Description: The 98S Sea Speeder Bike is a modified and enhanced version of the 74Z Speeder Bike which serves so heavily throughout the Empire. With light Repulsorlift vehicles like speeder bikes not being totally reliable over all liquid surfaces, the need for a light scout vehicle to serve on water worlds forced this vehicle to be designed. Capable of high speeds, and fitted with heavier armour and equipment because of the removal of a weight limit imposed by the repulsorlift engine, the Sea Speeder is a rugged combat vehicle which manages to stand up well in battle. Slower than a speeder bike because of the drag caused by its hydrofoils, the Sea Speeders 360 degree fire coverage from its heavy laser turret allows it to perform more efficient strafing runs and even to engage opponents while retreating, making it a far more survivable vehicle than the normal Speeder Bike. There are some suggestions that the Empire should transfer some of the enhancements such as the armour and the turret to a heavy speeder bike, but to date they have never implemented these ideas.

So the seatroopers have a new toy. Could this be used in the open sea? Personally I do not think so. I see this used in the literolal areas. Colud this be carried inside the AT-AT Swimmers?

I think due to it's small size, it would be limited to operations on fairly calm seas. There are no reasons on a planet without a moon, so no tides, that it couldn't operate out to sea (in fact, that's how it was used in the adventure I devised it for).
