- "If we can get to the transport before they land their troops, we stand a chance."
- —Col. David Telford
The troopship is similar in appearance to a Tel'tak but is far larger, surpassing even an Al'kesh in height. They are capable of carrying large numbers of Jaffa and deploying them onto the battlefield. It is unknown if the craft contains weapons or shields.
When Anubis traveled to Abydos to locate the Eye of Ra, he sent a squadron of Death Gliders to the surface along with a Troopship full of Jaffa. When the ship landed, Teal'c fired a FIM-92 Stinger missile at it but it had little effect. (SG1: "Full Circle") Anubis later sent a Troopship to P3X-439 in an effort to retrieve an Ancient Repository of knowledge. (SG1: "Lost City, Part 1")
