The Hutt Cartel employs a wide variety of starships, vehicles, and weapons, few of which are considered standard issue. Their fleet is largely a ragtag assemblage of pirate cruisers, modified mining ships and freighters, and an odd assortment of outdated fighter craft. Much of their naval strength was lost during their foray into Bothan Space, including those vessels they had previously repossessed from the Chiss Ascendancy. Taking a step back, the Cartel has become much less reliant on their military forces and more focused on their criminal connections and what they can achieve through them.

A combat speeder dating back to the Clone Wars, the Hutt Cartel were one of the first to purchase them in bulk when Aratech released a newer model. They can be found in use all throughout Hutt Space, even on the capital world of Nal Hutta. They can reach speeds as high as one hundred kilometers per hour.
VL-9 Blaster Carbine
Desh (external plating), Iron (framework & internal components)
Length: 76.2 cm
Ammunition/Power Cell Capacity
20 (per blaster cartridge)
An inexpensive, mass produced blaster carbine used to arm Hutt thugs and militia members, the VL-9 trades ammunition and power cell capacity for a more damaging blaster bolt. It requires regular maintenance and overheats quite easily, but it serves its operators well enough during battle to warrant its continued production. More importantly, though, it costs less than two hundred credits to manufacture.
