The Balutar-class swoop, more commonly referred to as the Mandalorian swoop, was a small, compact speeder bike with a powerful engine. It was known to be easy to pilot as its center of gravity sat just below the driver and above the main airscoop. The class, balutar was derived from the Mando'a word for "patrol".

History

"Try not to create problems where none yet exist."
―Satine Kryze to Obi-Wan Kenobi, as the latter prepared to pilot a Mandalorian swoop[src]

During the Clone Wars, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi traveled to Concordia with Duchess Satine Kryze to investigate activities of the Mandalorian splinter group, Death Watch. As Satine occupied Concordia's governor and the secret leader of the warrior cult, Pre Vizsla, Kenobi utilized a Balutar speeder to travel to one of the moon's abandoned beskar mines, where he was soon captured by the Death Watch warriors and ordered to be killed. Before he was crushed by one of the mine machines, however, Kryze had piloted a Mandalorian swoop of her own to track down the imprisoned Jedi and rescue him.
