The USS Sulaco is a Conestoga class starship, designed as a troop and logistics transport.

Sulaco masses 78,000 metric tons and can carry an additional 20,000 tons of cargo. It measures 385 meters in length. As a troop carrier, Sulaco carries two UD4L Cheyenne dropships and has sufficient life support capabilities for 90 crew and passengers to be supported indefinitely. The ship is fully automated and can sustain and defend itself with the use of an advanced Artificial Intelligence computer. An android accompanies most missions to monitor the computer and life support systems.

It is powered by a Westingland A-59 3.6 terawatt fusion reactor using high density lithium hydride for fuel. The high density of the lithium hydride provides the ship with one whole year of power with only 900 cubic meters of fuel. The reactor itself is protected by armor and in an emergency, the reactor can vent pressure and eject dangerous liquids safely into space, preventing damage of the ship itself. It has a regular acceleration of 0.5g [5 m/s²] and can go a maximum acceleration of one g, but will burn 16 times as much fuel if it operates at this speed. Sublight propulsion is provided by four GF-2400 rocket motors using industrial carbon-diamond as reaction mass. Faster-than-light propulsion is provided by a hyperdrive tachyon shunt, with a maximum speed of 0.74 light year per sidereal day. The ship is designed to operate in space only - if it enters an atmosphere with any type of gravity, it will not be able to sustain any acceleration and crash.
