Grond

It seems my dropship is quite popular as I have received many comments on it. With a friend we had a minor brainstorm session and I settled on the name Grond, after the battering ram from Mordor. Seems suitable for a Inquisitorial shuttle, don't you think?

"Great engines crawled across the field; and in the midst was a huge ram, great as a forest-tree a hundred feet in length, swinging on mighty chains. Long had it been forging in the dark smithies of Mordor, and its hideous head, founded of black steel, was shaped in the likeness of a ravening wolf; on it spells of ruin lay. Grond they named it, in memory of the Hammer of the Underworld of old. Great beasts drew it, orcs surrounded it, and behind walked mountain-trolls to wield it."
—The Return of the King
Grond, also known as the Wolf's Head, was a one hundred and fifty-foot long battering ram with a head in the shape of a ravening wolf.
