Shuttlecraft are small, short-range vessels serving crew aboard starships, space stations, outposts or colonies. Also known as shuttles, they usually have impulse capabilities and sometimes, but not always, warp capabilities.

Shuttlecraft are usually utilized when transporters are inoperable, unavailable or too risky. (TNG: "Power Play", et al)

Many races use shuttles or shuttlecraft. Starfleet held a wide range of shuttle sizes and types throughout its history, including small shuttlepods and larger runabouts. (TNG: "Unnatural Selection", et al; DS9: "Emissary", et al)

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Assault shuttles were armed shuttles used by the Galactic Empire and New Republic for landing infantry units. An assault shuttle would typically contain one platoon consisting of forty stormtroopers. Assault shuttles were used by Imperial agents when Morgan Katarn was killed on Sulon, and would also be used to land troops during the Battle of Fort Nowhere. Imperial Assault Shuttles were a variant.

The 40-ton Assault Shuttle is on of many designs to provide an armed and armored assult vessel for military operations. A factor-9 armor provides protection while a single turret mounting a sandcaster, missile launcher and a pulse laser provides offensive punch. In many cases the weapons on the turret mount are changed to support mission objectives.

The 15 ton cargo bay has two large external doors on either size for fast entry or exit. The bay can be used to carry up to 30 troops, or their equipment.
