    >Roche Machines' V-4XD ski speeder was a low-altitude airspeeder used by the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. The ski speeder used a stabilizer strut to keep balance when moving across alien terrain. The strut could be retracted so that the speeder could gain some altitude, but this would often make the craft experience severe wobbling.

    >With its outward similarity to the A/SF-01 B-wing starfighter, Captain Poe Dameron once remarked that the speeder was essentially "a B-wing that couldn't fly."

        It gets worse when you realize that in the entire of the star wars universe has space travel, so the creators of that shitty craft HAD to have purposely designed them to not abide by the laws of physics effectively enough.

        This is worsened by the idea that many non aero-dynamic crafts fly well within an atmospheric environment.
        So basically the designer of the plane made it so that an unknown character designed a shitty plane that couldn't fly within the continuity of star wars and did it on purpose.

    Why did they move forward into enemy fire while creating larger sand plumes that ground troops can't see through? Why didn't they attempt a flanking maneuver while the resistance troops in the trenches created a distraction? It couldn't have been a worse plan than the one in the movie considering 99% of the resistance died by the end.

    There's literally no reason. In the star wars universe full anti gravity engines that can lift vehicles are as common as car engines are on earth. Just look at the scene of all the flying carlike vehicles on coruscant, full anti grav engines are everywhere.
    Downgrading and deciding to build these things would be like if the military decided to power there next tank using a steam engine, circa 1860's steam locomotive. It makes no fricking sense.
    They made it because some moronic writer thought "wouldn't it be a cool scene" and didn't give a flying frick about the existing lore

        This only seems cool and like a good idea so long as there are no AWAC planes in the area, which in a WWIII situation there obviously would be. Any AWAC plan would have no difficulty detecting such a vehicle as they are "looking down" from there radar perspective, in which case the Ekranoplan would be a rather slow moving target with no little ability to maneuver.

        They do have a role though. They're more efficient per unit of weight than an airplane, but move faster than boats because they don't have as much resistance from the water. It isn't a role that's needed very often, but there does a exist a niche they work for. The other guy was right, there is literally no reason whatsoever that the speeders would need a strut like that. Luke's backwater outer rim moisture farmer family had one or two speeders, so a military craft could easily exceed those capabilities.

Nobody had ever thought to put a ski device below a ship before, especially seeing as hover technology had been mastered for thousands of years, and made affordable to even peasants such as yourself. It was a bold choice, and one I might add that didn't go over too well with the safety oriented individuals, but they were terrific fun to crash into a good friend.

    Salt was a natural substance[2] used as an ingredient and spice in cooking.[8] It could be used as a flavoring for noodles.[4] Young nerfs craved salt, and on the planet Arkanis calves from a herd owned by the Imperial Arkanis Academy sometimes strayed down onto the Academy's beach looking for salt.[2] The Arcona Hem Dazon spent all of his credits on salt and juri juice while he was on the planet Tatooine.[3]

    Crait was a planet that for a time hosted an outpost of the Rebel Alliance and was covered in a sheet of white salt. It was dominated by white salt flats, but disturbing them exposed the red amirite underneath.[1]

    The expansive oceans of Ahch-To gave rise to wildlife on the planet with salt glands as a common evolutionary trait, allowing them to extract sea salt from their food and drink.[6]

      Why didn't they immediately call them out of reserves once the had the resistance in that low speed chase? The new republic and all of it's fleet got blasted to shit already so there's nothing else that can seriously oppose them. The resistance was on the verge on annihilation, so wouldn't it make the most sense to destroy the resistance then and there with overwhelming force?

    Thankfully, I barely recall these films, but if the Sith or whatever had a planet full of planet-destroying star destroyers (bit of a clash in the name there), and were also controlling the First Order, why did they even bother having the latter attract the attention of the Resistance? If the super fleet wasn't ready to launch yet, why activate the superweapon in the first movie? The Republic doesn't know about it, so why not just wait the six months or whatever until the fleet is ready, and then launch it simultaneously with the first use of the superweapon?
    Am I missing something here? It seems like they had a galaxy-wide alpha strike up their sleeves, and instead got impatient and threw a rock at a (small) hornet nest for no reason.
