Imperial Medium 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 ehading. 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 Medium Land-Cruiser is half again as big as the lgiht class and more
heavily armoured. However the Medium is also slower. The Medium-LC
has a block-like apperance to it. The front slants down with the heavy
blaster cannons sticking right out of the middle of it. The sides go
straight up and the back slants up as it goes back, at a 45 degree angle.
On either side, are small semi-globular turrtes that stick out with slits
on them. These turrets house heavy repeaters that can cut through
infantry ranks with ease. These craft often act as command craft for
groups of four to eight Light-LCs, and foten have a captain on board.
