Homebrew Reference Book: Clone Wars Saga Edition Fan Sourcebook - Vehicles and Vessels
In an effort to improve the AML Platform when the Trade Federation expressed their dissatisfaction, Baktoid Armor Workshop provided an upgrade kit that added more armor plating, upgraded control software, and an additional missile tube. While this made the vehicle slightly more formidable, the increase in cost in comparison to the dependable "Vulture" Droid Starfighter made sure the HAML never caught on. When the Clone Wars began, the Trade Federation was only too glad to donate their stockpile of the ill-designed repulsorcraft, only to find that the Banking Clan’s IG-227 Hailfire-Class Droid Tank was much more lethal on the battlefield, due to its significantly larger payload.
The HAML is very well armored, typically allowing it to survive an aerial assault long enough to reload its launchers once. Its weapon system was considered a backward step in missile technology in that it was specialized. Most missile and torpedo systems in the galaxy are equally capable of targeting ground, air and space units, but the HAML launcher is specifically tailored for surface to air warfare. The launcher rises to fire, but is often lowered for storage.
