The 9118 was a heavy carbine design manufactured by the Rodian owned N'Gant-Zarvel corporation. Sporting a short barrel, the weapon was known for its ease of use, stopping power and exceptional range for a carbine. This weapon cost 1000 credits. This carbine saw its primary use in the field as the preferred service weapon of special forces and guerrilla fighters, despite the loud, "thumping" sound it produced when it was fired. Sometime following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, Staff Sergeant Rothax, based out of the Talus Imperial Outpost, sold this carbine to Imperials who served valiantly in the battlefield.
