Usage and history


Era(s)
Affiliation
"This bounty hunter is my kind of scum. Fearless and inventive."
―Jabba the Hutt, after Boushh used a thermal detonator to renegotiate a bounty on Chewbacca's head[src]

The Merr-Sonn Munitions, Inc Class-A thermal detonator was highly illegal for anyone other than military personnel to possess. A Class-A thermal detonator had blast radius of twenty meters, making it the most powerful commercially manufactured detonator in the galaxy—however, some custom-made thermal detonators were even more powerful. The weapons cost 2,000 credits.[1] A single Class-A thermal detonator was sufficient to cause the collapse of Xizor's Palace, a huge 102-story building on Coruscant, when Lando Calrissian dropped it down the palace's garbage chute into its basement level.[6] Another Class-A detonator was used by Leia Organa, in her guise as the bounty hunter Boushh, to threaten Jabba the Hutt in her attempt to rescue Han Solo.[2] During the Galactic Civil War, Rebel soldiers tuned down the grenade's blast radius for battlefield purposes while maintaining its effectiveness.[7] Years later, the mercenary-turned Jedi Kyle Katarn used thermal detonators in his missions for the New Republic.[3] During the Yuuzhan Vong War, the Jedi Myrkr strike team used Class-A detonators in their seek-and-destroy mission.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

Class-A thermal detonators first appeared in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. In the Battlefront video game series, they serve as the primary grenades for Rebel soldiers.
