Basic info
First appearance: Empire Strikes Back
Summary
Imperial combat drivers were the ground-vehicle pilots of the Galactic Empire's Army. Standard combat drivers were trained to handle everything in the Imperial ground arsenal, including Imperial Troop Transports, and various type of walkers like the AT-DP. They also flew Imperial LAAT/le patrol gunships.
Several assault vehicles used by the Empire boasted a specialized corps of drivers. Such corps included AT-AT pilots driving AT-ATs, tank operators piloting TX-225 combat assault tanks, AT-ST drivers operating AT-STs, and Juggernaut Pilots operating Imperial Juggernaut Transports. However, members of all corps were qualified to operate AT-ACTs, since they were not technically designated battlefield assault vehicles. Despite this, they still had a specialized driver group. AT-AT pilots saw themselves as the elite among the elite.
