T-47 Airspeeder

From Age of Rebellion

Initially designed as a cargo tender and shipyard tug, the T-47 is a rugged, wedge-shaped airspeeder that is both reliable and easy to modify. Built for low altitude work, this vehicle seats two crew members back to back in a cramped but well laid out cockpit, with the pilot facing forward and the systems operator facing aft. While ostensibly an industrial labor vehicle, the T-47 was designed with an eye toward end-user modification. Numerous redundant systems, universal power couplings, and modular data input areas allow the vehicle’s abilities and systems to be tailored to many tasks, including combat. The Rebel Alliance uses modified T-47s as fast ground attack airspeeders. Loaded with heavy blaster cannons and heavy armor, they make excellent fighter-craft despite their low altitude, and they have shown a surprising ability to operate in extremes of heat and cold with little problem.

From Edge of the Empire

Incom’s T-47 is a powerful, low-altitude airspeeder. This low-profile, wedge-shaped airspeeder seats its two crew back-to-back in a cramped but well laid-out cockpit with the pilot facing forward and the systems operator facing aft. The T-47 draws power from Karydee’s reliable KD49 repulsorlift engine, which gives it immense towing power while providing better than average speed and agility. Supplementing the KD49 is one of Incom’s 5i.2 ion afterburners, which provides extra thrust when needed.

Like many of Incom’s products, the T-47s were designed with an eye to end-user modification. In this case, Incom designers felt that since the industrial and commercial economies of the galaxy are so varied, a vehicle designed to work in these environments should be easily adaptable to any job or environment. The speeder’s repulsorlift engine produces an immense amount of power, and combined with a number of redundant electrical systems and a modular design, the T-47 can easily handle both the weight and power demands of aftermarket modifications. Incom itself sells a number of modification packages for the T-47, as do a number of smaller manufacturers. It’s also rumored that some paramilitary and insurgent forces in the galaxy have modified these stout vehicles with weapons and heavy armor, a rumor not outside the realm of possibility, but one that is officially denied by Incom.

Electromagnetic Harpoon

Mounted in a remote-operated turret aft of the cockpit, the T-47’s electromagnetic harpoon was designed with towing in mind. Controlled by the speeder’s systems operator, or by the pilot in a pinch, the harpoon consists of a pneumatic cannon that launches a short durasteel rod connected to a few dozen yards of high-tensile braided cable. The rod is tipped with a powerful electromagnetic disc that receives its power through the harpoon’s cable, which is in turn connected to a powerful winch located in the hull beneath the cannon. While not a weapon per se, the harpoon can be used to knock down personnel or droids, move obstacles, ensnare large creatures or vehicles, and generally create havoc, hence its Knockdown and Ensnare qualities.
