Imperial Light Land-Cruiser

During the time immediately surrounding the battle of Endor, the Empire
began a small and short-lived revitalization of treaded vehicles. Rather
than using repulsors these Land-Crusiers sued old fahsioned tnak tread.
However the reasons for this were logistical. Treaded vehicles can handle
uneven terrain better in many cases for one thing. Also hevay cannon
recoil would cause a repulsor vehicle to rock backwards. Finaly, there
are 'dead reckoning' sensors in each tread. These sensors monitor and
record, with a high degree of accuracy, the distance aand direction the
craft moves. This way, even if typical navigation systems fail, the pilot
will still know where the craft is and where it's heading. This is fed
into a Global Positioning Computer, and a Terrain Sensor that picks up and
digitizes landmarks. These systems work independantly with low power
sensors to determine the craft's surroundings and heading. the 'dead
reckoning' supplements this and serves as a backup should these sensors be
interfered with. The Land-Cruisers typicaly have a Pilot, a Navigator, A
Communciations office, and a captain, as well as any gunenrs that may be
on board. The bridge of the cruisers is a small circular area ringed with
instrument pannels and montiors that feed information to the crew, with a
captain's chair positioned at the center, able to rotate to look at any
station. The Land-Cruisers saw the msot ammount of action during the hasty
retreats the Empire was forced to make. These craft showed up time and
again to supplement withdrawl forces to cover a retreat while under attack
from the New Republic.

The Light Land-Crusier was just a basic small assault craft with a fairly
highspeed and agile turning and manuvering. It's only armament is it's heavy
cannon, capable of breaching duracrete walls with ease. The Light LC is
typicaly crewed only by three people, exlcuidng the need for a 'captain', as
most Light LC's are just directed by Medium or Heavy LC's. The light LC is
fairly small for such a potent attack craft, and were produced in larger
numbers than any other kind. The body of the Light LC is a flattened ellipsoid
with the treads run right down the centerlines. The main cannon comes right
out front from the top half, and a hatch sits on the top center of the craft.
