Background and History
The Amphibious Interstellar Assault Transport/infantry (AIAT/i) was a gunship used by the Galactic Republic's Judicial Forces, as well as Mandalorian troops, as a troop transport over three decades before the Battle of Geonosis.
The AIAT/i gunship was 31.5 meters long, 12.5 meters high, and had a 30-meter wingspan, with three decks - command, engineering, and cargo. It was propelled by a pair of oversized sublight engines, and could carry either 300 cubic meters of cargo or 50 troops, one repulsorlift assault vehicle, four speeder bikes, one IM-6 battlefield medical droid, and six prisoners. It was well armed and armored, and was capable of landing on water.
