The First Order’s ground-assault forces use two-legged scout walkers for reconnaissance and anti-personnel missions. The First Order’s take on the venerable AT-ST design offers improved gyroscopic systems and next-generation armor that’s both strong and lightweight. BB-8 took control of a First Order AT-ST aboard the Supremacy, allowing Rose Tico and Finn to escape to Crait.
The New Republic’s rise reduced the once-mighty Empire to a rump state hemmed in by strict disarmament treaties and punishing reparations.

Standing over 20 meters tall with blast-impervious armor plating, these massive constructs are used as much for psychological effect as they are for tactical advantage.
