The T-47 is designed for low atmospheric flight, powered by a pair of repulsorlift drive units and high-powered afterburners. It also sports brake flaps for easier turning. The T-47 can reach speeds of up to 1000 km/h, with an effective combat speed of 600 km/h. Widely used in a cargo transport role, all T-47s come with a magnetic tow-cable, fired from the back of the craft by the crewman in the rear-facing gunner position.
