Alliance Service Tank

Due to the limited funds of the Rebel Alliance, many Alliance surface regiments
were forced to cut corners where possible. Often times, this meant replacing a
standard repulsortank with a makeshift substitute. Speeder trucks with their
reinforced frame and thick hulls often made a suitable basis for one of these
makeshift tanks. Rebels nicknamed this particular modified war machine the
Service tank, playing off of the SRV1 model number.

The Aratech SRV1, while being a very old model at the time of the Rebellion,
was one of the more easily attainable and cost effective vehicles to modify.
The basic frame of the SRV1 made it very simple and cheap to add a heavy blaster
cannon on a turret mount atop the cockpit and extra space inside the cockpit,
originally used as locker space for the driver, housed the targetting and
control systems for the weapon.

While not capable of engaging a standard Imperial repulsortank one on one, these
makeshift models could provide heavy fire for advancing troops and engage light
and medium vehicles. Often times, they would be deployed in at least small groups,
and very rarely alone.

Such makeshift tanks were common in lower priority and under funded Rebel cells,
actual combat repulsortanks were often times reserved for the most combat active
units.
