"Yes, Lord Vader. I've reached the main power generators. The shield will be down in moments. You may start your landing."
―General Maximillian Veers to Darth Vader, regarding the Echo Base shield generator.[src]

Blizzard Force was an elite Imperial Army unit that specialized in cold-weather operations. It utilized multiple AT-AT walkers in which dozens of Cold weather assault stormtroopers could be stationed inside of along with numerous armaments. The force itself was led by the ruthless General Maximillian Veers,[4] who had personally selected every AT-AT pilot in the unit.[5] Blizzard Force spearheaded the assault of Echo Base on the ice world of Hoth while the Imperial Death Squadron loomed overhead.[6][1]


Upon discovering the Rebel Alliance's hidden base on the remote world of Hoth, the Empire quickly mobilized an attack force, with the Death Squadron in orbit above the planet while the elite Blizzard Force led by General Maximillian Veers would spearhead the assault on Echo Base below. Assembling for the battle in the Moorsh Moraine, Blizzard Force promptly assaulted the base, attempting to disable the rebel's shield generator and ultimately destroy the rebellion once and for all.[7] The battle ended an Imperial victory, however not before Veers' walker Blizzard One was destroyed and several rebel GR-75 medium transports and T-65B X-wing starfighters escaped the Hoth system.[1][4]
