The Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry (LAAT/i), also known as the Low Altitude Assault Transport, Republic attack gunship or Assault Gunship, was a gunship used by the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. Its role was to transport troopers as well as offering air-to-ground and air-to-air support for the Republic against the Separatists.[2] After the formation of the Galactic Empire, the remaining LAAT/is were absorbed into the Imperial Navy.[4]

During the Galactic Civil War, LAAT/is were used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic against Imperial garrisons.[5]

A variant of this gunship could be used to transport a single All Terrain Tactical Enforcer.[3] Another version was modified to function within the vacuum of space.[6] Between the First Battle of Geonosis and the Battle of Coruscant, most LAAT/i gunships lacked the distinctive side-mounted turrets, in order to make more room for the sliding doors. Late in the Clone Wars, however, the side turrets had been reintroduced to virtually all operating gunships.
