Actually it does. As samuelvss notes, the CT grav vehicles can only make orbit, and only very slowly at that (except for the Speeder). Taking 1 hour per planet size digit. And orbit is as far as they can get before they are incapable of further thrust.

Ships and small craft on the other hand can make orbit in minutes and travel between planets at full thrust.

Two very different systems are evident and in use.

As you note, being based on CT, MgT should have similar notes and performance.
