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.

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.[7]
