The VSKA is a general purpose medium–heavy blaster. Sanctioned armies, mercenaries, and bounty hunters throughout the galaxy favor the VSKA. It is also a solid tool for defending a homestead, particularly for settlers in the outer rim.

The Pimphand of the Galaxy and your favorite scoundrel has put together a special review and report of the VSKA blaster. He tried and tested this blaster in the harsh, freezing terrain of Hoth. Also, the Pimphand tested the blaster in different configurations at various power settings.

You might recognize this blaster as a part of the Mandalorian weapons cache discovered during Hoth Report Episode 3. Although no one knows for certain, as most of the records of Mandalore were destroyed during their civil war, most believe that Mandalorian houses and clans used the VKSA blaster and others like it.
