The Dropship 79 Heavy-Troop Carrier (D79H-TC), more commonly known as the Pelican, is an extremely versatile aircraft capable of carrying troops, cargo, or vehicles, and sporting a heavy arsenal of weapons. This model of the Pelican has two nose-mounted machine guns operable by the pilot. The G79H-TC/MA Pelican is the gunship variant. The D79H-TC differs quite extremely from its predecessor, the D77H-TCI. Overall, its design is more rounded and streamlined, moving away from the very angular design of the D77 series. The cockpit is no longer accessed through the troop bay, but rather through the windshield itself, which opens to allow pilots to board. It is used by the Alliance of Nations (notably the United Alliances of Orion Species)
