The Invader Assault Transport, XS-16 by SSIA designation is a heavily armed and armored amphibious vehicle transport.

Originally unarmed and designed to carry its occupants to the surface of a planet, launched from a sort of "mother ship", like Inflatable Boats from an Aircraft Carrier, the XS-16 Assault Transport was weaponized shortly after the beginning of the Main War, when the Invaders found out the hard way that a destroyed transport of the XS-16's size leaves no survivors. Bold SSIA counter-attacks and ambushes knocked out transport after transport.

The change was simple. Attach a powerful directed energy laser system, affectionately called the "Deathray" by SSIA troops and a special modular transport compartment known as the AIOCS, or Advanced Integrated Occupant Combat System. With these changes, Invader troops soon found themselves wiping out large SSIA formations without having to engage in actual combat- SSIA commanders would simply commit more and more forces without realizing just how futile the attacks were. As a result of this, the Invaders began using XS-16s in attacks, exploiting their huge size, massive firepower and amphibious capabilities to deal with heavily armored threats, like SSIA's commandeered museum ships and their more threatening Juggernaut Tanks. XS-16s can carry up to 12 soldiers and 2 to 4 vehicles; most infantry and some vehicles can fire out of the transport to bolster the ship's firepower.

--The Assault Transport is an extremely deadly vessel on its own, capable of engaging most surface vessels, armored vehicles and base defenses and coming out on top- but if that wasn't enough, infantry and vehicles inside can add to this firepower and shore up weaknesses, like a lack of AA defense.
--The mobility of the XS-16 is generally not worth noting- but it is faster than both the SSIA and EDF's best counters.
--XS-16s are armored enough to withstand most kinetic energy weapons, but lack ablative plating and are, like most ships, extremely vulnerable to being bombarded from above- a single salvo of artillery fire can spell doom for an XS-16 and all of its cargo.
