The AT-RT ..hmmm...what can I say? SUCKS! The Biker Scout....I mean the BARC Trooper...I mean I've seen bootlegs on www.toysrgus.com that were much better than the AT-RT driver. In a real life military application (or in all our cases On-Line via SW Battlefield or SW Galaxies) the pilot is in a fully clear shot range and the rig can easily fall into enemy hands. What is the necessity of the Empire/Rebuplic of such a WMD when a droid could do the same task? Possibly in the future (Epsiodes IV,V,VI) where continuity is concerned and Palpatine did ban Droid armies then maybe I can see the need for an AT-ST or an AT-AT where the armour plating is so thick and heavy that one may presumed that such vehicle is a droid or AI controlled. When I say this I feel cheated unless the AT-RT is in reality an Anti-aircraft/Anti-personnel unit and not a tank like the afore mentioned AT-ST and AT-ATs were.
