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.[7]

During the Galactic Civil War, LAAT/is were used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic against Imperial garrisons.[3]

A variant of this gunship, the Low Altitude Assault Transport/carrier, was often used to transport a single All Terrain Tactical Enforcer.[5] Another version was modified to function within the vacuum of space.[8] After the First Battle of Geonosis several LAAT/i gunships were modified by removing the side-mounted turrets in order to make more room for the sliding doors.

Years after the Clone Wars, another model of low-altitude transport, the low-altitude Imperial transport, was used by the remnant of the Galactic Empire led by Grand Moff Lozen Tolruck on the planet Kashyyyk.[9]
