Brief History of the Crim III
Nicknamed the "Igloos," because of their circular design. The circular design was part of an innovative technology move to increase the ability of the craft to reflect small-laser fire while maintaining a decent mass to maintain speed. While the Igloos look somewhat comic, they have a serious role to play. It is the vehicule of choice for the Legionnaires to dispatch reinforcements along hot front-lines. The hull of these crafts are rumored to be able to take a point-blank 100 megawatt discharge and still survive the trip back to the main base.

Various Information
Heavily protected by a new armour type - the Igloo were certainly revolutionary pieces of equipement in their time, although most military forces have largely caught up with advances made by the Igloo and have also improved their functionalities. The Igloo has been battle-tested in various peacekeeping missions, the Rosebourg Monarchy's Legionnaires finding that while the Igloos weren't extraordinary in the service they provided, they certain did their job of getting troops safely into the front lines.
