Released alongside the base game of Star Wars: Legion, the Airspeeder is a heavy unit which will fight alongside your Rebel army and give you the option to take down some of the heavier units arranged against you.
The Airspeeder can’t be hit in close combat, but I’m sure a few rockets might be able to bring it down. However, it’s speed gives it a basic Cover 1 allowing it to shrug off most fire aimed at it. It is also armed with some dangerous cannons which can rip up the ground and cause havoc for vehicles and units alike.
One of the cool things that the Airspeeder can do is that it chooses a harpoon for its rear weapon. This can then be fired at vehicles whereby you can then yank them into a new position, twisting them around to take them out of the action slightly. You won’t be doing a lot of killing with that harpoon but it could give you the tactical edge you need.
Are you going to snap one up when the game is released?
