Background: Vehicle custom-designed by Valkeri Enterprises for the Jedi—Vanguard, the land-based equivalent to the Vector, sometimes called a V-Wheel. Every Jedi outpost has at least one as part of its standard kit, and the machine is engineered to operate in all of the many planetary environments in which those stations are situated. It can operate as a wheeled, tracked ground transport, or a repulsorlift speeder for ground too rugged for even tank treads. A Vanguard has limited utility as an amphibious or even submersible vehicle, being able to seal itself off entirely as needed. It can do everything but fly.

The overall aesthetic is analogous to the Vectors—smooth, sleek lines, with curves and straight edges integrated into an appealingly geometric whole. Behind the seats in the driver’s cabin is a large, multipurpose passenger area, with space to store gear a mission might require. Vanguards are more rugged than Vectors, but are built with many of the same Jedi-related features as their
flying cousins. The weapons systems requires a lightsaber key, and many of the controls are mechanical in nature, so as to be operated—in an emergency—via an application of the Force rather than through electronics. Two Veil speeders are stored on racks at the rear of the vehicle.
