Sand pirates use all manner of improvised vehicles to attack those that may have something they want. Everything from small swoops to stolen racers are outfitted with makeshift weapons of destruction.
This stolen Surosub Exocet XL Atmospheric Racing Airspeeder has been stripped down to ensure faster speeds and a much tighter turning radius for repeat strafing of it's targets, enabling withering cover fire for the sand pirate ground troops that will actually capture the target.

The pilots serving in the various sand pirate tribes usually forgo the bulky robes used by the ground troops as they impede movement in the often cramped cockpits of their makeshift attack craft.

This is a project that took MANY years to come to fruition. If you look at pictures of my WIP table over the years, this vehicle can be seen in it's raw, unpainted state in just about all of them (I was unable to locate a pic of my very first WIP table from Palisades Park in 2003, but I know that is when this vehicle was actually built):
