Possibly the worst design ever for a scout vehicle, what's to keep the pilot from being jettisoned at 400 km/h, actually reaching the pedals at that very speed or not get burnt to a crisp from the exhausts aiming directly at the knee caps.

Well, don't forget that this vehicle was probably designed to be used exclusively by droids. Though you are right, according to older official descriptions that have now been retconned and declared un-canon, the STAP was unusable by organics because of the radiation expelled at knee level. I don't think I can put such a limitation in Men of War, but I will if I ever find out how!

Only usable by one player? aka Confederacy.

That kind of limitation is also something we're gonna look into in Men of the Emperor, we have plenty of non-humans and vehicles that need to able to enter transport vehicles.

Description

Not long before the infamous Blockade of Naboo, the Single Trooper Aerial Platform was procured in large numbers as part of the Trade Federation’s secret rearmament to ramp up the Trade Federation’s ability to perform organized ground operations on a large scale. The addition of the STAP, among several other vehicles, into the Trade Federation’s arsenal transformed the mostly space-based and defensive Trade Defense Force into a substantial, highly mobile paramilitary force capable of enforcing the Federation’s will on an entire planet.
