This Low Altitude Assault Transport was used by The Muunilinst 10 during their mission to Hypori. It had a unique paint job compared to other LAAT gunships. The gunship had a jagged blue line up to the top of it. There was also blue covering the missile pod, except the wings, which had white triangles going to the top. A glaring rancor's mouth was painted on the nose of the ship. The side gunpods were omitted. It also had a modified cockpit.
The Muunilinst 10 was sent to Hypori to rescue the survivors from the encounter with General Grievous. Their gunship, flying at just under two meters, was able to sneak past hundreds of droids, and drop remote control detonators before they took notice. After dropping off Captain Fordo and his team, the gunship rose to a vantage point and began firing at the super battle droids that had begun to charge their location.
Shortly after this, Fordo called for backup. The pilot of the LAAT immediately broke off and flew to the Muunilinst 10's position, where the ARC Troopers had encountered General Grievous and were losing ground fast. The gunship opened fire on the droid general with both its anti-personnel laser turrets and mass-driver missile launchers.
Grievous evaded the entire barrage of fire, retreating to a safe distance from the gunship. The ARC Troopers then successfully rescued the Jedi Masters Ki-Adi-Mundi, Aayla Secura and Shaak Ti, loading them and the remaining troopers onto the gunship and taking off, detonating the previously dropped charges to clear their escape route.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Rancor pattern on the nose of the ship is a reference to real-life fighter planes with similar paint schemes.
