    The GX12 Hovervan is slower than a groundcruiser but is more heavily armed and armoured, and provides safe transport for an assault squad in full riot gear. When Espo ground forces know they are facing a legitimate threat, they call in the Hovervan or "portable bunkers" as civilians call them. They are designed for open combat confrontations. The Hovervan has side folding hatches for quick debarkation. The top twin blaster turret is used to lay down suppression fire while Espo troops run for cover and if necessary, for the Medics to drag casualties into safety into the vehicle. Unlike some Imperial assault vehicles, the Hovervan has no facility for prisoners. Instead, prisoners are put into a Jailspeeder. The GX12 also sports front and rear mounted rotating spot-lights and a nosepiece infrared sensor for detecting targets in darkness or low visibility conditions. The retractable transparisteel canopy provides cover for the pilot and gunner, who sit in the forward cabin.
