    The Mu-2 class Shuttle is a scout shuttle that was introduced by Sienar Fleet Systems at least by the time of the Battle of Yavin. It is the second model in the Mu-class series of Shuttles. It was originally designed for Imperial Scout platoons. Model 1 featured limited sleeping space, however it seated 24 passengers. While the Model 2 (Mu-2 Shuttle) includes four small enclosed cabins, meeting the demands of the comfort-minded long-range traveller. At the rear of the shuttle there is a small galley with plenty of food storage. The cockpit has been reduced by two seats and some weaponry was removed to permit expansion of the passenger space and hold.

    Based on the success of the Lambda-class Shuttle established among Imperial outposts, the Mu-class was designed for long range applications. The exterior is most similar to the Lambda Shuttle, employing two fold out lower stabilizers for manoeuvrability, though the single tall central fin has been replaced by two shorter sensor arrays. Sienar Fleet Systems is continually improving their line of shuttles, and are able to customize the Mu-2 by trading cargo space for cabins, or vice-versa. The ability to ferry a large group to distant points makes this shuttle the craft of choice for outpost resupply. Mining corporations, such as the Radell Mining Corporation located in the Elrood Sector makes use of these shuttles.

*After Endor* The Mu-2 class Shuttle is finding wider service with the New Republic Scouts.
