The brand new Imperial war machine can be full automatic and autonomous if a Droid Brain is installed on the pilot cabin, making it a giant droid walker capable of destroy... ANYTHING!!
The benefits of the ''automatic'' version were the saving of Stroomtrooper lifes, because it's a walker droid, can be repaired after the battle and an army only composed of those walkers can almost replace an entire army of living people.
But the cons of this automatic version were the price (it's more expensive than it's ''man operated'' counterpart), maintenance and reparations.
This version is also on evaluation test by the Empire and there's one unit of this version on the Empire's walker fleet.
MAY THE TRIFORCE BE WITH YOU!
