Armoured Hover Train

The armoured hover train is, as the name suggests, a long train of armoured carriages that run along what is apparently a maglev track. It appears in the Nintendo 64 & PC computer game Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, on the spice-mine asteroid Kessel, and is used to transport prisoners and cargo across the planetoid. There are three discernible carriage types on the Kessel train: a cargo carriage (a simple cuboid), a cockpit (a sloping cuboid) and a gun carriage with two turbolasers cannons and a missile launcher. According to Wedge Antilles (who was captured and taken to Kessel) "the food is good, but the service is lousy".


Basilisk

The Basilisk is a ship seen in the second Knights of the Old Republic game and "Tales of the Jedi" comic book series. In Knights of the Old Republic 2, the Exile used it to land on Onderon during the Battle for Onderon. The pilot rides on the droid's back, wearing a spacesuit. However, in Knights of the Old Republic, a completely different class of Basilisk is used, which is based heavily on the Star Viper/Virago from Shadows of the Empire.

Corellian Gunship

The Corellian Gunship is a cousin to the Corellian Corvette. Unlike other Corellian designs, which tend to be suited towards a variety of missions, the Corerllian Gunship is geared entirely towards combat. Its primary function is to engage opposing fighter craft, using its 6 Quad Lasers with 360 degree fire arcs in concert with its incredible speed and manuverablity. These ships can do tremendous damage to any fighter group they engage. For its size and speed there is no better anti-starfighter platform than a Corellian Gunship.

Fanblade Starfighter

The Fanblade Starfighter is based on Geonosian air patrol skimmers (Ginevx-class starfighters) which are also called "fanblades" for their distinctive and very vital feature, a fan like wing going all around from the top to bottom vertically.


The fan deploys for combat mode, stretched in a half circle along a pair of boom arms. Atop each arm is a double laser cannon that when deployed into combat mode swings into place. When the arms are shut, the cannons will only point foward due to a limited hinge joint that locks them into place. When in combat mode, the cannons have limited movement. Combat mode is not the only mode for the "fanblade". The downside to the combat mode with its fan extended is that with the fan's exotic material, it also serves as a transmission plane for deflector shield energy. However, that is the problem: the shield energy makes it stick out on sensors. With the fan folded in, it is very difficult to target. To make it even harder to target, ion bafflers are installed in sublight engines. The fan also is similar to the one on Dooku's solar sailer, acting as an alternate form of propulsion, not that it matters, as the fanblade is fitted with hyperdrives for hyperspace travel, in addition to its standard sublight engines. In physics, hyperspace is a theoretical entity. ...


The Fanblade starfighter can be seen in the Clone Wars micro series. The initial battle of the Clone Wars: The Battle of Geonosis In the Star Wars saga, the Clone Wars, (also known as the Clone War) were a series of intragalactic battles in the Star Wars galaxy that took place from 22 BBY to 19 BBY. The Clone Wars were featured...


Flash Speeder

Flash Speeder
Flash Speeder

The Flash Speeder is a small landspeeder used by the Naboo Royal Security Forces. It is actually a slightly modified version of the civilian Seraph-class landspeeder. It is used for street patrol, personnel transport and high-speed pursuit of criminals. Since Naboo is a fairly peaceful planet, it is not designed for combat. There is a rotating blaster mounted on the back of the speeder. The Flash speeder can comfortably seat two people, including the driver, and two more passengers can squeeze into the rear seats. The engines are tuned to give the pilot maximum control in the streets of Naboo and can use its repulsorlifts to attain a height of two meters. Image File history File links Flash_Speeder. ...

