Lightning Squadron was an elite cavalry unit that was part of the 91st Reconnaissance Corps of the Grand Army of the Republic.

The unit was established at the start of the Clone Wars to handle special recon missions. Lightning Squadron consisted of ten ARF Troopers specially trained to operate AT-RT’s & could be divided into two five-man squads, or lances, each led by a sergeant. A lieutenant was the commanding officer of the entire unit. Despite being subordinate to higher officials, the unit maintained a certain amount of autonomy and often worked behind enemy lines, far from any immediate help.

Under the command of General Mace Windu and Commander CC-0411, it participated in the Battle of Ryloth. The unit greatly helped in the liberation of the world from Emir Wat Tambor. Lightning Squadron was a division of Windu's force during the offensive to free Ryloth's capital.

Windu led his force to the capital via a cliffside path. This was a risky decision that did not escape the notice of the Separatist defenders. In an attempt to neutralize the Republic forces before they became a strategic threat, the CIS sent a tank division that were to box the walkers in by disabling the leading and rear-most units before destroying the entire group. As the Republic force fell under heavy fire, Mace Windu ordered the deployment of Lightning Squadron's AT-RT’s. Mace Windu led Lightning Squadron in a charge that completely routed the Separatist tanks, freeing the rest of the walker division to advance to their objective. They later took part in the storming of the capital city alongside with Cham Syndulla's freedom fighters.

Razor and Stak were two particularly notable members during this battle. The pair served as Windu's companions for much of the campaign, accompanying him during his dealings with Syndulla's freedom fighters. Later, he took them along during his attempted infiltration of the plasma bridge control center in a Separatist convoy, which was spoiled by a CIS inspection. The Separatist droids tried to drop Windu, Razor and Stak into the canyon below by shutting off the bridge's power, but with Windu's force powers, they crossed safely. The Jedi master held off the Separatist defenders so the pair of ARF’s could storm the control center and enable the liberation force to enter the city. Ponds was later killed by Aurra Sing aboard Slave I.

Quoting JS Can Nice work. I guess the legs don't bend other than the feet, but I that's a trade off for stability.
Thanks for your comments, I used Technic Axle & Pin Connectors for the legs, I thought they gave the legs a authentic look & your right stability, however I'm experimenting with other angled parts to get various leg positions to give the appearance of an AT-RT running, hope to post photos soon.

Quoting E.K.O (On vacation) Nice work, the details are great but I'm not a fan of how you based it of Legos version as I don't find Legos version very accurate, but other than that, this looks great. The scene you made is also very nicely done.
Thanks for your comments, I agree about the Lego AT-RT, but I like to customize the Lego kits to make them better, so I try to keep some elements of the original kit alive, I guess I could do a more realistic version later on. [MAY THE BRICKS BE WITH YOU]
