The Sandspeeder was a variant of the Incom T-47 airspeeder utilized by the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. It was modified specifically to undergo operations in hot, dry conditions. The Drive section was left exposed for easier maintenance, although the airspeeder itself was enclosed. It also had a maximum speed of 600 kilometers per hour. They had been developed shortly after the Alliance had modified the T-47 airspeeder to operate on Hoth, leaving the modifications of the same airspeeder for arid environments relatively simple.

The Rebel base on Arda I used Vortex Squadron consisting of sandspeeders for patrolling the Guantlet canyon.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Sandspeeder was planned to be implemented into Kenner's The Epic Continues storyline, but the line had been cancelled. It was included in a binder containing several images of planned toys within The Epic Continues, some of which later appeared in the article Tales of Phantom Toys in Star Wars Galaxy Magazine. It eventually appeared in canon with the Special Saga Edition of the Customizable Card Game, as one of the light-side cards.
