sgu97cab - Back before the Guard Reserve the Empire Imperial Dropship Transport (IDT) and the Rebel Low Altitude Assault Transport (LAAT) could be used to "trip" a buried SC, but since the introduction of the Guard Reserve even that "capability", which still exists, is no longer effective (if it ever was).
OK, thanks DS. I guess I wont be worry about researching them up then, and only use them if I need to achieve daily objectives.
Whatever you do, don't upgrade it past the max level where it has the minimum cook time (21 minutes, I think, and level 4 or 5). On windows, I made the mistake of leveling it up to 9. The cook time is stupid long, and that made doing IDT crates impossible.
If you're using them to trip sc's, you want them to die fast, anyway. The one decent use is in war with Dando (no tako or tat). They do have higher health than a regular storm, and you can drop them to occupy turrets and draw fire. They do lower damage than a regular storm as well, which makes them pretty useless as an attack force. No matter what the description says, NO ONE fears these things, lol.
