The Low Altitude Troop Transport Unit, or more commonly called the LATTU for short, is a small military transport airship. It can hold a capacity of 20 Soldiers for the biggest models, plus three Pilots. (One to navigate and two to man the two side turrets) They're Slightly smaller than a MEAP and can go at a maximum of 110 Miles per hour.
The LATTU was introduced the same time the RDA Trooper was in 2010. Kaiser Swiss Ninja was the one who came up with the idea and design of the aircraft, and mass production for the new clone army began.
The LATTU's Basic function is to transport Troops and Supplies to their destination. It can also be an assault unit since it has two side cannons that where originally made for Self Defense. It has two large moving doors on both sides that can be raised up by the pilot, and make boarding and leaving the aircraft more efficient. For Landing, most of them use landing gears, but some can use hovercraft technology. It also can have a minimum crew of 1 Penguin, and the Maximum of 3 for manning the side cannons. The Transport can carry a capacity of about 20 Soldiers, with Five in each row. In the Cabin, there is no seats since they are also used for cargo and soldiers must usually stand, and the only support could be from cargo crates or from the handles on the giant moving side doors. The back of the cabin also has a large Snoss-issued radio that is used for communication with other RDA troops and Snoss regular troops; the radio in the cockpit area only uses air traffic frequencies.
