"These vehicles—when deployed alongside stormtroopers—bring the full power of Imperial combined arms to bear."
General Pitt Onoran[src]

Combined arms was an approach to surface warfare in which multiple military types (from infantry to armored cavalry) were integrated into an operation. The Galactic Empire's army favored that strategy, which forced the enemy to defend against one type of attack while leaving them vulnerable to another.[1] During the Clone Wars, the Grand Army of the Galactic Republic also used the combined arms approach by having assault gunships fire on enemy vehicles as they delivered clone troopers to the battlefield.[2]
