Imperial combat drivers were the elite ground-vehicle pilots of the Galactic Empire's Army. Combat drivers were trained to handle everything in the Imperial ground arsenal, including 614-AvA speeder bikes,[2] Imperial Troop Transports,[3] and various type of walkers like the All Terrain Defense Pod.[4]

Several assault vehicles used by the Empire boasted a specialized corps of drivers. Such corps included AT-AT pilots driving All Terrain Armored Transports, tank operators piloting TX-225 GAVw "Occupier" combat assault tanks,[5] and AT-ST drivers operating All Terrain Scout Transports.[6] However, members of all corps were qualified to operate All Terrain Armored Cargo Transports, since they were not technically designated battlefield assault vehicles.[5] Despite this, they still had a specialised driver group.[7] AT-AT pilots saw themselves as the elite among the elite.[8]

UniformsEdit

The generic armor worn by the Empire's combat drivers consisted of a jumpsuit, a cuirass, shoulder- and lower leg-armor, gauntlet-style gloves, and a domed helmet whose faceplate resembled that of Imperial cadets.[2] That combat uniform gave the combat drivers an imposing countenance,[1] and came in two different color schemes. The one worn by the Troop Transports drivers featured a black jumpsuit and field grey armor parts and helmet,[4] while the one worn by AT-DP drivers had a light grey jumpsuit, field grey body armor, and a light grey helmet.[4]

  • AT-AT pilot—The field uniform of the AT-AT pilots resembled a white version of the one worn by the TIE/ln space superiority starfighter pilots. It consisted of a light grey flight suit complete with webbing, along with white gloves, boots and helmet.[9]
  • AT-ST driver—Contrary to other branches, AT-ST drivers wore little armor. They donned light grey jumpsuits with pockets, a grey-green open face helmet, a belt, black boots and gauntlet gloves, and a pair of dark goggles.[10]
  • Tank driver—At the time of the Battle of Scarif, tank drivers wore a partial suit of plastoid plates that not only provided protection, but also permitted the flexibility required to sit in the confining quarters of a tank. Tank commanders wore the same armor, but with a black stripe across the top of their chest plate.[5]
