Star Wars: Empire at War - Sullust

Star Wars: Empire at War - Sullust
This is a hint / walkthrough for a planet in Star Wars: Empire at War. The index of all our guides for Empire at War is here.

Imperial Campaign

Space Battle
Land Battle
The entrance to where you start is conveniently close to the Abandoned factory (just to the west) which you can seize from the pirates to produce a few Swamp Speeders. You only get one build, so you can abandon the factory afterwards.
Or, you can do an AT-ST Walker blitzkreig toward the buildings in the northwest. One of the reasons you can do this with just Darth Vader and AT-STs from just the initial Reinforcement Point is because AT-STs can walk and shoot at the same time. Darth Vader takes point to soak PLEX missiles. By continually walking forward, you squash almost all the infantry in your way using your AT-STs. The typically lightly-armored Rebel vehicles at this early tech level can be taken down by the continuous AT-ST weapons fire.
One of the main advantages of a blitzkrieg is that you can run past the Building Pads before the pirates can use them to build turrets. Turrets will slow your advance considerably as you will have to wait for Darth Vader or a bombing run to clear them (or take losses doing so yourself).
