These speeders were used to carve out space inside the caves of Echo Base. Their laser cannons could also be used to protect the hangars, if needed. Luke Skywalker manned such a craft to defend Echo Base from a wampa attack.
Behind the scenesEdit
One of these units was briefly seen in the left corner of the screen when Han Solo rode into a hangar at the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back. A cut scene also showed Luke Skywalker using a speeder of this type to fight off wampas. One of these were featured in a LEGO Star Wars battlepack that included several Hoth Rebel Troopers, along with dual flick firing rocket launchers.
