CharacteristicsEdit

Noseart of the Lucky Lekku

The gunship had nose art of a blue-skinned Twi'lek female in clone trooper armor on both its sides. It had the standard armament of a LAAT/i gunship, but it lacked the two composite-beam laser turrets that were otherwise located behind the cockpit.

HistoryEdit

Battle of TethEdit

This ship was first seen during the Battle of Teth where it launched an attack on a B'omarr Monastery, which was used by the Separatists as a hiding place for the kidnapped Rotta, the son of Jabba the Hutt. The gunship took heavy fire from several of the DSD1 dwarf spider droids stationed at the monastery, but it came out of the battle all in one piece.[5]

Battle of Rishi moonEdit

On the Rishi moon the ship was used to search for any surviving clones after the destruction of Rishi Station.[6]

Battle of RylothEdit

During the Battle of Ryloth the gunship was briefly seen in the hangar of the Resolute, the flagship of General Skywalker.[7]

Second Battle of GeonosisEdit

On Geonosis the ship was used as a troop transport to quickly deploy clone troopers to the surface of Geonosis. The gunship was one of the lucky ones, as many of the other gunships were shot down by the Geonosian proton cannons, LR1K sonic cannons and starfighters.[8]

Battle of Cato NeimoidiaEdit

During the Battle of Cato Neimoidia, the gunship was deployed to the planet to deliver Captain Rex to the battlefield.[9] By this time it had amassed at least 88 kills.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Lucky Lekku (in LEGO version) is the design set for all gunships in LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars apart from multiplayer when playing Jedi Crash as it is symbolised with the Crumb Bomber.
