The atmospheric stormtrooper transport was an open-top repulsor craft used by the Galactic Empire to move stormtroopers at the time of the Galactic Civil War. Such vehicles were notably used at the temporary Imperial garrison base of Mos Eisley, Tatooine, during the search for the Rebel droids R2-D2 and C-3PO.
Behind the scenesEdit
The stormtrooper transport first appeared in scenes included in the 1997 Special Edition re-release of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, in which it can be seen flying in the atmosphere at a distance. It was first identified in the 2016 reference book Star Wars: Complete Locations.
