Invasion of Laguna 9
Four GDT C55 Basilisk troop transports seen here on their approach to Laguna 9 during the first invasion of Laguna 9. Twenty-four C55's formed the basis for the troop transport and heavy armour deployment of the Terran forces during the obortive first invasion of the Laguna system and many were lost due to the enemy disorientation device. Older C55's were recalled from various parts of the Terran Federation to form part of the mothball fleet formed by Bernd Gerling. A popular ship, they could carry 1200 troops or carry forty-six main battle tanks or armoured vehicles with their flight of AAT183 Scorpion drop ships. After heavy losses in the main battle fleet, C55's were forced with many other non-combat ships into the front line with their limited armament in an attempt to stop the Lagunan city-ships.
