The Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry was a type of LAAT gunship used by the Republic during the Clone Wars. Also known as the Republic Gunship and larty by the troopers, it was an effective vehicle used for attacking and for transporting troops. After the Clone Wars, the few remaining were used for a short period, before they were deactivated or destroyed.

EquipmentEdit

The LAAT/i had lots of armaments. It had three anti-personal turrets that were stationed two in the front under the cockpit and one in the back under the wings. It had four laser beam turrets operated by gunners that were very useful and could destroy both aerial targets and ground targets. Eight light air-to-air missiles were used to destroy approaching enemy forces in the sky. Also, it had two mass-driver missile launchers in the rear of the vehicle loaded with homing missiles.

Inside the gunship, four military-class speeder bikes could be deployed, along with an IM-6 medical droid in the emergency kit. In an emergency, the cockpit could turn into an escape vessel and flee the ship. The ship was capable of holding up to thirty passengers, and handles were held by cables on the top of the ship to help steady the troopers during rocky flights.

HistoryEdit

Clone WarsEdit

Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry gunships were first used during the Battle of Geonosis, where they deployed the troopers from Kamino and destroyed both aerial and ground targets. They eventually helped the Republic win the battle, and they were sent with troopers to their destinations to stop the Confederacy and win the war.

They were used during many battles and were vital during battles, bringing troops with them to help the remaining struggling forces. During the Battle of Muunilinst, they dropped off tons of troops to prevent to approaching droid forces. In the Battle of Ryloth, the Republic forces were almost decimated until the Republic arrived in these gunships. Also, one gunship was loaded with explosives and was set off by the clone troopers in order to stop the droid army attempting to attack the Republic from a side.

Some known gunships were Lucky Lekku, Crumb Bomber, Spaceward Ho!, Bantha Poodoo, Plo's Bros, Separatist Nightmare, Bad Kitty, Dooku Boot, Boot Gunray, and The Bug Stomper.

Galactic EmpireEdit

After the fall of the Republic, the Empire used some of the remaining gunships for patrols and attack vessels. Some people also found them deserted or destroyed on planets after battles had been fought. During that time, they were known as "Alliance Assault Craft" and "Rebel Assault Transports".

Just after the Empire took over, Imperial storm commando Sarkli landed on a planet with a deserted gunship

and some B1 battle droids, both of which were left over from the just ended Clone Wars. He successfully used it and destroyed it, only to crash it into a canyon wall when Wedge Antilles, who had accidentally gotten there, used an E-web blaster cannon and severely damaged it.

CustomizationEdit

Some troopers customized their gunships to look a certain way. A LAAT gunship used on Muunilinst was customized to have a blue background, along with sharp teeth in a mouth and eyes. Others were not as customized and had nose art such as Twi'leks or whatever they wanted. The Lucky Lekku and Spaceward Ho! both had art of female Twi'leks, and the Plo's Bros gunships had art of Plo Koon and two troopers, showing the owners of the vehicles.

Out-of-UniverseEdit

The gunship is similar to certain military helicopters, as the sphere turrets are like the miniguns, and the doors are like the sliding doors on choppers.
