Like the regiment's Jeeps, "Skimmers" are made by Fabrique National and are the Slammers' answer to individual infantry mobility. They are one man vehicles with a pair of fans, a small skirt and no armour.

Made from composites and powered by battery (charged up, usually, from the power unit on a tank or combat car) they are capable of independent flight with a ceiling only governed by combat necessity - though in practicality they stay low.

They have moveable position handlebars to enable them to be ridden standing up, sitting down or lying almost prone. Weapons - usually buzz-bombs - can be clipped to the bodywork but firing from them is tricky - especially when moving.
