The ark shuttle is a type of protoss aerospace craft capable of travel through warp conduits. They are capable of operating within atmospheres and entering warp space. These craft are launched from docking bays.
During the initial Daelaam expedition to Kaldir, the colonists attempted to send shuttled through the planet's warp conduits to warn Shakuras of the reappearance of Sarah Kerrigan. However, Kerrigan was able to destroy the shuttles before they could escape the planet.
During the End War, Amon used Kaldir's warp conduits to ferry shuttles and troops across the Koprulu sector and destroy the warp network from within. Cartwright and allied commanders were dispatched to Kaldir, and were able to destroy the shuttles before they escaped.
Ark shuttles (simply called "shuttles" in-game) appear in the Heart of the Swarm mission "Shoot the Messenger." Kerrigan must prevent these shuttles from entering the warp conduits, lest Shakuras be alerted to her presence on Kaldir. These shuttles are usually escorted by friendly units.
Known Ark ShuttlesEdit
Map editor files refer to the ark shuttle as "frigate."
