The term droid tank or tank droid referred to any type of tank that operated without the assistance of a live crew. Much like droid starfighters, they were operated through the use of a droid brain; these could either be independently-controlled or governed by remote interface with a tactical computer; in this way they were much like ordinary battle droids and their starfighter counterparts.
