"Are the speeders ready?"
"Not yet. We're having some trouble adapting them to the cold."
Han Solo and Tigran Jamiro[7]

The T-47 airspeeder, also known as the T-47 light airspeeder, was a craft manufactured by Incom Corporation. They were modified by the Rebel Alliance into snowspeeders.


"No, no, not the T-47! I can fly anything, but that doesn't mean I want to. Piloting the T-47 is like steering a block of wood."
Poe Dameron[5]

"Yeah, well, we're not soldiers. Those speeders are for hauling sewage."
―Sully Stark[8]

Rebel T-47s attempt to bring down an AT-AT during the Battle of Hoth

A small, wedge-shaped vehicle, the Alliance snowspeeder was a two-person craft crewed by a pilot and a rear-facing tailgunner, with a top speed of 1,100 kph. It had two forward-facing heavy laser cannons and a harpoon cannon placed in the rear and manned by the tailgunner.

In 9 BBY,[12] T-47s were used to haul sewage but saw use by the Hidden Path. When Obi-Wan Kenobi and Tala Durith rescued Leia Organa, Sully Stark and Wade Resselian helped them escape from Fortress Inquisitorius by strafing the stronghold's landing platform in their T-47s.[8]

During the Galactic Civil War, the Partisans had access to T-47s during their insurgency on Jedha.[9] During the Battle of Hoth, Rebel Alliance snowspeeders used tow cables to disable All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) walkers by firing the tow cable and chasing it out around the walker's legs, stopping its locomotion and immobilizing the walker.[2]
