Heavy Blaster Cannon

The All Terrain Advance Raider (AT-AR) was a bipedal walker used by the Galactic Empire. AT-AR walkers were stationed in many Imperial garrisons throughout the galaxy.
The AT-AR had heavier armor than the AT-ST, and was more suitable for frontline combat than lighter bipedal walkers. It was also faster than the scout walker. The AT-AR's "head" was situated closer to its legs, giving it a more hunchbacked look, and it was armed with a single, large blaster cannon.
The view out the cockpit was more extensive than on the AT-ST, and somewhat similar to the view from an AT-PT cockpit, especially notable in the forward heavy blaster cannon. One driver and one commander were seated side-by-side in the cockpit, while the elongated shape of the walker provided more room for cargo than the AT-ST models.
At least one variant of the walker had relatively thin armor and went by the name light AT-ST.
AT-ARs were part of the military assets belonging to an Imperial garrison established on Tatooine, in the spaceport city of Mos Eisley in 0 BBY. Other garrisons also had AT-ARs in their arsenal, such as the ones on Jarnollen and Mandalore. In 3 ABY, AT-ARs formed part of Blizzard Force and participated in the Battle of Hoth. At least one AT-AR fitted with additional weaponry was used by the local Imperial forces on Cilpar shortly after the Battle of Endor.
During the Sith?Imperial War over a hundred years later, the Fel Empire still employed AT-AR walkers. One participated in the Battle of Botajef against the Galactic Alliance-affiliated Mandalorian force.
