The HWK-290 freighter was a model of freighter[1] that existed during the reign of the Galactic Empire that could be flown by a single pilot and had life support. Gamut Key,[2] the Imperial-appointed provincial governor of the planet Kaller,[3] owned a HWK-290.[2] Originally manufactured without weapons, numerous HWK-290s were outfitted by the Alliance to Restore the Republic to drop incendiary bombs during the Undead Troopers invasion, which made them effective against infantry targets.[1] One HWK-290 freighter was being held at the Imperial Impound Yard on Novka when it was attacked by several rebels.[4]
