"Some pretty serious burns, but nothing a night in the bacta tank won't fix."
Ahsoka Tano, to an injured Anakin Skywalker[10]

A bacta tank was a cylindrical tank into which a being could be submerged for extensive exposure to bacta, a fluid that could accelerate healing and treat major injuries.[2] Bacta tanks already existed during the Clone Wars, when the Galactic Republic used them to treat its injured soldiers.[5] After being attacked and severely injured by a wampa ice creature on the frigid planet of Hoth, Commander Luke Skywalker was put into a bacta tank so he could recover from his wounds.[7]

A bacta tank was located in Darth Vader's castle on Mustafar, where the Dark Lord would relax and meditate outside of his life support armor with a modicum of comfort.[8][11]

A portable format of the bacta tank was also available, called the bacta pod.[9] On Tatooine, Boba Fett bathed in his bacta tank at many points in time.[9][12][13] He used it to heal his burned scars.[14][15] After the battle for Mos Espa Fett's bacta tank was used on Cobb Vanth, after he was shot by Cad Bane, while a cyborg modifier was taking care of him.[16]
