The Gian speeder is a repulsorlift vehicle used by Naboo's volunteer security force for crowd control and urban defense. It is a heavier design than the sleek Flash speeder. The open-air canopy seats four soldiers. Flanking the sides of the craft are standard laser cannons. Modified models come equipped with a hood-mounted laser cannon capable of penetrating the armor of a Trade Federation battle tank.
Lothal is a diverse planet, with both farmland and a city center. During the age of the Empire, it fell under Imperial occupation, as farmers were kicked off their land and enormous TIE fighter and weapons factories were built. While most of the population felt powerless in the face of Imperial rule, a select few dared to fight back.
