Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Rebellion Era Campaign Guide
The F9-TZ Transport is a light troop transport that excels at the clandestine insertion of troops into a battle zone. The F9-TZ features a Cloaking Device that shields the Vehicle from both visual and sensor detection. However, the Cloaking Device requires considerable power, preventing the transport from using its Cloaking Device and shields at the same time. The Cloaking Device can be engaged for only a limited time before requiring a recharge. The F9-TZ depends on its escorts for defense, since it carries no weaponry of its own. It can transport up to four squads of infantry but is unable to carry Vehicles. The cloaking technology makes the price for this transport exceedingly high. The cloaking projectors are integrated into the Vehicle's hull and cannot be installed on another Vehicle without a complete redesign.
