"We got two hours to load those bombers! Move it!" -Rebel ordinance supervisor The Rebel Munitions Speeder is a ubiquitous repulsorlift vehicle within the hangers and warehouses of the Rebel Alliance. Designed to cart cargo and personnel efficiently around Rebel bases, it's equipped with a primary wedge-shaped speeder that is controlled by a single driver and can hold a 3x4 crate in its bed, two pilots or technicians on the side, and is used to pull cargo carts behind it (in a similar way to a train). Although the amount of carts being pulled varies, it usually maxes out to three or four for efficiency reasons. Although more can be added, this would require additional puller speeders, and I have not made one with a connection at both the front and back- though it wouldn't take much to modify one. The carts being pulled can carry pilots to their craft, soldiers to ships or assembly points, cargo to various locations, and munitions to be loaded or stored; they're also equipped with clips to hold chains or tethers, and the side panels can be lifted up to help access the repulsorlifts or be raised to form a small bridge.

SW Rebel Munitions Speeder #5 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr With the bomb rack as a basis, I designed a similar missile rack. Although not shown in this picture, you can fit three more missiles in between the four shown here. In addition, the pinhole brick is there so this can be laid down on a bed of some speeder 'truck' via a stud, or swing from a technic pin; the modified tile on top is there for a similar purpose, being either clipped into place, or being hung from a hook- this is all to give some more options. SW Rebel Munitions Speeder #4 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr Although not technically part of the 'set', the crane was developed alongside the munitions speeder, and is meant to be used in conjunction with it. This was originally just an enlarged version of the crane from the 2016 Y-Wing set, with it later being changed to fit my tastes, and using parts from two of those cranes. This repulsorlift vehicle is fairly quick, and has two arms. The secondary arm in the back can be made bigger, though this may necessitate a redesign; currently it's used to pull things behind it or hang small things off its hook to be hauled around. The modified tile on the back arm can be detached and used to both move weapon racks on and off the cargo carts, as well as move astromech droids up into starfighters.
