The All Terrain Armored Transport, AT-AT for short, is perhaps the most dreaded and powerful ground assault vehicle ever comprised to date. Designed by R&D staffers at Imperial Department of Military Research for use by the Galactic Empire she is an impressive vehicle.
Imperial Department of Military Research started with a basic premise that was used late in the Clone War era, and made it into a formidable weapon. The vehicle has 2 heavy lasers mounted in a chin mount. These are fire linked to one another and can deal a devastating blow to vehicles and emplacements. On either side of the head is a medium laser which are fire linked as well. These are the primary weapons used to combat enemy speeders and the like during assaults.
The AT-AT includes a very large cargo capacity. Designed to carry a platoon of Stormtroopers into battle she posses a threat to any installation. The Vehicle can also carry 1 All Terrain Scout Transport, AT-ST for short, or 6 S74-2 Speeder Bike. These are used to scout and help protect the vulnerable areas of the AT-AT.
The AT-AT is thought to be based off the Fambaa, which is a native creature of Naboo. Large and ponderous the vehicle much like the creature creates stomping that can be felt for some distance, usually before the vehicle can even be seen one can feel the ground shake. This ground shaking is a carefully designed mechanism to create fear in those that the Empire chooses to attack.
The AT-AT though is not without weaknesses. The underbelly of the vehicle is underarmored. This is usually corrected with AT-ST's taking flanking positions on AT-AT's to keep others away or S74-2's keeping infantry away. Another weak area of the vehicle is the neck connection between the control head and the body, this relatively unarmored area is vulnerable to even medium blasters making it a prime target for those wanting to assail the vehicles. The final vulnerability is that the AT-AT tends to be unstable on her feet at times, if someone could find a way to tip one over it would not be able to regain its footing.
Although they have yet to be seen on the battlefield it is rumored that Imperial Department of Military Research designed several variants of the AT-AT to fulfill specific battlefield roles.
Dune Walker: Modified to sustain operations upon hot worlds, this AT-AT model reportedly can operate without problem for the crew and passengers on hot planets.
Snow Walker: Modified to sustain operations upon cold worlds, this AT-AT model reportedly can operate without problem for the crew and passengers on cold planets.
Swimmer: Also called the Aquatic Terrain Armored Transport this model removes the legs for repulsorlifts and is designed to operate in the depths of oceans. Primarily used to defend aquatic garrison bases.
All Terrain Ion Cannon: This model replaces the normal cargo capacity with a KDY-150v Planetary Ion Cannon making a mobile planetary defense weapon.
