The -class also had many different configurations that boasted various types of weapons. Some of the configurations included heavy blaster , , or anti-personnel stun weapon batteries. The wheels' inward design gave Hailfires a wider lateral range and the ability to crush tightly grouped soldiers and small vehicles.
The Hailfire Droid, or the IG-227 Hailfire-class droid tank, was a droid mainly used in the battle of Geonosis. It was extremely fast and could destroy a Republic AT-TE Walker with one shot from its missiles. It also uses its oversized wheels to run over large groups of and other equipment. However, its main eye was very vulnerable and would explode if the eye was destroyed.
Due to the limited supply of 30 warheads for each unit, the Banking Clan retired the Hailfire from the battlefield for some time. The Clan came up with an answer to this problem, though: air-mobile that could resupply the -class droids with warheads were partnered with them on the battlefield, and once again, the -class became the scourge of slow-moving vehicles. During the Clone Wars, like many other vehicles, the Hailfire droid was re-painted in the Separatist color scheme.
Used in the Battle for Geonosis, the Hailfire Droid is an artillery droid designed for fast travel over rough terrain. It uses to navigate terrain, and is armed with shoulder-mounted rocket launchers. The 32 rockets can be identified by the thick black exhaust they leave behind. They are among the most destructive droids used in the CIS army, but have the distinct weakness of having a low ammunition capability, because they use projectile weapons rather than blasters or lasers. Whenever the droid exhausts its munitions it must retreat with only a small front laser to defend itself. After the rise of the Galactic Empire, Hailfire Droids were reprogrammed by the Rebellion to fight the evil empire during the Galactic Civil War.
