Anti-aircraft guns were artillery emplacements stationed on battlefields, such as Mygeeto, to neutralize air targets in the area. They were especially useful in the defense of landing platforms.

HistoryEdit

At the start of the Clone Wars an AA gun was used to protect a Lucrehulk-class core ship. The clone commandos of Delta Squad destroyed the AA gun then they proceeded to disable the core ship. Several more were mounted on platforms during the Battle of Bespin. The Bespin version was used to shoot down incoming Confederacy of Independent Systems Vulture droids and MAF gunships, until they were taken over by battle droids and used against Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptors and LAAT/is.

They were also common during the Galactic Civil War both the Rebels and the Empire used AA turrets to destroy aerial vehicles. Numerous other factions used AA such as the Hutt Cartel. The Empire utilized the advantages of the AA on their AT-AA.
