Pirate Speeder Tank

Armored Assault Vehicle

Details

Description

A dangerous vehicle that features heavy armor and firepower, the speeder tank used by Hondo Ohnaka's pirate forces are sandblasted and battle-hardened combat craft used to defend their remote outpost on Florrum, and also to assault ground targets on raided worlds. An exposed gunner operates the speeder tank's primary cannon, while a second gunner provides targeting and sensor information from within the armored cabin. The pirates modify their fleet of tanks so that variations are common: some feature additional antipersonnel armaments. The two massive Podracer-like engines on the rear of the craft give the tanks impressive speed capabilities, though the thrusters themselves become obvious targets for return-fire.

During the Clone Wars, Hondo Ohnaka led a group of raucous Weequay pirates who rejoiced in plundering riches from unwary travelers. Though they excelled in deep space piracy, they also embarked on planetary raids of poorly defended worlds, using vehicles like the speeder tank and swoop bikes to carry out their attacks.

Florrum

Florrum

The parched world of Florrum served as the base of operations for Hondo Ohnaka's pirates. A well-armed fortress served as their headquarters, and a pool of speeder tanks were kept at the ready for defense. These armored vehicles were well-suited for patrol of wastelands pockmarked by dangerous sulfuric acid geysers.

AAT battle tank

AAT battle tank

While well-armed and armored, the pirate speeder tank did not pack as much firepower as a Separatist AAT. It was faster and more maneuverable than the droid-piloted assault tank, however.
