Characteristics

A T2-B repulsor tank battles a squad of stormtroopers.

The tank's repulsorlifts allowed it to travel over any form of terrain, even making the transition from water to land with relative ease. The T2-B carried a sophisticated sensor system, making it a valuable scouting vehicle for air assaults and similar long-range attacks.

But, being armed only with four rapid fire-linked lasers, made it a weak attack vehicle when compared to the AT-AT walkers of the Imperial Army. However, it did have deflector shields, which allowed some lasting power while under enemy fire. It countered infantry very well because it's shield was strong enough to deflect the majority of small blaster fire, and it's rapid fire cannons could make short work of the majority of infantry.

History

The tank, along with many of their vehicles and manufacturing systems, found their way into the hands of the Alliance after the board of directors of Yutrane-Trackata granted sole use of their products to the Galactic Empire, rebel leaders had exploited the company's reluctance to support the new order by bribing high ranking members to leave shipments of their vehicle vulnerable to being stolen in a well planned raid. The tanks also made their way into the hands of the Chubbits when the Empire took control of the mining facilities on Aridus.[1] The Rebellion only had a limited number of these tanks, so large field formations were rarely used before the Battle of Endor.[3]
