The Prowler is a Tevarin-designed combat personnel carrier built with air-shielded rapid deployment doors. Its name comes from the United Planets of Earth (UPE) designation for the original armored carrier initially observed during the First Tevarin War(2541-2546). The Prowler was utilized again in the Second Tevarin War(2603-2610), until the Tevarin were defeated by the United Empire of Earth (UEE). Prowlers that had not been lost in the war were destroyed during the Tevarin Purge. In the 2940s, Esperia obtained Tevarin spacecraft and other material from a cache of original Tevarin artifacts recovered in the Kabal System, leading the company to develop a modernized Human-manufactured recreation of the craft.
