A pair of Speeders

The Speeder is the smallest of the elite vessels used by Blackwater, found in missions when using higher level ships.

Compared to its standard counterpart, the Speeder moves even more quickly, fires its gatling weapon more often, and has a fair bit of additional health (although still not enough to prevent it from being frequently one-shotted.) It is one of the fastest enemy ships in the game, with speed comparable to the Locust aerial unit. This enemy's weapon has the same appearance as the "Twin Repel" autocannon.

Its standard counterpart is the Skimmer.
