AT-AT pilots, also known as AT-AT Drivers, were Imperial combat drivers specialized in operating the Imperial Army's AT-AT walkers. Working 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 walker's cockpit.
Training[edit | edit source]
Uniform and equipment[edit | edit source]
AT-AT pilots wore specialized insulated suits on frozen planets such as Hoth. These suits were designed to protect their wearer if their AT-AT's pressurized cockpit was compromised, along with the AT-AT's 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.
