Disgusting wheels, for reasons that have already been stated.

'Cos drop ships are spaceships based on helicopters.

Looks a bit hokey to be honest.  An original design would've been better.

Well Blackhawks, Apaches, Chinooks, Merlins, and Sea Knights all have wheels, and I want to say more military helicopters today have wheels vs skids, so it makes sense.

I do prefer the skids look from the original though, if it aint broke don't fix it.

f it aint broke don't fix it.

This is the key here. Same as putting modern sights on a pulse rifle, it's likely going to be more effective to the imagined user but just looks like ass.

Why does it have wheels?

Rolling take-offs. It acts like a Harrier and F-35. It allows them to carry more weight than pure VTOL allows for, meaning not as much fuel is used up for taking off. It's why neither of those planes are usually shown taking off vertically.

That would actually have more obvious benefits for a cargo transport than the typical armed version, which might need to carrier heavier loads than a single armoured vehicle.
