The Sheathipede-class transport shuttle was a ship used by high-ranking Trade Federation members for transport to other planets. These shuttles were known to often have their cockpits replaced with automated pilots. Nute Gunray owned one of these shuttles, named the Lapiz Cutter, which was not outfitted with any weapons, but had strong deflector shields in place.
