Pain is life, while I feel pain I still live, and while I still live I will seek vengance.We are few but strong in will
The last with pagan blood
We fought the world with burning steel
Now we sit in Hall of Gods
A drop pod is a big metal container that gets shot out of a ship in orbit. The container lands on the planet's surface and its walls fold down to reveal whats being carried inside. Usually its packed with a space marine squad, sometimes a dreadnaught.

Check out that link, ForgeWorld makes some drop pod models for the really hardcore space marine collector. (You'll have to scroll down toward the bottom)
I am the Aquila-Guerilla!
drop pods can carry anything in power armour, term armour, dreds, so vehicals???
but the coolest drop pods are assault cannon/missle drop pods
a drop pod lands in the middle of a bunch of orks........
the orks surround it thinking there will be space marines inside.........
the walls drop down........
orks look inside.........
a wall of assault cannon bullets rip them apart... HAHAHH
Vehicles are harder to deploy from orbit. Marines and dreads get drop podded in, termies can be teleported in, but vehicles must be flown down via thunderhawk transporter, which is vunerable to enemy fire. Consequently, other forces will secure an area first before vehicles are dropped in for support.
