Official Entry: "Heavy transportation is mainly undertaken by these heavy duty air transports. Manufactured goods are transported entirely by air, given the unreliability and dangers of road transport in the deregulated areas, or slums. The Airtrans is a computer controlled craft, but must be manned by law according to the inter-personal contact ordinances."
Fully automated, all manner of goods are hauled around by airborne transport vehicles to avoid the hazards of road travel through less lawful districts.
These vehicles will be used to ferry any equipment purchase/transfer made by X-COM to its intended base if Transtellar doesn't consider X-COM as hostile.
In X-COM Service
The Airtrans could see useful early-game service if unlocked for purchase via a savegame editor. It has a fast top speed, albeit lumbering acceleration due to its weight. This is a transport, not a hot rod, and should be deployed accordingly.
It should only be used for transport missions, where it makes an extremely cheap alternative to the Valkyrie, but its lack of armour and non-combat role means it will be swatted from the sky by any hostile unit in range. It should therefore be considered a roleplay vehicle and should not be deployed to an area where someone might take a pot-shot at it.
The Airtrans is greatly superior to the road-bound Autotrans, but is priced accordingly.
