The Imperial Army commissioned the Aratech 64-Y Swift 3 Repulsor Sled as a response to the increase in swoop gang and pirate activity in The Outer Rim. Swoops could easily outrun the Aratech 74-Z Speeder Bike used by Scout Troopers, and their small size allowed them to move through terrain too tight for Airspeeders or Starfighters.
This Repulsor Sled, however, was built to match the speed of even the fastest swoops. Unlike the older (And more dangerous) swoops and Podracers, the Repulsor Sled gets the majority of its thrust from overpowered repulsor generators rather than ion engines. As a result, the sled is much safer and easier to use than its competition. In addition to its front-mounted Blaster Cannon, the Swift 3 carries a powered Drop Net that can entangle and ionize a target for easy capture.
