I don’t play a lot of video games, but I did try Star Wars: Battlefront. The focus in all the scenarios is the AT-AT, that elephantine monster we first saw on the planet Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back.
If you play the rebel side, you try to destroy the AT-ATs. I always played the empire so I had to defend them. Problem is, the AT-AT has a lot of firepower up front, but nowhere else, leaving it open to air and ground attacks from the side and rear. It can take a lot of hits, but it’s not invulnerable.
That got me thinking. Becaise it’s a troop transport, seems like a few stormtroopers could operate ball-turret guns on the side and rear, like they had on B-17s, and other WWII-era bombers.
I think it could look like this.
