Warframe Update 17.5 Introduced the Mantis Landing Craft which works as an alternative ship.
The Mantis is unique in the way that you can use the Mantis Landing Craft to send AIr-Support Med Towers to player’s location healing player allies. (Air-Support requires Charges that you build just like Energy Restores) Plus, the Mantis is bigger than the liset and can be seen in the loading screen. Currently, the Liset and Mantis Interior are the same but will probably change in the future.
First, in order to build the Mantis Landing Craft, you will need to craft the Landing Segment which is available through the Clan Dojo. You can opt out of building the Landing Segment if you bought the Mantis Landing Craft with 150 Platinum.
After building the Landing Segment, you can now build the Mantis. (You will not be allowed to build the Mantis components if you don’t have the landing craft foundry segment built & installed) The blueprint is available in the Market for 35,000 Credits and it’s components(Fuselage, Engines, and Avionics) are only available through Reinforced or Rare Storage Containers throughout missions. The easiest way to find these components is to run raids or do void captures with loot radar preferably on T3 or T4.
Each components takes 12 hours to build and the Landing Craft itself takes 72 hours.
