The PTB-625 planetary bomber was a bomber that was jointly produced by the Incom Corporation and Sublight Products Corporation. With a narrow spaceframe flanked by large engines, the PTB-625 resembled other Incom/Subpro starfighters such as the Z-95 Headhunter, NTB-630 naval bomber, and the ARC-170. The PTB-625 was not as maneuverable as the NTB-630 and was designed for planetary bombardment. It was in common use by Republic Navy forces in the Outer Rim during the Clone Wars of 22 BBY.
Behind the scenesEdit
The PTB-625 bomber was first mentioned in the 2005 Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith Incredible Cross-Sections, a book detailing vehicles seen in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Later, the page mentioning the PTB-625 was reprinted in Star Wars: Complete Cross-Sections, and the bomber received a mention in the Databank entry of the ARC-170 starfighter on StarWars.com, as well as in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia entry of the NTB-630 bomber. The PTB-625 was later mentioned in 2012's The Essential Guide to Warfare, by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart. It was eventually pictured in The Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Rules Supplement Stay on Target.
