The TX-225 GAVr "Occupier" combat assault tank was a hovertank ground assault vehicle used by the Galactic Empire. The secondary model of Rothana Heavy Engineering's TX-225 Occupier series, unlike its counterpart, the TX-225 GAVw, the GAVr utilized repulsorlifts instead of treads as its main propulsion system.[1] It was deployed on Lothal.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

The TX-225 GAVr Occupier hovertank was initially created and developed for the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, the idea of a hovertank was abandoned in early stages of production, changed instead to the non-repulsorlift TX-225 GAVw. Despite this, the former name was mistakenly used in several toy lines.[6]
