The Colonial Shuttle is a large, twin-engined cargo craft. The shuttle is unarmed, but is capable of carrying a landram (or snowram) and cargo in addition to a crew compliment.

Shuttles are equipped with a loading ramp that allows for rapid deployment of the stowed vehicle (The Gun on Ice Planet Zero). Shuttles can also be used for deploying parachute troops, dropping out of the shuttle from a special chamber (The Living Legend, Part II).

In the hours after the Cylon attack on the Colonies, shuttles of this type ferried survivors from ships in the Ragtag fleet to Galactica for medical treatment (Saga of a Star World). While the cockpit has seating for two pilots, the rear compartment has ample room for large numbers of civilian passengers.
