Capsule: Shuttles are small ships which ferry passengers or cargo between capital ships, space docks, and planets. They usually do not have hyperdrive engines, although some Imperial models do. Most have only light armaments and are clearly not intended for combat.

One particular type of shuttle in common usage, and integral to the Battle of Endor, is the Imperial Lambda class shuttle. This Imperial shuttle can carry a twenty man squad of soldiers and their supplies, or the equivalent in other mass. The shuttle is easily identified by its inverted Y shape, formed by three extended wings during flight. The two lower wings fold upward for landing.

The sleek cockpit has a bottom hatch which drops down to discharge personnel and cargo. It has a hyperdrive engine, as well as sublight and repulsorlift drives. The Imperial shuttle is also more heavily armed than most, with five weapon emplacements and room for more.

Though these vehicles are still primarily used by the Empire, the New Republic does have a number of captured Imperial shuttles in service, especially in Imperial City. The ships are normally used to ferry important ambassadors, although they have been pressed into hauling small, but important cargoes.
