Imperial combat assault tank commanders, also known as tank troopers, were specialized vehicle commanders who commanded the Imperial combat assault tank pilots piloting TX-225 GAVw "Occupier" combat assault tanks from the assault tank's command seat, which provided a view of the surrounding area. Tank commanders stayed in contact with their crew and headquarters to keep updated on changing combat conditions. Under Imperial occupation, the streets of Jedha were patrolled by Imperial combat assault tanks, which were operated by combat drivers and a tank commander.
In 0 BBY, a TX-225 GAVw "Occupier" combat assault tank was present in the Holy City of Jedha were it was led by Sergeant Jimmon Arbmab. It was shipping kyber crystals for the Death Star. But, Saw Gerrera's rebel group ambushed it and took the kyber crystals.
