious use for a Scabbard is in completing Transport Passenger and Transport Passengers missions. Due to its speed, it is also useful in boarding actions.