Gian Speeder

Gian Speeder
Gian Speeder

The Gian Speeder is a landspeeder used by the Naboo Royal Security Forces in the fictional Star Wars saga. It is similar to its cousin the Flash Speeder but is only used for serious situations. The Gian Speeder's weapons are 3 laser cannons that can easily disable civilian vehicles and are also effective against military targets. It carries a pilot, gunner and 2 passengers. The Gian Speeder's hull is stronger than that of its civilian counterpart, the SoroSuub V-19. The Gian Speeder is 5.7 metres long and is equipped with thrust pods tucked in at its back to reduce target silhouette. It is faster than the more powerful, but sluggish Trade Federation Armoured Assault Tank. It first appeared in The Phantom Menace where the Naboo Security Forces used it to recapture Naboo from the Trade Federation. The vehicle may be named for Giancarlo Coppola, the deceased son of Lucas's friend and mentor Francis Ford Coppola, who, like both Lucas and Coppola, had a strong interest in cars.

HAG (Heavy Artillery Gun)

CIS Heavy Artillery Gun
CIS Heavy Artillery Gun

The Trade Federation's Heavy Artillery Gun or Mortar Tank as they are more commonly known within the ranks of the Republic military are an upgraded version of the AAT, or Armoured Assault Tank. As well as an armour upgrade, they also are refitted to fire mortars. HAGs were used in the earlier stages of the Clone Wars to bombard the enemy with a full load of 120 mortars. The HAGs soon stopped being produced due to the deployment of the Republic's AT-XT. The AT-XT, or experimental walker, was a faster, more manuverable variation of the Heavy Assult Guns, and with their plasma shield capabilities, made the HAGs seem like nothing more than the battle droids that piloted them. They were present at the Battle of Naboo and were firing on the Naboo Outpost and their turrets, but they were destroyed one by one by Rhys Dallows, Nym, Vana Sage, Reti and Jenkins. But before the AT-XT was deployed, it was a dangerous foe to ground-based stationary enemies and outposts. Image File history File linksMetadata Cis_hag. ...

Hapan Battle Dragon

The Hapan Battle Dragons are saucer-shaped starships used by the Hapes Cluster. They are about 500 metres long and are heavily armed with nearly 100 gun emplacements. A Hapan Battle Dragon consists of two saucers joined in the middle and manipulated by means of saucer rotation struts. Ion cannons were mounted along the edge of the top disk, set on a type of rotating chain. As each cannon fired, it rotated along the saucer rim, the next cannon in line swung into place, ready to fire. This configuration proved to be superior to a standard turbo laser battery due to the speed at which the guns circled the saucer. While each individual cannon spends approximately 90% of its combat time idle while it charges its capacitors, no gun is stationary, the net result was a sustained barrage of ion cannon blasts. The Hapans used this to disable the shields of another capital ship, such as an Imperial-class Star Destroyer, and then fired salvos of proton torpedoes from the Dragon's 10 launchers, projecting a "mass shadow". This was found to be extremely effective, especially when the Hapans attacked with multiple Battle Dragons, as witnessed during the battle over Dathomir. Unique amongst their weaponry were pulse mass mines distributed by means of pulse mass generator tubes exerting an effect similar in nature to gravity well projectors and dovin basals that stimulate a "mass shadow" that prevents ships from jumping into hyperspace. Battle Dragons also carried three squadrens of Miy'tils, and were deployed as a fighter screen to prevent heavy bombers penetrating the ion cannon defense. In the Star Wars Expanded Universe, the Hapes Consortium is an alliance of sixty-three worlds. ...


Hornet Interceptor

The Hornet Interceptor is a starship frequently used by smugglers, pirates and other fringe groups. Named for its insectoid appearance, Hornets were cheap, yet capable starfighters. Unfortunately the fighters were vulnerable in atmosphere due to their poor aerodynamics.


Administrator Doole, the Ribet responsible for the prison uprisal on Kessel, acquired several of these fighters as part of the planet's defense fleet, and some were responsible for shooting down the Millennium Falcon. However, almost all of them were destroyed when Admiral Daala's Imperial fleet attacked the world, thinking that it was a Rebel Base.


