Background: The platoon attack craft, also known as the Trade Federation troop carrier, was a repulsorcraft personnel carrier used by the Trade Federation to transport B1-series battle droids.

An unarmed variant of the Multi-Troop Transport, or MTT, the platoon attack craft boasted no weaponry or heavy armor and had to rely on Armored Assault Tanks and battle droids for protection. It was deployed behind the protection of ground armor in secure conditions, or within occupied territory. Although the MTTs offered greater protection, the troop carrier was faster and more agile, and many were still retained in the Trade Federation Droid Army.

The troop carrier was a repulsorcraft piloted by two OOM pilot battle droids. Similar to the deployment racks used in MTTs, the troop carrier’s single rack could carry 112 droids, folded into their smaller configuration.
