The largest of MandalMotors line of space combat vessels, the M22-T Krayt Gunship, true to its namesake, the Krayt Dragon, was a behemoth on the battlefield. Though, it had a small crew of only two, a pilot and a gunner, it could still lay down an impressive amount of firepower. Obviously slower than its counterparts, such as the Scyk and Dunelizard, it nonetheless, like other MandalMotors designs, was well-recieved.
Over time, the Hutt crime organization established itself as the dominant mercenary faction in known space. To maintain loyalty, Jabba the Hutt commissioned the M22-T Krayt Gunship from MandalMotors as a gift for his most powerful lieutenants. Jabba's under-bosses in remote systems represent a consistent risk to the Hutt empire - they often fight amongst themselves and contemplate large-scale mutinies. With this vessel, his remote commanders could afford to release, fire or kill vast swaths of employees while remaining profitable.
New Mandalorian CrusadeEdit
After Mandalore Cadden Blackthorne reunified the Mandalorian Clans, he ordered MandalMotors to begin to produce new Krayt-class Gunships in moderation, to serve as commanders' vessels in battle. The most notable Krayt in the Mandalorian Protectors' ranks is the Final Ceremony, piloted by Kyr Aden.