When the Peace Brigade faction aligned with the Yuuzhan Vong, they also procurred several Hornets, in the mistaken belief that the ships vaguely organic appearance would impress the Yuuzhan Vong, who themselves hated machinery and embraced living technology.


Ithullan Ore Hauler

The Ithullan Ore Hauler was a kilometre long vessel used by the Nessies to transport mutonium ore. The Nessies are a humanoid race that inhabite the Stenness Node Systems which was a valuable mining region. It is an unusual vehicle because it is made from the carapaces of the kilometre-long Ithullan wasps. These wasps were huge and abundant and as a result many of them are hunted by poachers. Once an Ithullan wasp dies, its body is converted into an ore hauler. The cockpit is located in its head while its thorax is fitted with stores for the precious mutonium ore. The abdomen is fitted with additional stores and engines. Their shells are strong enough to repel blaster bolts. Their main weapon is a pair of heavy turbolasers mounted in the forward section of the wasp. They were in use thousands of years before the rise of Palpatine's empire. His Imperial Majesty Emperor Palpatine of the Galactic Empire (82 BBY – 4 ABY, spirit incapacitated 11 ABY), often simply referred to as the Emperor, is one of the main characters and the foremost villain in the fictional Star Wars universe. ...

Scarab Starfighter

The Scarab was an experimental concept by the Trade Federation. It began its life as a prototype that became widely accepted even before the Clone Wars, and acted as a forerunner in design to the more deadly Droid Starfighter deployed in the Invasion of Naboo. The Scarab performed quite well in combat testing and was introduced to the Trade Federation starfighter forces only months after the first prototypes rolled off the assembly lines. It was armed with 4 laser cannons, the same as the Droid Starfighter, but to save production costs the energy torpedo launchers were deleted. Like the Droid Starfighter it could open and close its wings to disguise its combat nature until the last minute. As on almost any craft, the shields reduced manoeuvrability and so the craft was not as agile as the Droid Starfighter was. It did gain one large advantage: instead of the solid fuel slugs used in its contemporary, the Scarab used conventional ion engines, giving more or less unlimited flight time.

The vulture droid is a droid starfighter that relies on speed, manuverability, and numbers instead of strength, fire power, and endurance in the CIS army. ...


Sh'ner-class Planetary Assault Carrier

The Sh'ner-class Planetary Assault Carrieris important to the Ssi-Ruuvi Imperium fleet as they carry Swarm-class Battle Droids and D'kee class Landing ships used in invasions and space battles. It is weak in armour and armament and is 750 metres long. Its weapons are 6 ion cannons and 2 tractor beam projectors. The carrier also has 12 launching bays for the D'kee-class Landing Ships with 12 landing bays used for capturing enemy vessels. The carrier is also equipped with 12 entechment labs to drain prisoners of their life energies and giant batteries to store these energies. The crew consists of 60 Ssi-Ruuk who make up the command crew along with about 500 P'w'ecks which are slaves and 300 droids. Because of the large number of P'w'ecks, their Ssi-Ruuvi masters make sure that stun traps are planted in every corridor and room to ensure obedience. These stun traps can cause terrible pain to the P'w'ecks, and can kill humans. Every P'w'eck also has a neural inhibitor implanted into them. The carrier can carry 12 D'kee-class landing ships which can transport troops. This is a list of sentient races from the fictional universe of Star Wars. ...

The Techno Union Starship is a capital ship used by both the Techno Union and the Intergalactic Banking Clan. It first appeared during the Battle of Geonosis (in Attack of the Clones) where many of its kind had their fuel-cells taken out by Republic LAAT gunships, thus preventing them from escaping. Before the Battle of Geonosis, there were 286 of the starships on Geonosis but only 169 escaped to space. It was designated as the "Hardcell Class" transport starship, was 220 metres long, and was shaped like a rocket. It was used to deploy hailfire droids and later the Intergalactic Banking Clan's own battle droids, the IG lancers. The ship had a conical nose housing quarters for the organic crew, command decks and medical decks.

