Terran Dropship

Description Edit

The Dropship is Terran's Air transport. Has the fastest default movement speed among transport units and it can be upgraded to use the Ignite Afterburner ability to double it for a short period, becoming the fastest unit in the game. Dropships are the most expensive transport units in the game, costing a lot of Gas, while the other transport units only cost minerals.

Can pick up Siege Tanks in Siege Mode by default. Siege Tanks picked by Dropships are transformed into Tank Mode.

As with other transport units it's important to keep them moving (dancing) because they have a slow acceleration, even though this can be somewhat mitigated by using Ignite Afterburners.
