Background: The Multi-Troop Transport (MTT) was a heavily armored repulsorlift transport vehicle manufactured by Baktoid Armor Workshop and used by both the Trade Federation during their Invasion of Naboo and later the Confederacy of Independent Systems to transport B1-series battle droids before and during the Clone Wars. During the Clone Wars, it was used to transport B2-series super battle droids.
Manufactured by Baktoid Armor Workshop for the Trade Federation and later the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the Multi-Troop Transport was a heavy, broad-shouldered, snub-nosed repulsorlift vehicle designed to transport battle droids into combat. Massive, lumbering, imposing vehicles, the 35.94 meter long and 10.45 meter tall MTT was considered a troop carrier, a tank, and a siege ram. It was difficult to stop at a maximum speed of thirty-one kilometers per hour, and when compared to the Armored Assault Tank also used by the Federation and Confederacy, it was extremely capable in its role.
With its hulking forward hull, sloping front end, and small aft hull, the MTT had a vaguely elephantine silhouette. A small armored cockpit was mounted atop the towering hull, directly above a large, thick, circular hatch, where two OOM pilot battle droids served as the vehicle’s operators. These two pilot droids directed the vehicle according to the instructions received from a Lucrehulk-class Battleship. One of the pilots would serve as an engineer and a gunner. Much of the interior was given over to the hydraulically-powered droid deployment rack, a long rotating assembly that carried a total of one hundred and twelve deactivated B1-series battle droids or twelve B2-series super battle droids. In order to deploy the droids, the MTT was required to cease movement, open the hatch, and extend the rack, where the droids were then quickly deployed and activated, creating an instant infantry formation.
For defensive purposes, the Multi-Troop Transport was armed with forward-mounted twin light blaster cannons, as well as forward-mounted twin heavy blaster cannons. They were additionally equipped with close-ranged sensors.
