The GX12 hovervan (aka, "portable bunker") was produced by the CSA as a personnel carrier for Espos.

CharacteristicsEdit

This heavily armed and armored hovercraft was designed for open combat and used when Espo forces faced off against a legitimate threat. A turret-mounted Atgar twin blaster cannon able to hit targets 1,500 meters distant and forward grenade mortar with a range of 300 meters provided covering fire as Espo troops quickly disembarked out of side folding hatches. A rear-mounted rotating spotlight and nosepiece infrared sensor allowed for effective targeting during low-visibility conditions.[1]

The hovervan's passenger compartment had room for 16 troops along with a medic and 2-1B surgical droid. Both pilot and gunner sat in the forward cabin, which featured a retractable transparasteel canopy. There was no room to accommodate prisoners however, requiring a mobile detention wagon to accompany the hovervan.[1]
