"Here's what you've been sent to see, Commander."
"The new model warbot the Empire threw at your ground troops on Xeron…!"
"Yeah. They're not in the same class as those AT-ATs you and General Rieekan's people faced on Hoth… but it's no picnic fighting 'em!"
―A Rebel major and Luke Skywalker[src]

The Battle of Xeron was a battle that took place in 3 ABY.

The battleEdit

The Alliance ground troops under the command of a major faced steep opposition from the Galactic Empire, which sent in its heavy armed Imperial warbots. Despite not being as large or intimidating as AT-AT walkers, the warbots were hard to neutralize and a unit was captured in order to outline its schematics and find a weakness that could be exploited in later confrontations.


This warbot unit was carried onboard a Rebel ship of the line which brought it to a rendezvous point where Commander Luke Skywalker and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 could examine it.
