The Gryphon class of light assault vessels straddle the line between transport starships and small craft. They carry one Lance of Tech Infantry troopers (two platoons, or about 50 soldiers) and a pair of AT-14 Skyranger assault pinnaces to land them on a planet. However, the Gryphons are also capable of landing themselves, at least on planets with relatively thin atmospheres. Gryphons may be too large to fit into most shuttlebays, but they are frequently carried by Star Control Ships. In prolonged campaigns against Bug-infested worlds such as Fieras VI, they may be stationed semi-permanently at a battlestation in orbit, to drop off and pick up small detachments of troops at trouble spots planet-wide. Ships in this class are named for mythical beasts (and some that are non-mythical in the TI universe).

Behind the Scenes[edit | edit source]

This class was designed by Nathan Bax, with details filled in by Martin Hohner. It was apparently one of the first ships designed for the game back in first or second season.
