It could probably crush one by stepping on it. And if it were built for war use it definitely wouldn't be "cannon fodder". And they'd be more apt to use the AT-TE for it, which can fire 360. Yea I wiki'd it.

I'm not really into star wars but I like the vehicles and such. : )

Yes, but do you know why? It's because a parsec is actually a unit of distance itself. One parsec is equal to about 3.26 lightyears. So it would be like claiming you completed the indy500 in 400 miles.

Except kessel run is actually a run around a series of black holes.

His ship is capable of running closer than others, travelling much less distance.

I thought it was because it was faster, that it could travel closer to black holes.
