In the early days of the Clone Wars, the Republic suffered several devastating losses in ground battles. One of the droid army's favorite tactics was to jam communications so that the individual units couldn't coordinate their movements. The larger vehicles, with their powerful comm arrays, were unaffected, but the ground troops were hit hard.
The Republic responded swiftly, rushing the All Terrain Communications Relay (AT-CR) into service. This small, one man walker was sent into ground battles behind the front lines, boosting the communications signals, and allowing the Clone Armies to maintain the chain of command. http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/walte ... t-cr_1.jpg
Lightly armed and armored, the AT-CR was never meant to be used in heavy fighting. It was, however, agile enough to evade fire and postion itself optimally on the battlefield. It could use it's one laser and two missiles to defend itself in a pinch.

The true reason I made this MOD is simple. I've been buying Battle Packs to fill boht of my RGSs, my AT-TE, and hopefully my AT-OT and old AT-TE, should I ever get one. That left a lot of empty Walkers. So I made them a one man vehicle, and have started buying a couple of extras to make sure I have enough clones to pilot them.
The MOD is pretty simple, requiring only 9 pieces off of BL. Total cost is around $1.00, not including shipping, per Walker.
