Attention! Spoilers ahead from The Mandalorian S2E7.
This has been bugging me for a few days and I figured I might as well ask, but in S2E7 of The Mandalorian,
There are transports of explosives being transported from one place to another. Each transport seems to only have 2 stormtroopers as guards and nothing else. Many transports seem to have been destroyed by pirates, and yet they are still sent with just 2 stormtrooper guards. Even though the Mandalorian was on one, he was still very nearly killed protecting the transport from the pirates. This seems exceedingly stupid on the Empire's part, as this wastes transports, their cargo, time, and stormtroopers.
Why aren't they given an escort of any kind, or at least fitted with a turret of some kind?
