Heavy Transport

Heavy Transports are the large trader galleons and ore carracks that are much larger than "normal" Imperial Transports and approach the size of a cruiser. They are most often seen plying the shipping lanes of Segmentum Solar or accompanying exploring Rogue Trader fleets. Despite their size allowing them to carry more weaponry than their smaller cousins, Heavy Transports remain poorly-armed and far more vulnerable than a dedicated warship.[1]

Heavy Transports play an important role in the Adeptus Mechanicus, being used to transport the Titan-class war machines of the Collegia Titanica.[2]
