An older design used by the Jedi Knights, the T-6 shuttle was pressed into heavier service by the necessities of the Clone Wars. The half-circle shaped ship has a rotating body, allowing for flexibility of configurations when landing on planetary surfaces or docking with starships and stations. The Jedi primarily used the T-6 as a peacetime conveyance, hence it has no weapons. The ship's reliable hyperdrive and larger interior space meant that interstellar travel in a T-6 was far more comfortable than in a cramped Jedi starfighter. In case of emergency, the ship's crew could launch ejection seats that deploy spheroid survival capsules that not only contain vital atmospheric pressure, but also cushion impact.
