The Light Assault Transport Carrier was a small type of Zentraedi craft that was used in commando operations or reconnaissance missions by the Imperial Zentraedi Forces. They were able to carry a platoon of Powersuits into the battlefield along with Battlepods. In addition, the Carrier was armed with an array of weapons at the front of the craft. They were also, seemingly, capable of space fold operations.
One of the new Light Assault Transport Carriers were present within Breetai's forces during the First Robotech War. After the discovery of the Human Research Base Gibraltar, both Breetai and Exedore agreed to a recon mission of the site. Thus, they decided to dispatch Major Calen and a platoon of Powersuits onboard these Transport Carriers. However, Calen instead engaged the Robotech Defense Force at the site as he intended to gain glory by achieving victory over their foes.
The Carrier was present in the battle and later attempted to destroy the transport shuttle Mythos XFC 3 with its forward weapons. However, the detonation of Gibraltar's fusion reactor caused a catastrophic explosion which destroyed all the Zentraedi present on the scene which included the Transport Carrier.
