In 1 BBY, Imperial combat assault tanks were deployed on Lothal during the Empire's occupation on the Outer Rim world.[4] They assisted in hunting down[5] and capturing members of the Rebel Alliance's resistance cell.[6]

Behind the scenes[]

The TX-225 GAVr Occupier hovertank was initially created and developed for the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, the idea of a hovertank was abandoned in early stages of production, changed instead to the non-repulsorlift TX-225 GAVw. Despite this, the former name was mistakenly used in several toy lines.[7]
