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 carriers. The ships were reportedly shaped to resemble the faces of the original Taungs.
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.
Its exclusive use by the Mandalorians earned it the name Mandalorian Drop Ship. It appeared based on similarly-designed dropships used by the Neo-Crusaders during the Mandalorian Wars.
After the Mandalorian Civil War disrupted MandalMotors, the Meteor-class was replaced by the Kuat Drive Yards Amphibious Interstellar Assault Transport/infantry.
In the final days of the Yuuzhan Vong War in 29 ABY, Boba Fett led a Mandalorian taskforce to reclaim the Yuuzhan Vong-held world of Gyndine. The force used Meteor-class ships to transport soldiers to the planet's surface and were able to liberate the planet.
