Imperial AT-ST and Troopers
The All Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST), also known as the chicken walker for its two-legged design, was a bipedal walker used by the Galactic Republic during the late Clone Wars and, later and more extensively, the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. the AT-ST was a heavily armed light ground combat vehicle, and able to trek various environments. The stock model was equipped with a chin-mounted double medium blaster cannon, a concussion grenade launcher on the starboard side of its head, two feet with claws, a blaster cannon on the port side, and was encased with 9095-T8511 grade durasteel.
The AT-ST's chin guns had an effective range of two kilometers and were used for anti-vehicle attacks, while the armor-shielded blaster cannon and grenade launcher provided close-range protection against infantry and light emplacements. The armor was not sufficient to withstand blasts from starship cannons, but was impervious to small-arms fire. Paraphrased from Wookiepedia
