An Imperial IFT-T hovertank

A hovertank or repulsortank was a type of tank that ran on repulsorlifts, and was usually more heavily armed and armored than a combat landspeeder. Hovertanks could be outfitted with deflector shields, like the T1-B hovertank.



The Rebel Alliance's T1-B hovertank was equipped with deflector shields.

Clone WarsEdit

Depending on the model, some hovertanks were relatively fast and agile, such as the TX-130 Saber-class fighter tank employed by the Grand Army of the Republic and the Ground Armored Tank used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems,[1] while others were much larger and sluggish, but very powerful, such as the Dreadnought battle tank and the Protodeka.

Galactic Civil WarEdit

Models used during the Galactic Civil War included the Galactic Empire's 2-M Saber-class repulsor tank,[2] the TX-130T fighter tank,[3] and the HAVr A9 Floating Fortress.[4] The Alliance to Restore the Republic also maintained several hovertanks in their army, including the T1-B hovertank[5] and the AAC-1 speeder tank.[6]

Colonel Zel Johans, commanding officer of the Imperial Hammers Elite Armor Unit known colloquially as the Hell's Hammers, was instrumental in the development of the repulsortank and its deployment tactics in the Imperial Army.
