[Future Perfect] Billygoat Imperial Dropship

The classic troop transport and dropship from the old Imperial fleet, it served with distinction for many years. Though it has been phased out of the Regency Fleet, and the Alliance has updated to the more modern Humpback, the Billygoat has found continued life among small, independent ship makers in the Freespace, the Frontier, and even corners of the Coalition (who have their own updated version of the Billygoat) where the serviceability and modularity of old Imperial designs makes these older vessels more cost effective to repair and retrofit than to replace. Indeed, the Billygoats still remains quite capable of its primary task - dropping several squads of Marines into a hot battlefield and leaving them with both cover and supplies enough to complete their mission objectives.
