Rebel Snowspeeder

Rebel Snowspeeder


Theme: Star Wars

Year: 2010



Chosen for their small size and quick maneuverability, T-47 airspeeders were modified into snowspeeders by the Rebel Alliance to defend the secret outpost Echo Base on the snow planet Hoth. Upon discovery by Imperial forces, the main snowspeeder unit, Rogue Group, commanded by Luke Skywalker, was charged with holding off the Imperial invasion until Echo Base could be evacuated. With forward cannons ineffective against the thick armor of the Imperial AT-AT walkers, Skywalker's team used the snowspeeders' harpoons and tow cables to ensnare the walkers' legs and bring them down during the explosive opening sequence of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
