The special ops dropship is Jim Raynor's dropship.

Game UnitEdit

The ship is marked with a DMW insignia. It uses the same portrait as the Banshee. Although it appears in many campaign missions to unload troops, it is never controllable nor buildable, though it is selectable.

The unit appears to have been based off the medivac dropship's design, with clear differences: a slightly redesigned body, two extra thrusters under the wings, longer wings, a different paint job, and skulls where the crosses on the medivac are.

HistoryEdit

Liberation DayEdit

On Mar Sara, the ship unloaded Commander Jim Raynor and five marines on the road to Backwater Station after ferrying them across a destroyed bridge.[1]

The EvacuationEdit

On Agria, the dropship deposited two firebats and two medics on the road to Larks' Crossing.[2]

Covert missionsEdit

Once Raynor's Raiders were finished mining minerals on Redstone III, the dropship evacuated six marines and two medics that were under attack by zerglings as a lava surge was imminent.[3]

Plot branch : Raynor's Raiders side with Nova against Tosh (B canon)

Once Nova Terra cleared a landing zone on Avernus Station, special ops dropships deployed Raynor's marines and medics there to assist in destroying the Jorium stockpile. They would later bring in reapers and siege tanks for use against the terrazine tank. This is the only mission in the entire campaign where two special ops dropships are seen.[4]

Rebellion missionsEdit

Chief Engineer Rory Swann used the special ops dropship to deliver a thor to Raynor's base on Korhal.[5]

The dropship later dropped Raynor, five marines and two medics on an orbital platform above Castanar. It also brought reinforcements for Raynor to use against the brutalisk.[6]

Artifact missionsEdit

Swann delivered four marauders to Raynor's base for use against Tal'darim stalkers on Monlyth via the dropship. He later used it to pick up the Keystone fragment.[7]

The ship dropped off a marauder, four marines and two medics on Xil. Swann then used it to bring in two siege tanks with which to destroy the Tal'darim photon cannons blocking their path to the Moebius Foundation base. It also played a role in the securing of the artifact.[8]

Two marauders and four marines were brought to the surface of Typhon XI by the dropship.[9]

Heart of the SwarmEdit

The ship was in the shuttle bay of Research Station EB-103 during Raynor's stay. At his insistence, Sarah Kerrigan used it to get off world.[10]

Kerrigan docked the dropship aboard the Hyperion. Finding that Raynor had been left behind, she returned to the ship and set out to find him.[11]

The dropship lands on Phaeton

Kerrigan landed the ship next to Broodmother Naktul's hive cluster on Phaeton. She returned to it once the Drakken pulse cannon was destroyed.[12]

In the cockpit, Kerrigan tried to contact Raynor as a broken-horned zergling came aboard. After seeing a Universal News Network broadcast where Kate Lockwell said that Raynor had been summarily executed, Kerrigan resolved to have her revenge on Emperor Arcturus Mengsk and took the ship to zerg space.[13]

The dropship landed inside Kerrigan's leviathan.[14]
