|DLT-19a Blaster Rifle|
The DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle was a popular weapon produced by BlasTech Industries that saw use during the time of the Galactic Empire.
The DLT-19 was not as popular or as well-known as the standard-issue E-11 blaster rifle, because it took longer to assemble and load. However the DLT-19 was much more powerful and had a much greater range than the E-11 model. The E-11s sniper rifle bore a striking resemblance to this weapon with the addition of a scope. In this configuration it could shoot down swoops, or even light airspeeders.
It was commonly carried by Imperial stormtroopers and army troopers. It was also used by Imperial security details because of its long-range capabilities. It was these capabilities that made it a common sight on Imperial controlled planets with large, clear, open areas, like Tatooine.
