The GR-75 medium transport was a transport used by the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War.[8] They were used since the early rebellion where one of them got destroyed on a supply mission[9] and two more got destroyed in the Battle of Atollon.[10] At least ten served at the Battle of Scarif.[11] Thirty of them served as an escape craft to evacuate the rebels from an assault on Hoth where only thirteen got away, and at least sixteen[source?] also participated in the decisive Battle of Endor.[12] The transport had a small bridge near the rear and had deflector shields.[9]

By the time of the cold war, several GR-75 medium transports were in the service of Jinata Security, which were modified with additional laser cannons.[6]

Behind the scenesEdit

The GR-75 transport first appeared in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. Ultimate Star Wars, published on April 28, 2015, identifies it as the GR-75 transport, but the official Databank entry lists it as a "GR-75 medium transport."

During production of The Empire Strikes Back, they were nicknamed "tuna ships," and the model had a slight pink cast.[13] Despite being transports, they were included in the battle scenes of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi because more ships were needed, but no in-universe explanation of their presence has been given.[14]
