Bio:

The Confederate-class military DropShip was once the standard Lance transport of the Star League Defense Force. Resembling a scaled down Union, it was launched in 2602 by Kong Interstellar and served with the SLDF up to the Amaris Civil War. Many Confederates took part in the Aleksandr Kerensky's Exodus, although some stayed behind to serve with the remaining Inner Sphere militaries. However, the technological decline of the Succession Wars meant maintaining the Confederate's advanced technology difficult, and by 3057 only two were still in service in the Inner Sphere. While initially mothballed upon their arrival at the Pentagon Worlds, Kerensky's Clans would reactivate their surviving Confederates for the Clan Invasion.

The Confederate used one of the most advanced engine designs of the Star League era, its Thordan 650X engine taking up twenty percent less room and weighing ten percent less than its predecessors. This also makes living conditions on a Confederate less cramped than a comparable DropShip, and allows its cargo bays more versatility in carrying either BattleMechs, Aerospace Fighters or a combination of both, along with general cargo.
