The All Terrain Scout Transport/Assault (AT-ST/A) was a walker and direct assault variant of the Imperial All Terrain Scout Transport. It featured an advanced gyro stabilizer system and reinforced feet, which made it slightly taller than the standard AT-ST model. It measured 10 meters in height and only had one blaster cannon. All of its modifications made it more suitable for direct attacks than the AT-ST.
