When a low profile is an absolute necessity this is the craft of choice. This tiny craft is capable of carrying a small team great distances unnoticed. The Shard-2 is the Shard remade using the latest technology for better performance, better sensors and an even small sensor signature.
Capable of covertly putting a team down on an occupied world the Shard is the craft of choice for advanced scout teams and black ops strike teams. With 3G drive and stealth, it can be deployed in the out-system and rapidly make its own way in to the target world undetected. With 6 bunks the craft can perform as a temporary base of operations. The small hold provides enough space to carry grav bikes, weapons, provisions and other essential equipment.
