The one''s that seem most generic to me are: Dropship, Lander.

What are the names of your other ships? Is there a common theme?

PDV? Planetside Deployment Vehicle?

Those are good names, I''d use both though, no army would use Charon, they''d think it was demoralizing. Have the army refer to it as the lander or by numbers and the grunts refer to it as charon. Just a thought.

Just an addendum: no real grunt is going to use a term as brainy as "Charon". More likely they''d call it the Hearse, the Flying Coffin, or something more esoteric like Typhoid Mary.

That could be good too, I''ve always been of the mind that in the future people will generall get smarter (calculus in 3rd grade). But I suppose if it''s a war torn world they wouldn''t have time for much else.

It''d probably be better to give it some complex name that has nice initials, like a Rocket Propelled Grenade is an RPG. Or, if thats not a possibility, assign it some morale'' provoking name like "Stinger" which is a SAM, Surface to Air Missile. As for things in the development stage, like secret weapons and the like, always give it a name made from on of those random name generators, like calling a satellite offensive weapon that being worked on by some contractor "ZFax." The unrelated name makes it less conspicuous. Sorry, but thats the way the US Military works. If you don''t like it, don''t attach the game to the US Military.
