For pretty much a century now, popular culture has told us that we would’ve had hoverboards by now. And I don’t mean those two-wheeled things that catch fire. I mean Back to the Future-style hoverboards. But we don’t. We just have to continue to look to sci-fi settings for such things and long for the day that we get them for ourselves. Such as the Skyraiders ride in the Freeborn Skyraider Squad that’s coming out soon for Beyond the Gates of Antares.
Of course, such a machine isn’t really meant for too much heavy combat. No, the Skyraiders are designed for scouting missions and quick hit-and-run assaults where their maneuverability and speed can be used to maximum advantage.
