A cool and efficient officer, General Veers led the Imperial assault on Hoth, marching his AT-AT walkers across the planet's frozen plains and destroying the massive generators powering the Rebel base's protective energy shield.
Veers tread lightly around Darth Vader, fearing the Sith Lord's mercurial moods and sorcerous powers. But he welcomed the chance to lead the surface assault on Hoth, and had no doubt he would fulfill his mission objectives.
After landing beyond the perimeter of the Hoth base's protective energy shield, Veers led his AT-AT walkers across the planet's surface, heading straight for the shield generators that were his primary target.
Hoth's subzero temperatures and icy terrain made for a challenging mission, but Veers knew his AT-AT crews were well-trained, and doubted the Rebels had weapons powerful enough to penetrate his walkers' thick armor.
