Unit Description:
      Designed as both a light troop transport, and a direct assault vessel, the Franda Releva is a seldom-seen design in the Zentraedi Fleet. Given the Zentraedi preference to completely obliterate their enemy, an assault transport typically holds little value. The Releva can carry carry up to four contingents of regular Zentraedi troops, or a squad of Zentraedi in Male Power Armour. Because of their larger size, there are few opponents that the Zentraedi can board in the first place, aside from perhaps the Invid. Typically they are most often used to either insert smaller Zentraedi teams onto the surface, or to sometimes re-capture Zentraedi vessels which are not following orders. There were plans to re-capture the SDF-1 using these small transports following a disabling of the vessel, however the plan was never fully put into action. A combination of well-executed defenses along with both confusion and dissent among the Zentraedi fleet contributed to the failure of the re-capture mission.
