Armed Transports were the strongest ships/carriers in the original Ratchet & Clank game. In most cases, they were used solely to transport the Blarg Elite Guards. After releasing the guards, they would sometimes remain stationary to attack Ratchet with large missiles when he got within a specific range. These transports were sighted on both Kalebo III and planet Veldin.
When they did remain stationary, the armed transports fired a fusion energy ball with massive power and tracking capabilities. The most effective way to defeat them was from afar with either the Devastator or Visibomb Gun. The Visibomb Gun had a much greater effect against these ships, as it would only take one rocket to defeat them.
