The TSL-3 is the latest generation of Tolesian shuttle that supersedes the TSL-2 transport design. With two powerful ETL-3 combined cycle engines producing 205,000Nm of thrust each, this shuttle is capable of parabolic or orbital capabilities. Compared to its capable predecessor, the TSL 2 is simpler and cheaper to manufacture and maintain at the expense of integrated FTL capability. To remedy this, designers developed a mission extension package which fits around the shuttle that handles deep space survival.


The tradeoff allows the loading of two fully combat-capable tanks or equivalent equipment to be airdropped on the battlefield. This shuttle's initial deployments have demonstrated the ruggedness of the design, with shuttles ferrying crews home missing various components missing.
