The T-6 "Thunderer" was a heavy blaster pistol produced by BlasTech Industries in response to the creation of the Renegade heavy blaster pistol by the SoroSuub Corporation. The Thunderer was created with the sole purpose to surpass its rivals in pure power and allowed BlasTech Industries to claim the title "king of the blaster wars". The T-6 "Thunderer" was comparable in size and punch to a blaster carbine, or even a rifle, and was sometimes classified as such by planets that restricted those weapons. It even possessed a flip-down barrel support that allowed it to be used as a carbine. The "Thunderer" possessed no stun setting, but dealt a great deal of damage. It was often used by rogues, smugglers, and other criminals. It was regarded as the premiere off-the-shelf blaster pistol at the time of the Yuuzhan Vong War. The T-6 was classed as a "superheavy" blaster pistol, a designation which the Caliban Model X and the DT-57 heavy blaster pistol shared.
