The A280 Blaster rifle produced by BlasTech Industries, was a blaster rifle used by the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War and was considered to be one of the best armor-piercing blasters of the Galactic Civil War.

CharacteristicsEdit

Though much heavier than Imperial-issue rifles such as the E-11, the A280 was a sturdy weapon and was reputed to be able to cut a fully-armored stormtrooper in half at medium range. Its galven circuits were clustered near the focusing crystal, giving the weapon a slight bulge at the midsection. This also provided the A280 with more power over a longer range.

HistoryEdit

During the final years of the Republic the A280 was standard issue rifle for the Planetary Security Forces.The A280 was the standard blaster rifle for Ranulph Tarkin's Republic Outland Regions Security Force. After the Declaration of a New Order The A280 became available for the Black market. Several of these rifles were stolen by Konrad Janse for the Alliance to Restore the Republic when he left BlasTech shortly before the Battle of Endor. Although the Alliance had already been using these weapons prior to this battle.
