Although this article is based on official information from the Star Wars Legends continuity, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

"The smaller craft are the combat vehicles. Stick with the five transports."
―General Carlist Rieekan during the Rendezvous on Barkhesh[src]

Armed transports were long repulsorcraft capable of carrying large amounts of cargo. They were usually armed with a single laser cannon.

The Barkhesh Resistance employed five of the transports, escorted by three combat vehicles, in a convoy to transport supplies to the Rebel Alliance shortly after the Battle of Yavin. The transports were escorted by the T-65 X-wing starfighters of Rogue Squadron.

Later, the Galactic Empire employed the vehicles as decoys for any possible rescue missions on the planet Kessel. They were rigged to emit Human life readings to deflect attention away from a nearby armored hovertrain that was actually carrying the prisoners and give it time to reach its destination, though this attempt didn't work.

Behind the scenesEdit

The armed transports appear in the 1998 video game Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. In the Rescue on Kessel mission, the Imperials use the vehicles as decoys; the player has the option of hunting them or proceeding to the hovertrain.
