The tenth book in Del Rey's Essential Guide series, Star Wars: The New Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology was the updated version of The Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology. This book featured new full color and three-dimensional illustrations of over two hundred different devices, ranging from thermal detonators and Wookiee bowcasters to Lobot's cyborg implant and the Empire's superweapon devices. The book added many devices from The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and The New Jedi Order series of books.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Aurebesh writing on the page about Darth Vader's armor translates as "Sith Trooper Armor". Similarly on the page about Vonduun crab armor, the Aurebesh at the bottom of the page translates to "A Vonduun Crab Shell-Plated Armor Sith Speeder". The Sun Crusher affiliation is said to be Admiral Natasi Daala. This is an error, as the Empire never used it in battle.
