The Variable Altitude Republic Patrol Vehicle (VA RPV) was a Kuat Drive Yards design used by the Republic Judicial Department forces that guarded penal colonies such as Oovo IV. Each one was equipped with three mechanical arms. on each one was a missile launcher. On the underside were 2 dual laser cannon turrets and another missile launcher. It was also where the cockpit was. Jango Fett encountered one of these, while trying to steal a Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft, during the Oovo IV Uprising. Fett destroyed its weapons, and sent it crashing into the place it was deployed from.
