Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Clone Wars Campaign Guide
The Techno Union contributed nearly three hundred of their Hardcell-Class Transports to the Separatist cause before the Clone Wars began. After losing hundreds of them at the Battle of Geonosis, the Techno Union supplied the Confederacy with another thousand. Although sturdy, the Hardcell-Class vessel uses a cluster of primary thruster engines, rather than the conventional repulsorlift engines found on most Starships- partly because thrusters outperform repulsorlifts in acceleration, and partly because the Skakoans have three fuel-rich moons in their home system.
The crew cabins of the Hardcell-Class Transport (Located in the uppermost portion of the ship's nose cone) are designed for Skakoan habitation. Skakoans can forego their Skakoan Pressure Suits in the crew cabins, but other Species require either Flight Suits or Space Suits to survive.
Although heavily armored, the Hardcell-Class Transport is only lightly armed, and vulnerable to well-placed shots. A Critical Hit against a Hardcell-Class Transport deals triple damage, rather than double damage.
