Eighty Low Altitude Assault Transports, of which around 66 were infantry gunships and around 14 were vehicle carriers, were carried to insert personnel, vehicles, and cargo into battle zones in addition to providing close air support.
Gunships were suspended along an overhead circulating rail in the upper hangar for maintenance procedures during travels.
Fusion rockets fired by enemy forces barely made a scratch on the hull as a result.
A lower, smaller hangar area was used to embark and disembark ground troops and material via a large ramp when landed.
The two levels were connected with elevator platforms.
The Acclamator-class assault ship, alternatively referred to as the Acclamator-class trans-galactic military transport ship or Acclamator-class transgalactic military assault ship, or by the shorter names Acclamator-class transport, Acclamator-class troopship, or the rarer Acclamator I transport, was an assault-class capital ship created for the Galactic Republic by Rothana Heavy Engineering. Its mission profile required it to both carry troops and engage enemy starships: the Acclamator was designed to assault contested systems, break hostile orbital blockades, and land troops directly on the battlefield.
Consequently, the Acclamator favored a wedge or dagger shaped design due to its effectiveness—it allowed concentration of firepower while minimizing target profile.
This tower module was a standard design for smaller ships in Kuat Drive Yards's starship catalog, which Rothana supplied vessels to.
This basic design was used in a number of larger craft pre-dating it and would define Imperial ships for decades to come.
The bridge was located in the middle of an arrow-shaped command tower module that protruded from the dorsal superstructure.
They also carried eighty aircraft and eighty-four armored vehicles, such as the AT-TE and SPHA walkers, used to provide clone troopers with heavy battlefield support.
Each Acclamator-class ship held 320 speeder bikes, used by clone troopers for fast battlefield reconnaissance and patrol duties.
These ships were armed with 4 heavy torpedo launch tubes; 24 point-defense cannons, rated at 6 megatons per shot; and 12 quad turbolaser turrets, each rated at a maximum of 200 gigatons per shot.
The hull armor of Acclamator-class vessels was impregnated with ultra-dispersive neutronium that withstood and spread massive energy blasts.
