The AST-5 Armored Sentinel Transport was an atmospheric combat vehicle.
The vehicle featured two blaster cannons, each capable of swiveling 360 degrees. The vehicle had a "sentry" mode, an "attack" mode wherein the engine section would rotate to a 90-degree angle with the pilot section, and a "pursuit" mode where the engine section would rotate to a parallel position with the pilot section. It could also at least temporarily enter space.
Pilots of the AST-5 were known to include Klaatu and the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Jabba's hired enforcers also patrolled Tatooine in Armored Sentinel Transports. One of Jabba's best pilots, Wooof, utilized this vehicle.
