Preybird Swoop

The Preybird swoop is the standard swoop used by active and training Palvar
Defense Force army troopers. Swoops provide the extremely agile mobility
that PDF soldiers demand.

Typically, each PDF army trooper has a Preybird assigned to him/her/it once
they complete their first rounds of swoop training. When on patrol, they
generally tend to travel in groups of eight. For those soldiers stationed on
a starship, the swoops are usually stored in the ship's cargo hold(s) and
remain there until they are needed during a ground operation or they are
changed out during crew rotation and new ones brought in with the
replacement soldiers. The PDF army troopers hold their swoops sacred,
each allowed to paint their own personal designs on them as long as they
do not modify the swoop itself in anyway. Most squads tend to paint the
same symbols on their swoops, usually of an adopted mascot that is elected
by the eight soldiers.

The Preybird was designed for the typical rough rider or soldier. It has a
blaster rifle holster, just behind the saddle on the right side, that fits
most blaster rifles, including the BlasTech E11 and the Kashan B-12. A small
storage compartment is located under the saddle itself which allows the
driver to store small items, such as food rations or a blaster pistol.

Preybirds have two outriggers with four forward steering vanes. Maneuver
controls are located in the hand grips, while altitude controls are built
into the foot pedals. Speed normally is controlled through the foot pedals.
Communications, sensors, and weaponry controls are set in a panel in front
of the saddle.
