Description: The RPS-6 rocket launcher was manufactured by Merr-Sonn Munitions, Inc. and used by both the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars as a portable guided/unguided anti-vehicle weapon.

The RPS-6 rocket launcher was produced by Merr-Sonn Munitions, Inc. during the time of the Clone Wars. It fired rockets from a magazine of six. The rocket was capable of destroying vehicles protected by ray shields, but were ineffective against Umbaran mobile heavy cannons.

he RPS-6 was used by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. The Royal Naboo Security Forces on the planet Naboo also used the launcher during that time period. Chrin fired one at a droid patrol.

During the Battle of Umbara, members of the 501st Legion carried the RPS-6 and fired them against Umbaran militia vehicles in a frontal assault against an airbase.
CT-7567 used one to destroy an Armored Assault Tank on Kiros.
Later on in the war, Anakin Skywalker paid Hondo Ohnaka to gun-run a supply of the latest RPS-6s to the rebels on Onderon. They were successfully fired against a quartet of Heavy Missile Platform droid gunships.
Clone troopers carried three during the battle of Scipio. They were used against Hyena-class bombers.
