(*) Terran designation. The Tirolian designers considered the sensors part of the design and did not assign separate designations for these systems.

VIII. Armor:

The hull of the Liewneuatzs shuttle could resist repeated re-entries into an atmosphere. The Liewneuatzs did not mount any armor as such.

IX. Development:

The Liewneuatzs shuttle was used by the Zentraedi forces to transfer cargo and personnel between near-by ships and bases. The Liewneuatzs was capable of descending to and ascending from a planetary surface. The shuttles also saw use as high speed couriers due to their speed and maneuverability.

The shuttle was of very simple construction. The main hull was rectangular, with four main engines in the back, two more engines underneath the hull in the sponsons. Two more engines, used almost exclusively for orbital ascends, were placed in the upper rear of the shuttle. Numerous attitude and maneuvering thrusters were located over the hull of the craft, with two main braking engines in the extreme nose. Five reaction mass tanks were mounted partially externally on the rear half of the hull. The propulsion installation also included an anti-gravity pods, making the Liewneuatzs capable of unlimited hovering and slow ascends without using significant quantities of reaction mass.