A Telos Shuttle leaving a docking bay at the Citadel Station

The Telos Shuttle was a vehicle used during the recovery project at Telos. It is seen in the game Knights of the Old Republic II, where the player is forced to use the shuttle in order to find Bao-Dur. The shuttle is shot down by a Czerka turret and the Jedi Exile then used Bao-Dur's help to find another shuttle in the Czerka base. The Exile flew to the polar region of Telos, where the shuttle was once again shot down, this time by an HK-50 unit. The shuttle is commonly used to transport restorers from the Citadel Station to the surface of Telos.

Tsmeu-6 Personal Wheel Bike

The Tsmeu-6 Personal Wheel Bike is a vehicle seen in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. A Separatist ground craft resembling a giant wheel, with four clawed legs hanging from the sides. It could roll on the ground at great speed, crushing enemy soldiers in its path. The legs were engaged whenever the craft needed to climb steep cliffs, especially useful on the sinkhole-filled planet of Utapau. The driver was positioned in a seat on one side of the wheel, while a twin-barreled cannon occupied the other side. The wheel bike was based on technologies created for the hoop-wheeled hailfire droids used by the CIS and Designed by Z-Gomot Ternbuell Guppat Corporation in the Zug system. The Tsmeu-6 gets its stability from the gyroscopic effect produced by the massive counterspinning internal chains that drive the wheel. The chain-links feature built-in capacitors that store reserve energy to power the legs and the double blaster assembly that sits opposite the control chair.

TX-130S Fighter Tank

A TX-130S Fighter Tank

Considered by many to be the Jedi Starfighter of ground combat because of its outstanding speed and manoeuvrability, the TX-130 fighter tank was the second of the Republic’s main two ground assault vehicles in the early years of the early Clone Wars, the other being the AT-TE. Like almost every other military ground and atmospheric vehicle used by the Republic in the Clone Wars it was produced by Rothana Heavy Engineering. Like the AT-XT, it was also sometimes commandeered by Jedi doing solo missions for the Republic, who often installed an R2 astromech droid where the exterior gunner would be and had no light blaster cannons on top of their customized craft. This was called the S version, or solo version. Like most of the Republic’s other ground assault craft it was transported into battle by a LAAT/c cargo gunship. The shields were state-of-the-art Exo-Shell 3 types, the first ever installed in a ground vehicle, which were, for prototypes, very powerful and they didn’t compromise speed, agility or weapons power. However, they did have a weakness: while the shields were recharging they did not provide even light protection for the craft, which then had to rely on hull plating. The computer-guided Thermal detonator missiles, though not nearly as powerful as the tanksmasher rockets used by the IGBC (InterGalactic Banking Clan) Hailfire droid, were still adequately powerful enough to deal with most opposition and could easily destroy a dwarf spider droid. The missiles could be replaced with other types of ammunition, such as concussion missiles, and the bays themselves could be replaced with things like grenade launchers.

TX-203 Advanced Scout Tank

During the rise of the Galactic Empire, the need for a tank with more firepower and more cargo/crew capacity than the existing TX-130T resulted in the TX-203. Often deployed for longer durations than the fighter tank, the TX-203 was used primarily in the search for rebel occupation in the outer rim territories. The newly formed Rebel legion did not have the resources to heavily fortify the entry points to their bases, so they relied on camouflaged entrances to hide their location. As soon as the recon squad would locate the hidden entrance, the TX-203 would assault the entry point with its side mounted turbo-lasers, often sealing the rebels in their base. The squad would then call in heavy reinforcements, which included modified mining equipment and seismic tanks to finish the attack.

The galactic setting of Star Wars is never given a name and is called simply "the galaxy." Since the characters never venture beyond the galaxy and the power of both the Republic and the Empire ends at its borders, the galaxy clearly serves, ironically enough, as a microcosm of both Earth and a country.
