Dalek Transport - Dalek Shuttlecraft

In Use By

Generations 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 08 and 09.

Overview

As with all space-faring races, the Daleks made use of a number of designs of small spacecraft to ferry high ranking members of the race, or small delegations from larger vessels to planetary surfaces. Dalek shuttlecraft were long range vessels that often carried reconnaissance patrols or spearheads for invasion. They were often escorted by a number of Trans-solar disc patrols.

While primarily utilised as a deployment vessel to get Dalek units from large battleships to planetary surfaces, the different designs of small scale Dalek shuttlecraft were fully capable of independent interstellar travel and could be utilised by small Dalek groups operating independantly of the main fleet in any given theatre of war. Like all Dalek vessels, the hull was armoured to withstand a great deal of punishment. Some models came equipped with deflector shields for additional defensive capability.

Shuttlecraft used by all generations except Davros' Imperial forces are generally designed in the manner of a disc or saucer shape, with the main drive units and thrusters being located at the bottom of the ship. Dalek Shuttles from the Third Generation were of a more boxy design, with the main cabin taking up the centre of the ship and four protruding modules which were fitted with a number of motivational units and thrusters.

Shuttlecraft could be outfitted for specific purposes - be this survey, infiltration or combat-unit delivery. While minimal for Dalek craft, the armaments on each shuttlecraft model were sufficient to fend off most assaults and to subdue enemy forces in a region.
