The X-34 Landspeeder is one of the many examples of the Rebellion leveraging their ingenuity and limited resources to make everyday items into warmachines. The Landspeeders are civilian vehicles mounted with jury-rigged weapons making them lightly armored, mobile, and versatile weapons platforms and fast troop transports. The Landspeeder is the Rebels second heavy unit and introduces the Transport mechanic. The Landspeeder is usually included in a list with a specific goal in mind and therefore a specialized unit.

The Landspeeder is a lightly armored transport that can be upgraded into a mobile weapons platform. its primary job is to get troops safely into position and then to harass and flank the opponents troops. It is of little value on the field and moderately difficult to remove, but able to put out a lot of suppression and disruption, making it an ideal harassing unit.
The X-34 Landspeeder: Iconic, regconizeable, expensive. Luke’s ride from A New Hope makes its appearance in Legion as a space jeep with guns bolted on.
When the Landspeeder was released, I was highly skeptical. As I mentioned in the first article I wrote about the X-34, Rebel players as a whole had been burned by the inefficient and ineffective T-47 in the Heavy role. I vowed to remain a skeptic until I had seen it in action on the table. I can happily say that, after playing five or so games with the X-34, I have warmed to it quickly and find it to be the most fun unit the Rebel faction can currently field. This multi-part series, “Ground Sliding,” is meant as a tutorial and an encouragement to try out this very fun and unique unit in your Rebel lists. In this first part, we’ll discuss why you might include a Landspeeder in your army, and how functional the craft is at its spiciest feature: transporting! Continue reading →
For the Galactic Empire, conquering a planet is only the beginning of the battle. Massive vehicles like AT-STs and elite shock troops like Imperial Death Troopers may be effective at sweeping across battlefields and capturing new territory, but they rarely stick around to hold this ground. A TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank, however, is more than enough to quell any resistance to Imperial occupation.
“For awhile now, the Legion player base has been wondering when the next Heavy Supports would be coming. The disappointing performance of the the T-47 Airspeeder has left Rebel players hungry for a new unit in that role. The T-47’s cost and relatively low defensive power have kept it grounded ever since Veers came into the picture. It was believed that Han and HQ Uplink would breathe some life into it with Reckless Diversion, but making a relatively weak platform with an already premium cost even more expensive was not a workable solution. Success with the Airspeeder remained elusive. So, given the bleak picture I’ve just presented, enter the X-34 Landspeeder, aka ‘”the floating pickup truck.'”
