this is the designation of Nen-Carvon's sky swooper. The R-444 is essentially a repulsor-equipped hang glider, and they are armed with a single blaster. The pilot rests in a sling, and controls the flight of the glider with hand and foot controls. The vigilance needed to concentrate on all aspects of controlling flight makes firing the blaster difficult. The R-444 were primarily used by Imperial troops on stealth raids, or on planets with difficult terrains. The overall unit measures 4 meters in length.
