in ~ the beginning of the beach component of Rogue One, two stormtroopers are mentioning something the they to speak is gift rendered obsolete, followed by "It was around time".

You are watching: T-17 star wars

It sounded like AT18, i m sorry is not a thing. It cannot be one AT-TE, as in Star Wars: Rebels that is useless already. What was it?



It"s referring to the T-16 skyhopper. It"s the airship Luke owns in illustration four. When they say that there is a replacement they especially say the T-15. In A brand-new Hope you likewise see Luke playing with a model of it.


Is it? i mean, Luke "used to bullseye womp rats in T-16 earlier home, they're not lot bigger than two meters. "
I think they"re mentioning the VT-16. This is the same topic the Stormtroopers in A brand-new Hope comment on while Obi-Wan Kenobi is disabling the tractor beam.

Curiously the Wookieepedia article suggests this is a droid seen in Return the the Jedi. Personally I"d dispute that as it appears an odd thing for Stormtroopers come discuss, and I"d assume the VT-16 and also BT-16 are different things. However the link above does quote the conversation from A brand-new Hope.

EDIT: after ~ a second viewing they absolutely say T-15. I now believe the quote ~ above Wookieepedia is misplaced, and that those Stormtroopers space actually stating the T-16, not VT-16.

This line in Rogue One was reportedly a mis-quote by the voice actors the somehow made it into the perfect film. They were trying come back-reference the heat from A new Hope complaining around the famously useless VT-16 (an item that has actually no canon existence various other than to be complained about).

“Without saying a word, there is no being dubbed upon, and also without evenlooking at each other, Sam and I stood up from ours chairs and also walkedup to the array of microphones in prior of the movie screen. Matthewsaid, ‘Okay, we need some sort of stormtrooper dialogue here,guys . . . Oh, looks prefer you’re ready, let’s go for it.’

“Sam spoke first, and also I speak second, moving the line around T-15sbeing do obsolete. He reacted in that an excellent trooper monotone, andthen we both performed a vocal for being taken down by rebels. Theroom laughed. We did a second take, and that was it. The whole thingwent down in much less than two minutes.

structure of two stormtroopers having a conversation about the useless T-15. The exchange was intended to set up the conversation overheard throughout A brand-new Hope regarding the brand-new VT-16. However, the Rogue One conversation identifies the previous model as a T-15, incorrectly calling out the letters as the would link the two references.

We deserve to assume that the VT-15 is additionally a non-object that troopers complain around periodically (although I"ve heard that the T-17 is walking to be a vast improvement).
