Goliath-A Assault Walker

The Goliath assault walkers were an expensive venture made by a little known
combat speeder production company which was contracted to produce Imperial
AT-STs. The initial idea was to design a new walker based off of many design
concepts in the AT-ST. However, when Mr. Czekani, owner and CEO of Czekani
Manufacturing, presented the first Goliaths to an Imperial representative
he was immediately arrested and later executed for treason against the
Empire for design theft.

In reality the only design aspect stolen from the AT-ST was its gyro-balance
system, the rest of the walker was quite ingeniously designed. The Goliath's
designers - who were never found by Imperial forces and it is highly rumored
they defected to the Alliance - decided to construct two versions of the
walker to serve two completely different roles.

At the time when the Goliath was presented to the Empire there were already
two hundred of the walkers constructed - one hundred of each version. The
Empire was able to seize the majority of them but there were fifteen
walkers unaccounted for and it is assumed that they were either sold or
given to the Alliance after Czekani was arrested.

The Goliath-A is the less common Goliath version that can be found and was
designed to serve as an anti-air weapon. There are a pair of fire-linked
concussion missile launchers on the "arms" of the walker which are
specially designed to be used only in surface-to-air attacks - although
slight modification can make them be used in the surface-to-surface role as
well. An antipersonnel repeating blaster turret is mounted on the underside
of the walker between the legs to cut down enemy troops.

Those Goliaths seized by the Empire were rumored to be placed into service
of the Imperial Army but this has yet to be proven. Rumors are also
running wild that the Alliance does indeed have the fifteen missing
Goliaths and is in the process of constructing several more for limited
deployment.
