Description: Much like the Empire that defeated it, the Trade Federation produced a huge variety of different combat vehicles as it attempted to find the most economic and deadly, it also seemed to relish giving these vehicles ridiculous acronyms another thing in common with the Empire. The SPAS is one of the many Speeder Bike clones that the Trade Federation created as an scout vehicle for their Droid Armies. They eventually settled on using the STAP, because the SPAS was too expensive to manufacture for a "disposable" army like the droid armies of the Trade Federation. However the few SPAS that had been issued were mothballed, and stored in Trade Federation warehouses across the galaxy. When the Empire siezed these warehouses, they sold off the contents in an attempt to recoup some of the immense cost of the Clone Wars. While slower and more unwieldy than most other speeder bikes, the SPAS is fairly well armoured and has a fairly decent altitude range, as well as being equipped with shields.
