CL-4477 prepares to fire an RPS-6 on Rugosa

The RPS-6 rocket launcher was produced by Merr-Sonn Munitions, Inc. during the time of the Clone Wars. It fired rockets from a magazine of six.[source?] The rocket was capable of destroying vehicles protected by ray shields, but were ineffective against Umbaran mobile heavy cannons.[4]

History[]

The RPS-6 was used by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars.[5] The Royal Naboo Security Forces on the planet Naboo also used the launcher during that time period. Chrin fired one at a droid patrol.[2]

During the Battle of Umbara, members of the 501st Legion carried the RPS-6 and fired them against Umbaran militia vehicles in a frontal assault against an airbase.[4]

CT-7567 used one to destroy an Armored Assault Tank on Kiros.[6]

Later on in the war, Anakin Skywalker paid Hondo Ohnaka to gun-run a supply of the latest RPS-6s to the rebels on Onderon. They were successfully fired against a quartet of Heavy Missile Platform droid gunships.[3]

Clone troopers carried three during the invasion of Scipio. They were used against Hyena-class bombers.[7]
