Dropships are lightly armored spacecraft used by the Space Pirates in Metroid Prime: Federation Force. When the Federation Force attacks the Pirate Warship in M16: Slipstream, Dropships are summoned to defend the ship, although their only attack is a side-mounted cannon. Due to their light armor, they are easy to destroy. It is similar to a Space Pirate ATC, apart from the armor shielding. Dropships are also present in M10: Black Hole. There are also 2 Elite Dropships, present in M16: Slipstream.
