The AV-21's top speed and acceleration rate matched that of a Zephyr-G swoop. It also came in roughly sixteen different paint jobs.
It was specialized for straight-line speed. The forward hull was wedge-shaped, and the cockpit was in the middle. The rear was dominated by the control surfaces and double ion thruster. All the panels were precision-made to be aerodynamically efficient.
The AV-21 was highly sought after by racers and the wealthy elite. Each craft was almost completely hand-built in a special Mobquet facility. To purchase one, the waiting list was over a standard year long. If one was sold, it often went for 2-4 times the standard price.
It was assumed by the Galactic Empire to be a prototype for a fast attack vehicle developed by the Alliance to Restore the Republic. In addition, the Empire had access to schematics for the landspeeder, one of which was provided to an Imperial-aligned spacer by the Zabrak Imperial Colonel Darkstone as a reward for saving Doctor Bledsoe.
Behind the scenesEdit
The AV-21 is a rare vehicle in Star Wars Galaxies because the parts required to build it are somewhat difficult to obtain. Players can generally purchase a single AV-21 for anywhere between 2 to 3 million credits. The parts required are obtained from the "Corellian Corvette" missions.
In SWG, the AV-21 manages up to 17 meters per second in speed. It should be noted that speeders travel much slower in the game than they do in the films and other games.
