The Arvus Lighter is a utility shuttle designed to transport personnel and goods from a planet to a ship in orbit. It is slow, unwieldy, and unarmed, but very useful for transporting cargo or personnel, provided the Landing Zone is not hot.
As a spacecraft, this vehicle may exit the atmosphere. While in the atmosphere it may operate as a skimmer (i.e. hovercraft) or flyer at the pilot’s choice. If operating as a flyer, it must be moving at least half its cruising speed at all times lest it begin a terminal dive to the earth below. In either case, if it becomes completely immobilized due to damage, count the vehicle as destroyed instead as it crashes to the ground (or begins to fall out of the sky in a terminal dive).
