The sandspeeder was a modified type of T-47 light airspeeder manufactured by Incom Corporation, and used by the armed forces of the New Republic for combat in desert environments.

Gunner was a generalized term for an individual who operated heavy weapons. The position of gunner could be found on attack vehicles such as the Defoliator Deployment Tank or onboard medium or large spacecraft. Wes Janson served as a gunner at the Battle of Hoth. Some infantry soldiers operating heavy guns were also referred to as gunners, such as the towering Gigoran mercenary Moroff, who wielded a Vulk TAU-6-23 "Blastmill" rotary blaster cannon.
