One of the few transport ships mass-produced for the Sith Empire during the Jedi Civil War, the 28-meter-long Herald-Class Shuttle is originally based on a design by a Republic Fleet Systems design that was produced in limited quantities but eventually supplanted by the Ministry-Class Orbital Shuttle and the KT-400 Military Droid Carrier. This vessel is actually a multipurpose craft, allowing it to function either as a shuttlecraft for transporting powerful Sith or as a cargo vessel, used to haul valuable goods like Kolto. Those vessels used as transport craft are usually outfitted with a Luxury Upgrade and serve as the personnel shuttlecraft of Sith Lords and wealthy nobles loyal to the Sith Empire.
