"You hit one proton bomb, and you'll touch off the whole magazine."
―Sabine Wren, to Garazeb Orrelios[src]

Proton bombs were powerful explosive weapons carried by bomber craft such as BTL-A4 Y-wing starfighters and TIE/sa bombers. Some of the bombs themselves were spherical in appearance,[2] while in cylindrical storage containers they could also be used as high yield explosives capable of producing great damage to heavily armored vehicles such as an AT-AT.[3]

Clone WarsEdit

During the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems' Navy used Hyena-class bombers that carried proton bombs[4] during the Battle of Christophsis.[5] The Galactic Republic Navy's Y-wing bombers also used proton bombs extensively during the War.[6]During the Ryloth Campaign,[7] the Separatist forces occupying Nabat deployed a battery of 5 proton cannons to prevent the Republic's forces from landing. These cannons fired proton bombs that destroyed both gunships and transports.[1] The Separatists used these cannons and their bombs during the second battle of Geonosis.[8]
