It looks suspiciously like a Firefly-class transport.

The most non-aerodynamic vehicle I've seen in any game, but I love it so much! I wonder if those spawn tubes will work in the air? It would be cool to have a endless stream of hot drops from a galaxy circling over a base.

@laelgon
it would be very cool indeed, but also kind of unbalanced.

If you read the linked reveal, it clearly states that the respawn tubes and equipment terminals are only usable when the Galaxy is on the ground and "deployed." :/

Still very cool though; some of my favorite memories from Planetside revolve around Galaxies... :)

@Scratches

If the game functions much like the original though, this flying respawn point will be a godsend to behind the lines teams like mine used to focus on.

Drop the squad off over a target techplant, fly the Galaxy somewhere nearby but out of sight and deploy it to serve as a respawn point. When the enemy eventually manages to kick the squad out of their base, they can all respawn at the Galaxy, mount up and fly to the next target. No more tedious returns to Sanctuary.

Oh, I agree, it's still incredibly useful... just not as cool as respawning mid-flight and dropping into the action again. :)

I loved being a Galaxy pilot in the first game. I had some of my most memorable moments playing planetside.

Nothing like taking a fully loaded galaxy into a hot zone at steep trajectory from a high altitude to pull back on the stick at the last 50 meters and having all your troops drop in on the actions then hit the afterburners to make a get away.

Man that was awesome!

Where are my apples.... I want more apples. Once I get them I'll inform you on how well I enjoy them.

Any who, thanks for the PS 2 updates Jef, always enjoy looking into these.

Hope it can turn invisible like the AMS.

Suicide divebombing with the Galaxy was always fond memories.

I plan on being a dedicated Galaxy pilot when the game launches.
