Droch-class boarding ship

The Droch-class boarding ship, also known as the pod hunter and the Separatist boarding craft and nicknamed "juicers" by the Allies' clone troopers, was a model of boarding craft used by the Axis and built by the Colicoid Creation Nest.

The Colicoid makers of the Droch-class based its design on the toothspike raptor of Colla IV.[2]

The Droch-class was armed with a large set of four spikes arranged around the cockpit, that were used to crush an object trapped inside the array,[4] which led the Galactic Republic's clone troopers to name the ships "juicers."[6] These four spikes also could be used to pierce the hull of a ship and deploy a boarding party.[7] It usually carried a few rocket battle droids. The pilot sat on top of the vehicle, and it could be used as a local transport for several troops, which entered and exited from a central passenger compartment.[4] The boarding craft was lightly armed, with a number of light laser cannons.[1] The versatile troop transport could be used to capture enemy starships relatively intact, to be later used in covert missions.[1]
