So the old Sandspeeder is now the new Sandspeeder.  Sandspeeders are widely used on Beaches, dusty, sandy deserts and can ven perform well in small sand dunes.  It is mostly used as a transport for troop squads, deploying search & patrol droids and a special vehicle for high ranking officers.  It even does well in mud since it uses repulsorlift technology to get around.  The rollbar on top protects the passengers from light overturns caused by light grenades & explosives, and the occasional mis-use.  The Sandspeeder can be fitted with a variety of weapons, that are fitted to the underbelly of the craft.  The vehicle in this type of mission is mostly fitted with repeating blasters for anti-infantry work.  The sides along with the rollbar are sturdy and made with the hardest material available to the Republic and Rothana Heavy Engineering, a sub group of Kuat Drive Yards.  The engine is located at the back of the craft so any ammunition fired against it when the craft is head-on doesn't blow up and injure itself or others around it.

I guess this looks the same from both sides?
If so then you don't need to post another side picture, if there is a difference then you have to post another picture.
"Hoah"?

Another great MOC, CCD7.

It reminds of an ISP with the rollbar on top between the troopers and an armoured front. Is that and 'arm' on the back, or just decoration?

It looks great. Good luck in the contest!

Very unique build.  :thumbup:  It looks a lot like the clone speeder that was in the wookiee attack set, but still, good job. I wish you luck in the voting.

To be honest the vehicle doesn't look really suited for deserts I would think mountains as a better landscape

Yes Kimt, it is symmetrical, but I'll take more photos anyway! :tongue: As always, you can find more pictures in my signature, or at CloneCommanderDelta7 at brickshelf.

It is nicknamed Sandspeeder, but its official designation is a LAT.
