Gone was most it's mammoth cargo capacity and slow thrust capacity. The refit resulted in fast and deadly assault dropship, with ability to reach speed of 12 where most ships half size rare achieve such acceleration. However, like it's original design, it is unable to safely to land on planets without great difficulties.

Using the what they materials on hand from it's rich asteroid fields, the Goliath's were fitted with 324.00 tons of Standard armor. Giving astonishing damage resistance to most threats could muster.
