Description: Released during the Clone Wars the Buster Gunship played a similar role to the Corellian Gunship did during the Galactic Civil War, that of an overpowered and overgunned vessel requiring little crew and capable of engaging vessels many times its size. Although large for such a small crew, the interior of this vessel is still cramped due to the size requirements for the multiple turbolasers that it carries, allowing it to deal for its time what was considered to be an amazing amount of damage as well as being able to engage targets in all fire arcs due to the 3 turreted turbolasers mounted on the lower, port and starboard hull of the ship. The Buster ceased production as the Empire clamped down on heavy weapon production, and relatively few were ever sold, however these remain in use to this day with only minor updates such as heavier hull armour and more powerful turbolasers mounted aboard them to allow them to keep up with newer designs, and the Buster remains a powerful and deadly opponent even to this day.
