The Amphibious Interstellar Assault Transport/infantry, usually referred to as the AIAT/i, is the predecessor of the LAAT gunships, produced over three decades before the Battle of Geonosis. Unlike the LAAT's, the AIAT/i is a gunship with interstellar range, able to travel from planet to planet. It was meant to replace the aging Meteor-class Q-Carrier.
The AIAT/i is 31.5 meters long, 12.5 meters high, and has a 30-meter wingspan. It can carry either 350 cubic meters of cargo or else 50 troops, 1 repulsorlift assault vehicle, 4 speeder bikes, and 1 IM-6 medical droid. It has a number of weapons and was used by the Republic Judicial Forces as a troop transport, capable of landing on water.
