"The latest from Sienar!"
"Rocket launchers?"
"Shoulder-fire. Very expensive.
―Hondo Ohnaka and Ahsoka Tano[7]

The RPS-6 rocket launcher,[10] also known as the Sienar shoulder-launched missile,[11] was a model of missile launcher manufactured by Merr-Sonn Munitions, Inc. and Sienar Fleet Systems. It was relatively lightweight and easily transportable, and was ideal for mobile infantry units. Its aiming system could be connected to a clone trooper's helmet heads-up display, and each rocket launcher came equipped with a magazine of 6 small, yet powerful missiles. The launcher was also able to fire homing missiles or incendiary missiles.[12]

The RPS-6 was the main model of infantry-portable shoulder-fired rocket launcher used in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.[2] During the Ambush on Rugosa, Clone Lieutenant Thire fired a rocket from a RPS-6 rocket launcher to cause a rockfall and destroy a group of droidekas attacking Jedi Grand Master Yoda.[3] It was also used by IG-100 MagnaGuards.[4]

During the Battle of Umbara, the clone troopers of the 501st Legion used these rocket launchers against the Umbaran Militia's Impeding Assault Tanks.[13]

During the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker paid Hondo Ohnaka to deliver several crates of rocket launchers to Onderon to be used by the rebels against the HMP droid gunships during the Battle of Onderon. After delivering ten rocket launchers, Saw, Steela, and some members of the Onderon rebels used them to destroy the remaining gunships.[7]

The Galactic Empire's Rocket Stormtroopers were equipped with them.[8]
