Airspeeders function much like automobiles in that they provide transportation for the general public. Instead of roadways, airspeeders use designated lanes in the sky.

On planets that use airspeeders, the garages are often found near the top of the building. Car redirects here. ... A multi-storey car park is a building or part thereof which is designed specifically to be for vehicle parking and where there are a number of floors on which parking takes place. ...

The V-wing Airspeeder was a swift and agile speeder and could travel at 1000 km per hour with the help of its 2 specially-designed Chab-Ylwoum scramjet boosters. These scramjets could be used to outrun enemy craft. The V-wing Airspeeder's weapons were 2 fire-linked blaster cannons located on each side of the craft's scramjet intakes beneath the V-wing Airspeeder's wings. These cannons were capable of Rapid-Fire for short periods, however, these easily overheated. Cluster Missiles were fitted as a secondary weapon, as seen in the original Rogue Squadron game on N64. The blaster cannons had a range of 2 km though they could only take on similar-sized vessels such as Droid TIE Fighters and were obsolete against warships or assault craft.
