A Hover Platform was a small, disk shaped repulsorlift platform used by a single operator. The craft was controlled by a control panel extending from its base, and it contained three repulsorlifts.
During the early stages of the Galactic Civil War, the Sith Lord Darth Vader utilized such a platform, colored black, while personally leading a segment of Imperials to conduct a raid on the Star Tours space station, after the discovery of a Rebel spy on one of the StarSpeeder 1000 transports.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Hover Platform also came as part of an action figure set by Hasbro, known as Ambush at Star Tours, where it came with Darth Vader, two Skytroopers, and Boba Fett, even though Fett never actually appears in the segment the set is based on.
