The Swift Wind, built on Indicass, is designed to carry one scout to where he or she needs to be and back again quickly. It has six wheels, each one powered and providing good clearance. Its comm system allows it to relay information back to its comrades quickly, and can even act as an artillery spotter.[4][5]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Swift Wind has no weapons to speak of. It is, however, equipped with a powerful communications system that enables it to eavesdrop on enemies, as well as contact friendly 'Mechs, artillery, aerospace units, DropShips, satellites, and even JumpShips. This gives it formidable coordination abilities when acting in concert with these units. It also has a half ton of cargo space available.[4][5]


  • I.C.E. 
    From 2841 Ceres also produced a cheaper version of their vehicle for customers with limited budgets. The change to an internal combustion engine eliminated the cargo bay because of the increase in engine weight. BV (2.0)= 83[6]
  • I.C.E. (Cargo)
    This 2845 version of the Swift Wind reduces the top speed of the car to 120km/h, which allows for a smaller engine. Three tons of cargo space is available to the unit, but this takes up all the room liberated by the engine swap and requires the removal of the communications equipment. BV (2.0) = 81[7]
  • I.C.E. (Speed) 
    This Swift Wind modification of 2891 reduces the armor protection to a half-ton, removes the communications equipment, and increases the top speed of the unit to 171km/h. The higher top speed requires a much larger engine, but the protection offered by the high speed is worth it. BV (2.0) = 39[8]
