Designed and produced by MandalMotors, the Meteor-class acted as a drop ship capable of delivering Mandalorian soldiers quickly to the surface from the hangars of Mandalorian Dungeon Ships. The ships were reportedly shaped to resemble the faces of the primitive Mandalorians. In addition to heavy hull plating, the ship was protected with a twin blaster cannon on each side of the fuselage. Upon landing, four landing gear deployed capable of absorbing the shock of high-speed landings.
After the Mandalorian Civil War disrupted MandalMotors, the Meteor-class was replaced by the Kuat Drive Yards AIAT/i. However, in recent times, the Meteor-class Q-Carrier has made a comeback, as it regained popularity amongst the new breed of Mandalorian Protectors, whom stemmed from Mandalore Cadden Blackthorne's tutelage.
