The Torumekian Military Transport [1], also known colloquially as Bumblecrows, is a huge flying fortress/troop transport with two wings.

There is one non-retracting landing gear pylon attached to each wing. On each side of the fuselage at the base are non-retracting landing gear with four large tires in a row, from forward to aft [2].

There are three supplemental wings attached from the fuselage to the landing gear pylon to create an airfoil. Outboard of the landing gear pylon on each wing is a aerodynamic pylon with a short wing. The aft of the Bumblecrow has a diagonal stabilizer fin, attached with two pylons, on each side of the fuselage.

Bumblecrows have four engines: a pair in the back of the fuselage and one each in the non-retracting landing gear pylons[3].

A Bumblecrow has at least two flight decks with a cockpit above and multiple armed turrets with machine guns. Some models have a pair of large doors to allow for freight transport. Bumblecrows are large enough to have horseclaw pens onboard[4].

Bumblecrows are slower than both Torumekian Armored Corvettes and the giant insects Hebikera[5].
