"What difference does it make now? The Separatists know we're involved."
"I don't disagree with you Anakin, but to send in Republic gunships defeats our purpose."

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,[2] also called the Republic attack gunship.[3] Its light cousin, the LAAT/le patrol gunship, was used as a patrol craft for police forces on Coruscant[4] and other worlds.[5] The Auzituck anti-slaver gunship was manufactured by the Wookiees of Kashyyyk to fight off slavers that frequently attacked their world.[6] The Razor Crest was an pre-Empire era military patrol gunship that was owned by Mandalorian bounty hunter, Din Djarin.[7]
