A gunship was a class of vessel used by military forces. Usually equipped with heavy armament and mainly used for offensive operations, several models of gunship could also fill the role of a troop transport. During the Clone Wars, the Republic Army often made use of the Low Altitude Assault Transport, also called the Republic attack gunship. Its light cousin, the LAAT/le patrol gunship, was used as a patrol craft for police forces on Coruscant and other worlds. The Auzituck anti-slaver gunship was manufactured by the Wookiees of Kashyyyk to fight off slavers that frequently attacked their world. The Razor Crest was an pre-Empire era military patrol gunship that was owned by Mandalorian bounty hunter, Din Djarin.
