"Target that fuel pod now!"
"But, sir, the fuel."
"I gave you a direct order."
Governor Arihnda Pryce and an AT-AT pilot[src]

AT-AT pilots,[2] also known as AT-AT Drivers,[3] were Imperial combat drivers specialized in operating the Imperial Army's AT-AT walkers.[2] Operating in groups of two, they operated the walker's driving and firing controls, and were, in certain cases, overseen by a commander who also occupied the walkers cockpit.[4]


Pulling the strongest Imperial soldiers to become the next generation of AT-AT pilots, many considered themselves all-powerful. Almost all pilots were humans averaging 1.83 meters (6ft) in height.[5]

Uniform and equipmentEdit

AT-AT pilots wore specialized insulated suits on frozen planets such as Hoth. These suits were designed to protect their wearer if their AT-ATs pressurized cockpit was compromised, along with the AT-ATs lack of climate control. Pilots wore an all-white insulated jumpsuit along with white boots and driving gauntlets. Along with sporting a reinforced helmet and life-support pack on their chest, pilots also had a standard blaster pistol, thermal detonators and grenades for potential ground-based encounters.[5]
