Mole miners drilling the surface of Nkllon

"Fifty-one of my best reconditioned mole miners [taken]!"
Lando Calrissian[1]

Slayn & Korpil Plasma-Jet Mole Miners (also called drill-jets or mole miners) were large mining devices that could be used in vacuum. Lando Calrissian used mole miners when he created Nomad City on Nkllon. During his campaign against the New Republic, Grand Admiral Thrawn stole a complement of mole miners to be used at the subsequent Battle of Sluis Van, where they were used to drill into the fleet stationed at Sluis Van. Thrawn used these mining vessels to drill through New Republic capital ships, and deliver boarding parties of spacetroopers and stormtroopers. This tactic made them effective.
