Description: The Rebel Alliance grew tired of fielding Air Speeders against Imperial Walkers and losing them, so utilising something they had a lot of, they created Walker Sized Mechanical bodies to send AstroMech's into battle alongside the fast moving Speeders.
Construction of these bodies was fantastically expensive, costing far in excess of the Walkers they were supposed to fight, however in testing against targets they were incredibly effective, slashing up captured Scout Walkers, and engaging targets at very long ranges.
However, the first time they were actually fielded in combat their weakness was discovered . . . their AstroMech Pilots. The standard R2 and R5 units had no combat skills at all, having almost no ability in shooting guns or dodging attacks, leading to them being easily defeated and the programme cancelled with their destruction at the hands of the Empire.
