From Age of Rebellion

The T-4a is a common utility shuttle in service with the Imperial Navy. Slow, sturdy, and reliable, these armed shuttles fill a number of roles from VIP transport to troop carrier and can carry immense amounts of cargo when correctly configured. They feature a modular interior that can be tailored to nearly any need and are considered the workhorse of the Imperial fleet. Lambda-class shuttles are also remarkably heavily-armed and armored for shuttlecraft, featuring numerous laser and blaster weapon emplacements, and their shields would do credit to a light cruiser. Thanks to their solid design and versatility, these ships are often the target of ship thieves. Some modified versions even serve in the Alliance fleet as landing craft and long range reconnaissance ships.

From Edge of the Empire

A common utility shuttle used by the Imperial Navy, Sienar Fleet Systems’ Lambda-class shuttles are a common sight at Imperial installations. Slow and sturdy, these shuttles were designed to haul both passengers and cargo, and can be configured as troop carriers, heavy cargo shuttles, and even luxury VIP transports. Lambda-class shuttles have a heavily armored square hull with a single tall vertical stabilizer mounted to the dorsal part of the main hull. Two additional folding wings with an inverted gull wing design help stabilize the vessel.

Lambda-class shuttles are driven by two SFS-204 ion engines with an SFS S/ig-37 hyperdrive providing long-range capabilities. Incredibly well-armed for a shuttle, they are equipped with a number of laser and blaster cannons in both forward and aft hard points that give the ship good fire coverage. Instead of standard escape pods, the entire forward bridge section detaches from the hull as a lifeboat in case of emergency. Incredibly useful and surprisingly versatile for a military design, these ships are often the target of ship thieves and pirates and can, on occasion, be purchased at staggering cost from the black market.
