Although it had a small crew of only two, a pilot and a gunner, it could still lay down an impressive amount of firepower. Obviously slower than its counterparts, such as the Scyk and Dunelizard, it was nonetheless well-received, like most MandalMotors designs. Several of its cover panels had no purpose besides pure aesthetics.
M-22T was originally commissioned by Jabba Desilijic Tiure as a command ship for his lieutenants. MandalMotors produced many more such gunships as a special order for valued clients. It was so heavily armed and armored, that it attracted attention of the Galactic Empire.
