The Forest Ranger first began to appear in Year 11. Built by small in house units and released in very small numbers it was not yet ready for mass production. However there is no doubt this vehicle will some day be mass produced.
The pilot sits in a gyroscopic cockpit that adjust for maximum comfort of the pilot. It is armed with a medium blaster on each 'wingtip' and two light blasters mounted forward. This gives it more firepower than the Imperal AT-ST. The Forest Ranger is also armed with a powerful sensor suite, one of the most powerful available for a single seat vehicle. Included to allow it to find enemies in the heavy foliage of forests it can assist the pilot in finding targets on a variety of terrains.
Its powerful weaponry and sensors for a single pilot vehicle come at the expense of speed. It moves at about the same speed as the AT-PT or SX-65 Groundhog. It is a hardy vehicle able to take about twice the punishment of a MTV-7 vehicle.
