"I used to bull's-eye womp rats in my T-16 back home."
―Luke Skywalker[src]

T-16 skyhoppers were personal repulsorlift airspeeders manufactured by Incom Corporation, recognizable by its distinctive tri-wing design. It was a popular, high-performance airspeeder due to its stable and reliable transportation on almost any world, and thus provided many youths with their first flight training.[1] The T-16's trihedral design greatly resembled that of the Imperial Lambda-class T-4a shuttle.[9][10]

History[]

A T-16 in landing configuration

Luke Skywalker owned a T-16 skyhopper on Tatooine prior to the Battle of Yavin, as well as a small model that could be held in one's hands.[1] He would use the airspeeder's pneumatic cannon to kill womp rats. The controls were similar to Incom's T-65B X-wing starfighter, which greatly benefited Skywalker during the Battle of Yavin.[8]
