Imperial Department of Military Research developed the All Terrain Scout Transport, AT-ST for short, as a reconnaissance vehicle. Built as a bipedal walker rather than a quadrupedal walker like the AT-AT.
The AT-ST is armed with lesser weapons primarily to deal with infantry and small installations that miss the larger weapons of the AT-AT. To this end she has a concussion grenade launcher, light blaster and two chin mounted heavy blasters. The concussion grenade launcher is often used for anti-personal action including shrapnel and smoke rounds. Smoke rounds pose no threat to the AT-ST or the AT-AT but can hamper infantry movement, while shrapnel rounds can easily kill a platoon of infantry.
Nicknamed the Chicken Walker by Imperial Army personnel due to her walking style the vehicle despite its designation of All Terrain has difficulty on uneven or rapidly shifting terrain which can be used against the vehicle to cause havoc.
The AT-ST is most commonly deployed as a flanking unit in conjunction with the larger AT-ATs protecting its larger cousins vulnerable neck and underbelly.
Imperial Department of Military Research has several variants on the drawing boards. When or if these might see fruition is unknown at this time.
All Terrain Kashyyyk Transport (AT-KT): Designed for use in the jungles of Kashyyyk in a guerilla war against Wookiees. The model features additional heavy blasters mounted to the upper portions of each leg, at the cost of some speed of the vehicles.
All Terrain Construction Transport (AT-CT): A civilian model with arms coming from the blisters that normally hold the light blaster and concussion grenade launcher she is used primarily in large scale construction such as Imperial Garrison Bases. The chin heavy blasters were replaced as well by a modified short range tractor beam to assist in construction efforts. This tractor though could be used in a pinch to use the environment against invaders.
All Terrain Riot Control Transport (AT-RCT): A modified version used as mechanized infantry or to suppress insurrections the AT-RCT was heavily modified. The cockpit was open to the air. The savings in weight allowed a modification of the chin mount to allow for four heavy blasters. The light blaster and the concussion grenade launcher were replaced by suppression cannons.
All Terrain Missile Platform (AT-MP): Another modified AT-ST this one has a shorter stature than the typical one. It replaces the weaponry of the stock AT-ST with a formidable combination. A rotary chain gun takes up the chin mount on this model. The armament on either side of the head is replaced by four missile launchers. Designed as an anti personnel walker she on paper at least is formidable. We'll see if the Empire finishes research on her.
