"A Compact Assault Vehicle doesn't necessarily signal the presence of an Imperial base. It probably means just the opposite. The Empire uses these one troop vehicles on undeveloped worlds that aren't occupied territory. One trooper in a CAV can control a lot of territory."
Luke Skywalker

The Compact Assault Vehicle/wheeled PX-10 was a one-man, land based surveillance vehicle, armed with a medium blaster cannon (turreted). It was designed for use on worlds too remote to warrant a full-scale assault, yet too valuable to neglect.

Since it could be operated by only one person (aided by an auto-pilot system), it helped solve the problem of Imperial forces spreading themselves too thin. To save on manpower, it could also be piloted by a droid.

They were known for their agility and small size, but also for their susceptibility to sensor jamming, and thus failed to catch on completely with the Imperial Army.

Though threatened by high-tech enemies, the PX-10 was more than a match for the more primitive subject worlds of the Empire. In addition, these units were used to great success during the suppression of uprisings in the Core and Colonies regions.
