The Hover Tank was originally developed by the Genesis Corporation under Director KiltJoy, head of the R&D Department at the time of the Hover Tanks development. It was developed as a mercenary equivalent of the AT-ST being fielded by the Galactic Empire. Later when Genesis Corporation was made a subsidiary of Black Sun sales were limited to just the Black Sun and her affiliates making the galaxy perhaps safer than she otherwise would be.

While unable to face up to AT-AT's and similar heavy vehicles it is able to counter smaller starfighters with it's medium lasers as well as take out infantry with it's light blaster. A concussion grenade launchers provides enough firepower to take out medium sized vehicles as well as to hold its own in a firefight. While not as fast as other battle vehicles it can easily outrun heavier enemies and also overtake infantry. In short what it cannot beat it can outrun. Heavier than standard armour has been fitted to this vehicle to increase it's durability. It is for these reasons that it is the vehicle of choice for Black Sun. It can transport up to 3 passengers and while uncomfortable, guarantees you will stay alive and reach your destination intact.
