X-VIPER (eXtreme Velocity Ion-Powered EndureR)
The fastest prototypical space/air/landcraft in the galaxy.
About this creation
The vast, desolate landscape of the planet Kuntertahp is no longer the home of the Imperial Empire's headquarters. Several years after the construction of the Death Star I, it was torn down and rebuilt as a small, remote aviation research outpost straddling the Outer Rim and the Mid Rim near Mandalorian Space. Consequently, it did not take long and was not very hard for the Mandalorians to execute a coup-d'etat and utilise the prototypical spacecraft at hand. The first prototype they commandeered was the X-VIPER, one of the few effective fruits of the outpost's research and capable of withstanding a velocity of 60,000 kilometres/hour.




MOVEMENT


Designed after the infamous podracers of Tatooine, the X-VIPER increases altitude in flight by a combination of rolling and yawing slightly the opposite way; a decrease in altitude is achieved by the same process but yawing in the same direction as the roll. A complete roll must be executed to finish the maneouvre to level back out. The X-VIPER turns by a combination of rolling and pitching just like a normal aircraft.
