The Galaxy is a massive air transport vehicle. When the passengers and crew exit a Galaxy, they do not suffer from fall damage or carry the vehicle's momentum, making it possible to do top-down airdrops without having to land or even slow down. After dropping off the passengers, the pilot and some of the gunners sometimes stay behind to provide air support. The Galaxy uses 4 defense turrets, more than any other vehicle. By default, these are all the multipurpose M20 Drake. The two turrets on the top and tail of the Galaxy can be replaced with the A30 Walker Anti-Air turret, useful for fighting off enemy aircraft for which a Galaxy could be an easy target. The two turrets on the sides can be replaced with the M60-A Bulldog Anti-Infantry turret, useful for hitting targets too far below the Galaxy to accurately aim at.

Galaxies are spawned at their own special terminal. Two are found at each Warpgate and one is on the roof of every Tech Plant.

[edit] Useful knowledge

The Galaxy is able to collide with any air vehicle and usually destroy them, except other Galaxies, with little risk to them self. This makes kamikaze Galaxies unusually common.

The Galaxy is about as maneuverable as a beached whale, making it an easy target. However, it has so much health that it can take massive amounts of damage.

[edit] PlanetSide

The original Galaxy

In the original PlanetSide, the Galaxy was a large transport ship which could carry infantry, MAX units, and a light vehicle into battle.

In PlanetSide 2 Beta, the Galaxy could be used as a mobile spawn point, like the Sunderer, but that feature was removed and re-added in the January 30th, 2014 patch. Some point after that, it was removed again and at this moment isn't in the game.
