|Usage and history|
Single-being aerial travel
The HK-47 personal jetpack consisted of a shell colored in HK-47's preferred shade of rusty red, with a pair or rocket thrusters flanking a core shaped somewhat like HK-47's head. A viewscreen displaying HK-47's original droid form was placed in the center of the jetpack's body, above a grill similar to the droid's vocabulator and red lights resembling his photoreceptors.
The jetpack was worn on the back of a humanoid form and used to propel the being through the air.
At some point during or prior to 1.5 ABY, HK-47's body was reconfigured into a jetpack. This was done over his strenuous objections. During the Galactic Civil War, the jetpack came into the possession of a spacer.
