Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Galaxy at War
Drop Pods are used by military, and occasionally civilian, organizations to quickly deploy Vehicles into combat zones. Little more than a protective shell surrounding a Ground Vehicle, a Drop Pod launches from an orbiting ship and then flies directly to the designated drop zone. When the Drop Pod lands, self-destructive bolts blow the pod apart, freeing the Vehicle inside. The interior of the Drop Pod is pressurized and filled with atmosphere but has no extra accommodations for passengers. Instead, any passengers ride in the carried Vehicle. The Drop Pod's descent is controlled by a Droid Brain.
