. They stood only three meters tall, and were driven by AT-PT pilots. The walkers were capable of reaching speeds up to 60 kilometers per hour and could climb a 45-degree angle, with hydraulic adjusters keeping the unit balanced. The vehicles carried a long-range comm antenna for patrols. The main drive unit provided power and hydraulic pressure for the two legs, and featured cooling vents. The cockpit entry hatch was on the side, while the emergency flare launcher was just above the viewport. The AT-PT was - compared to its intended threat, enemy soldiers - heavily armored, enough so that small-arms fire could not penetrate the craft's armor. The walker was armed with either single or twin blaster cannons and one concussion grenade launcher, which were only effective against infantry. The walker's superior agility made up for its light armor (in comparison to most other cavalry units).
