The All Terrain Scout Transport was designed to function as a reconnaissance and patrol vehicle for the Imperial.
You could receive an AT-ST as a factional pet that required thousands of faction points. Each player was restricted to one, and as for all faction pets, it can only be called while the player is overt (Special Forces). The AT-ST pet was very handy in battle, but was an easy target for all enemy forces to attack. Thus the huge expense in faction points can easily turn into just a short distraction in the action. On the other hand, if all players of one side release all of their faction pets at once, it could have had a dramatic effect on the battle.
Since Publish 26, the AT-ST is no longer obtainable from the Imperial recruiter.
If you are lucky enough to have one, also be very careful if you decide to call it out. If the AT-ST is killed by NPCs or in PvP, it cannot be restored ever.

Star Wars LoreEdit
The AT-ST was a featured vehicle in the final battle on Endor in Return of the Jedi. Two Imperials controlled the vehicle from the inside. Normal blasters had no effect on the AT-ST, but the vehicle's blasters easily blew away trees and mowed down enemy combatants. Logs were able to smash them, however, and when their stability is reduced, their weight can easily bring them down.
