The 2-M Saber-class repulsor tank or 2-M repulsor tank was a ground-based fighter tank produced by Rothana Heavy Engineering and used by the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War to combat Rebel armor and infantry.

DescriptionEdit

Like the earlier TX-130S and TX-130T tank models, the 2-M tank was outfitted with deflector shields and a repulsorlift drive often augmented by the additional power boosters carried onboard as backup to the main repulsorlift battery. It was armed with a powerful rotating medium laser cannon, an anti-infantry cannon, and dual missile launchers.[2] Because of its high armament, it was able to provide cover for stormtroopers and had space for one squad of troopers. It was almost useless in forest and mountain environments due to its wide shape.

HistoryEdit

Based on the design of the TX-130T fighter tank, itself an upgraded version of the TX-130 Saber-class fighter tank, the 2-M was designed to counteract Rebel deployment of the T2-B repulsor tank. Initial field tests proved the 2-M was superior to that earlier model.[2]

Despite the 2-M's tactical advantage over the Rebel T2-B, their expense and periods of long maintenance led to limited use of the 2-M tank during the Galactic Civil War.[2]
