The E-Frame Dropship, or Troop Carrier, are ships that typically possess long range capability, designed only to work in conjunction with shorter range E-Frames that are not equipped for deep space travel.
They are used mainly for long range covert E-frame operations. They are also capable of deploying E-Frames and equipment while maintaining supporting fire.
Though they remained in service throughout the Neosapien War, they were phased out by a new class of Light Exocarriers, such as the Arnhem, that were faster and carried a complement almost that of a Fleet Exocarrier.
The last significant mission assigned to an E-Frame Dropship, piloted by Lt. Sutton, was the suicide mission that Able Squad was sent on to destroy a suspected weapons complex on Mars by Captain Marcus.
