|Usage and history|
The S-5 heavy blaster pistol was a versatile weapon with a heavy wooden gripstock and twin scopes for sighting and rangefinding. The S-5 also featured a dart launcher underneath the main barrel, able to fire either an anesthetic microdart or a grappling hook tip. The latter was used in conjunction with a liquid-cable shooter attachment; a quick customization that turned the S-5 pistol into a durable ascension gun. The cable reservoir held enough liquid to form twenty meters of cable, and the spike launcher itself cost around 50 Republic Credits around the time of the Invasion of Naboo.
The S-5 blaster pistol was used extensively during the Battle of Naboo. Captain Panaka carried one such weapon during the fighting, though other members of the Royal Security Force wielded Naboo officer's pistols, a variation on the S-5 design. Panaka's nephew, Gregar Typho, carried one of these weapons while serving as Senator Padmé Amidala's bodyguard. The expensive, prestige blaster design was later seen in use during the Clone Wars, in the hands of Jedi General Bardan Jusik during an anti-terrorist operation on Coruscant.
This appears to be a scoped and slightly modified Beeman/FWB C55 air pistol.
