The AA-9 was originally used by Coruscant to ferry massive amounts of people across the planet and throughout the galaxy. Thanks to the large cargo capacity of 75,000 Tons, it served its purpose well. During the Clone Wars, the ships uses also spanned out to carrying cargo as well as ferrying troops and support personnel between non-hostile planets. Because of the lack of weaponry, despite its lone tractor beam, it was almost never used for combat situations unless guarded in convoys. Eventually, after the Clone Wars, the ship became used for civilian purposes once again and many went under the ownership of private denizens.
