The HH-12 rocket launcher was a model of black-colored missile launcher used by the Special Forces of the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War against the Galactic Empire. In the year 0 BBY, the Rogue One special forces unit brought HH-12s with them on their mission to steal the plans for the Empire's Death Star superweapon from the Citadel Tower on the planet Scarif. The former Guardians of the Whills, Baze Malbus, appropriated[1] one of the launchers to use on an All Terrain Armored Cargo Transport attacking Alliance forces, but the weapon was not strong enough to penetrate the walker's armor.[4]

Byrco Hansid used a HH-12 rocket launcher when he served with the Resistance. Due to his distrust of technology, he simplified it by installing shaped lenses for visual targeting.[3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The HH-12 rocket launcher first appeared as a prop in the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The weapon was not named in the film but received identification in Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide, a reference book written by Pablo Hidalgo and released alongside the film.
