Technology & Combat Characteristics
The VTOL Seaplane is a multi-purpose transport helicopter used for transporting personnel and light cargo, search and rescue, patrolling and other purposes. It has two large rotors, and four axuiliary nozzles for propulsion and take-off/landing. It is equipped with floats to enable it to land on water as well as on solid ground. This amphibious capability is a necessary requirement, since ZAFT based its naval strength primarily on submarines.
