Catapults were tracked artillery vehicles used by the Wookiees on the planet Kashyyyk. Heavy Catapults were their upgraded versions. Two Catapults under the command of the Wookiee Attichitcuk joined with a Rebel Alliance strike force to recover a Jedi artifact, the Vor'Na'Tu, soon after the Battle of Yavin in 0 ABY. The vehicles also saw action during the Liberation of Kashyyyk in 4 ABY. They were constructed at factories at a cost of fifty units of carbon and ninety units of nova crystals. The Catapults were armed with one energy cannon and the Heavy Catapults with two.
