History

A wall street trader unaware of his mutant ability to persuade others to do as he wished, Robert was abducted by the Kingpin and brainwashed into working for him. He persuaded the Punisher to kill the Lobo Brothers, who were a threat to the Kingpin at the time. The plan was foiled by Spider-Man, with the Lobo brothers escaping. When Spider-Man was shot by a second gunman, he was at the mercy of the Punisher. The Persuader told the Punisher to kill Spider-Man, but the Punisher threw off the Persuader's control, and shot him to death.

The NR-N99 Persuader-class droid enforcer, colloquially known as the Corporate Alliance tank droid, CAD and the snail tank, was a tank droid constructed by the Corporate Alliance at first to silence its opposers and later to combat the Grand Army of the Republic.

Contents

Characteristics

The tank droid was a six-meter tall automaton with a huge, central drive motor for locomotion supported by four small outrigger wheels. It could also roll on its single traction drive tread. The tank droid was also equipped with a pair of large outrigger arms connected to either side of the drive motor which could be armed with almost any weapon. The Persuader-class's front featured several sensors above its twin photoreceptor eyes. Because of its forward drive motor, the tank droid was not an especially maneuverable vehicle and was very easy to engage when being flanked. To compensate for this, the tanks deployed in tightly packed waves, forming a wall of armor. At a speed of 60 kilometers per hour, the tank had no trouble ramming through walls and mowing down obstacles in its way. Civilians particularly feared the NR-N99 because unlike the Hailfire and spider droids, which would generally avoid civilian targets, the tank droid would simply crush everything in its path with merciless precision.

History

Before the Clone Wars, the tank droid was deployed by the Corporate Alliance against Outer Rim worlds that opposed its development plans or protested against its unfair business practices. It was one of the contributions of the Corporate Alliance to the droid armies of the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

During the Clone Wars, the droid enforcers were equipped with conventional ion cannons and heavy rapid fire laser cannons. For special missions, these could be replaced by concussion missile launchers, homing missiles, dumbfire torpedoes, and thermal grenade launchers.

The tank droids were used to accompany larger vehicles such as the Hailfire-class droid tanks or homing spider droids. In most battles, a pair of NR-N99s would work together to protect a homing spider droid, though three droid tanks were required to adequately defend a Hailfire droid. The droid enforcer, with its huge central wheel, could also crush to death any unfortunate enemy soldier that got into its path. The Corporate Alliance installed voice modulators into the Persuader-class late in the Clone Wars.

The Corporate Alliance tank droids participated in the Battle of Geonosis, along with many other battles during the Clone Wars, such as the Battle of Thule in the Dark Reaper Crisis, although they were lesser used than other Separatist armor. NR-N99s also participated in the Battle of Kashyyyk, where, in the role of spearheading an armored assault, they formed the bulk of the Separatist mechanized forces.

Following the execution of the Separatist Council by Darth Sidious's new apprentice, Darth Vader, all NR-N99 droid enforcers were de-activated.

Behind the scenes

The NR-N99 Persuader-class droid enforcer was originally designed to appear in Attack of the Clones.

In the game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns, this droid is featured as the Confederacy assault mechanism and is larger, slower, and more powerful than how it is seen elsewhere. This may be due to the fact it hadn't appeared in a movie yet, and its design was adopted for the game from concept art for Attack of the Clones. Alternatively, this may have been a larger design of the same basic chassis, much as the HAV/w A6 Juggernaut could be seen as a larger model of the A5.

In the game Star Wars: Battlefront II, the NR-N99's heavy rapid fire laser cannons are replaced with cannons that can shoot up to ten explosive shells at once.
