Hover cannons were heavily armed, floating assassin droids with repulsors powerful enough to reach the Senate Landing Platforms of Coruscant. A number of them were used by the Coruscant mercenaries to attack Queen Padmé Amidala and Captain Quarsh Panaka as they traveled to 500 Republica in 32 BBY.[source?]
Behind the scenesEdit
Hover cannons appear in 1999's Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace video game. The mission in which they appear completely contradicts the scene in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. In the film, Amidala goes straight to the Senate Building without incident.
