Description: The Imperial Troop Transport (ITT), also known as a K79-S80, RTT or Recon transport, was a boxy repulsorlift ground assault vehicle used by the Galactic Empire. Developed by Ubrikkian Industries, it was used to either move Imperial stormtroopers in, or to move prisoners out. Despite not being designed for combat, the Imperial Troop Transport was fitted with two forward laser guns, and one dorsal twin laser turret.

The ITT was a long, box-shaped repulsorcraft with a plating of grey metal. It fell under the category of ground assault vehicles.

Because of its repulsorlift engine, a hovering ITT emitted a distinct noise that made it recognizable from a distance. Two pilots and a commanding officer rode in the vehicle's cab, the bow of which was equipped with a transparisteel viewport, while up to six individuals rode on the sides of the vehicle in exposed racks, the doors of which were auto-locking. The ITT also contained a hatch in the mid-section of the vehicle that lead inside.

It measured 8.7 meters long by 3.5 high by 4.5 wide, and weighed 20,600 kilograms Its maximum speed was 150 kilometers per hour.

Although not designed as an infantry fighting vehicle, the ITT was still armed with two forward laser guns, and a single dorsal laser turret. Thanks to its ample firepower, the transport could deter most attackers. However, insertion of a foreign body in the barrel of an ITT's laser gun would cause it to explode upon firing.

The primary function of the Imperial Troop Transport was to move stormtroopers between important locations in times of conflict. A single transport could carry at least one squad of such troops. Likewise, ITTs were also used to forcibly relocate prisoners, including farmers whose land had been seized by the government. On at least one occasion, an ITT's side racks were used to transport food supplies.

The Imperial Troop Transport was designed for the Galactic Empire by Ubrikkian Industries. Eight years after the end of the Clone Wars, the Empire deployed several ITTs on Gorse to track a transporter crewed by Hera Syndulla, Kanan Jarrus and Skelly, three individuals who had attempted to kill the Imperial Count Denetrius Vidian. Although the Troop Transports successfully located and attacked their target, the rebels still managed to escape thanks to the use of explosives and some risky maneuvers performed by Syndulla.

In 3272 LY, an Imperial unit stationed on Lothal used an ITT to transport a supply of meilooruns bought in the city of Kothal. The young Ezra Bridger, a street urchin affiliated with the Spectres, attempted to steal meilooruns from the transport, but was spotted by stormtroopers while inspecting the fruit. Shortly thereafter, Supply Officer Yogar Lyste used three ITTs to attack the farm of Morad Sumar. The farmer, his wife and an Aqualish employee were subsequently captured and put in one of the ITTs' compartments, but were rescued by Bridger and his partner Garazeb Orrelios.

The transports continued use throughout the Early rebellion, and throughout the Galactic Civil War. At least one of these transports was used at the battle of Jakku, the last stand of the Empire.

Where is the dorsal twin laser turret supposed to be? I've looked all over the top of the vehicle and don't see anything resembling it.

Is this possibly a cargo variant where the laser turret has been removed from the top of the vehicle to enable it to carry more cargo?

I guess it either retracts into the body when required, or was removed for cargo transport in the picture.

I think the "cargo variant" idea may be correct. I think I remember seeing the turret before. But also, the three slots on the sides in the pic that have cargo, these were often used in the Rebels series for either binding prisoners, or to carry extra troops who could use their blasters to defend the tank.
