Description: The Infantry Support Platform, abbreviated to ISP and also known as the clone swamp speeder, was a military landspeeder that was used by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars, a war between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems from 22 BBY to 19 BBY. Due to the vehicle's powerful and unique turbofan and repulsors, it was highly maneuverable even in difficult terrain. The speeder was equipped with two forward-terrain laser scanners and two twin swiveling blaster cannons but could be modified to carry twin beam cannons or Multi-Missile Pods. It first saw action during the Battle of Kashyyyk of 19 BBY. Shortly after in the same year, the ISP was deployed during the Battle on Felucia as part of the Outer Rim Sieges against the Separatist Droid Army as well as during the Battle of Cato Neimoidia.

Characteristics
It had a semi-circular base protected by a red-and-white armored shell. Mounted on the rear was a large turbofan, which, working with the speeder's repulsorlift drive, propelled the craft through swamps. The 100 kph thrust-fan provided both forward propulsion and a precise braking airblast when reversed.

It was crewed by two clone troopers that sat on either side of the engine, operating controls or firing the vehicle's two forward-mounted blaster cannons. The cannons are able to cause damage to light-armored targets, and with a precise hit, can rupture heavier targets as well.

These twin-blasters were highly effective against infantry forces such as B1-Series battle droids and B2 super battle droids, and even the larger units such as the NR-N99 Persuader-class droid enforcers and Heavy Missile Platforms encountered on Felucia and Kashyyyk.

History
It was one of many specialized speeders created towards the end of the Clone Wars and a heavy variant of the BARC speeder. A terrain laser scanner was fitted to the speeder's underside, allowing clone troopers to scout the environment for any foes. It was notably used during the Battle of Kashyyyk and the Battle of Mygeeto.

Like many other vehicles of the Galactic Republic, the swamp speeder was used during the Galactic Civil War by both Imperial and Rebel forces. Additionally, pirate and planetary organizations would acquire and utilize some units. These would then be used to conduct raids, protect fortresses, or aid allied factions. The most notable organizations to use them were Black Sun, the Hutt Cartel, and the Zann Consortium.
