Why don't the AAT's hatches lock from the inside?Why do the tanks even need a robot to drive them? Why not hard wire that stuff right in. It would be like building a drone to be flown by a seperately built craash test dummy. Stupid, and an issue I have always had with the Separatist army. Yet, the vultures are actual droids with no pilots.
And one of the reasons tanks have anti-personnel weapons is to prevent infantry from running up and attaching magnetic mines, etc. to the tank.
Then again, when have the AAT's ever used their weapons. They never use the hull rockets. Those nubs below the front hatch are lasers, too, according to the Episode 1 cutaway tech book.
So, yeah, we have the silly manuevors to make some "jock vs. nerd"/pissing contest scenes.
