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.
