Luke’s Landspeeder – an easy to recognize classic.

A landspeeder was a hovering ground-based vehicle capable of traveling across most terrain at relatively high speed. It was the successor to the hanno speeder.

Low-power repulsorlifts allowed most landspeeders to constantly hover one to two meters above the ground, both when stationary and while traveling. Turbine jet engines were responsible for propelling the vehicle forward. Some landspeeders also mounted weapons which were usually mounted either at the front of the craft or above and behind the pilot and/or passengers. [SOURCE]
