DESCRIPTION
The Kom'rk Class Fighter/Transport, also known as the Gauntlet Starfighter is a troop transport and fighter ship designed and consistently manufactured by MandalMotors. The ship is equipped with two forward facing laser cannons situated on the nose and is also equipped with two rear facing laser cannons. The ship's wings are able to alternate between a upright landing position when grounded an a horizontal position when in flight. Whilst in flight the wings can also rotate around the ship. There is a troop bay in the main section of the ship, this section has a hatch on it which allows the quick deployment of jetpacked troops into combat.

The crew sits in the cockpit which is situated towards the middle of the ship. To the rear is the troop bay and main section of the ship. This part is spacious and has 24 seats for the 24 passenger soldiers it can hold. The ship was not manufactured with liveability in mind. This is due to it's purpose as troop transport. Although a more than able crew could modify the ship to accommodate living space. Due to it's lack of Living space the ship is thus not recommended for personal use and ownership. It's best making up some part of a navy. There is also no cargo hold on the ship, the only 'cargo' it could hold would be troops and their equipment.

The primary use of this ship is to transport troops. The ship also acts as a fighter and is quite manoeuvrable, although is not as manoeuvrable as other starfighters. This class of ship saw use by Mandalorian groups such as Death Watch who used it to deploy troops into battle. These ships even saw use in the battle of Exegol against the Sith Eternal. The ships ability to deploy troops quickly and it's more than able position as a star fighter has made it a suitable and reliable choice for both troop transport and air combat. It's dual purpose allows factions to dedicate it's money elsewhere without worrying about a lack of transport or fighters for their military.

Whilst it is a strong ship it does have some limitations. As it's not primarily focussed on being a Star Fighter the ship does lack in this department. It's laser cannons whilst sufficient at destroying other ships could very well be overpowered by a more agile and well equipped ship. Furthermore, the ship has 2 'blind spots' so-to-speak where it can't fire, this being on either side of the ship. Due to it only being able to fire at the front and back a faster, a more agile ship could easily hit it from either side and the ship would be defenceless. This ship is also slower than most starfighters and thus could be outmatched by other, quicker starfighters.

LEGALITY
Restricted. As a starfighter this ship is restricted and is subject to extra licensing and scrutiny by authorities.

INTENT
The purpose of this ship is to provide a ship whose focal point is the Mandalorian culture. Furthermore, this ship will primarily be used by Mandalorian factions as one of their troop transports and core fighter ships. As such the primary users of this ship will be the New Mandalorian Protectors who will eventually use this ship in battle etc.

No escape pods or even ejector seats? Don't forget to mention it has class 10 backup hyperdrive in canon. The four types of maneuverability used on the site are sluggish, average, decent and excellent. It probably falls under dropship/pinnace in terms of class rather than the specific model of the ship.

Thank you for the feedback. I made the changes you've suggested. I hope you don't mind but I took the liberty of making it faster, after looking at other entries I realised that this ship would only be as fast as a star destroyer which seemed a little bit too slow for a ship of this role. I made it faster by 15MGLT so it could compete with other starfighters. I also changed the cargo capacity to make a bit more sense, 25 tons seemed a little too much for a troop transport.

This looks fine to me, but could you also un-center the text underneath the Description, Legality and Intent headers?
