Notes: The Winters class drop transports are the largest drop transports in Commonwealth service. Each is capable of landing and supporting an entire battalion of Mobile Infantry. The jump capsule launchers can fire 1 jump capsule every 30 seconds, so the entire force can be deployed in about 7 minutes.

Troops descend in high survivability capsules, which are well armored and contain numerous decoys and other penetration aids. Typically, only dedicated point defense systems have any chance of detecting and engaging them. The Winters class ships also provide fire support with their missile batteries. The 350 basic capsules are used to transport supplies and disposable MRL launchers.

The ship's boats and dropships are used for retrieval and deployment if the surface is already controlled. Each can retrieve 39 troops.
