Background

Durable if not stylish, the X-34 landspeeder featured holographic displays, a computer for ground navigation, and a number of repulsor counterbalances for smooth and steady travel over rough terrain. Its maximum altitude was 1 meter (100 cm), but its usual cruising altitude was roughly 10 cm above ground level. It utilized three turbine engines to propel the vehicle forward. Its repulsorfield generator housing was located behind the cockpit. Its power circuit was located in front of the cockpit.

The X-34 retailed for roughly 10,550 credits new, 2,500 used. It was light and unarmored and lacked weapon mounts, making it unsuitable for military applications, unlike the Flash speeder or the Rebel combat speeder, also manufactured by SoroSuub.

The open-air landspeeder could be piloted through the use of a steering wheel and foot pedals, and featured a retractable duraplex windscreen. In addition, the vehicle cockpit featured holographic displays as well as a computer for ground navigation.

The popularity of the X-34 waned considerably when SoroSuub began manufacture of the XP-38 sport landspeeder, a similar but sleeker model.

Luke Skywalker repaired his X-34 only a short time before he sold it to Wioslea.

By 137 ABY X-34s were still employed. Imperial Moff Nieve Gromia provided agent Gunn Yage with a 4-seater version to help her infiltrate Mos Eisley.
