The Samson is the RDA's aerial truck, designed to carry out mostly non-combat missions. It can be used to drop supplies and personnel at distant field sites, including delivering avatars for interaction with the Na'vi. Its heavy-duty winch can lift portable lab modules for use in the Pandoran rainforests or mountains. The aircraft features minimal armament for defensive purposes only, making it an easy target in a battle against Earth weaponry. Its closed-rotor system and cutters on leading edges allow for safe operation in the rainforest.
