The AT-AP was a three-legged "pod walker" used for long-range artillery strikes by the Grand Army of the Republic during the latter part of the Clone Wars. During the Galactic Civil War, they were used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic.

CharacteristicsEdit

A three-legged "pod walker,"[1] the AT-AP boasted incredible range and firepower. However, it had to secure its balance before firing it's mass-driver cannon by deploying its support leg,[3] which would fold away when not in use.[4] This cannon could not target enemies in close range, forcing the pod walker to rely upon the its pair of laser cannons, one mounted beneath its chassis[3] and the other manned by a clone gunner on its dorsal surface.[4]

HistoryEdit

The AT-AP played a prominent part in the latter part of the Clone Wars,[3] the Outer Rim Sieges. The Grand Army of the Republic deployed pod walkers during the Siege of Saleucami and the Battle of Felucia.[4] During the Battle of Kashyyyk, AT-APs were deployed to support Republic ground troops and counter Separatist DSD1 dwarf spider droids.[5] They were used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War against the Galactic Empire.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Originally created for the 2005 film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith,[4] the AT-AP was developed during the postproduction process as part of director George Lucas' request to diversify clone ground armor. Alex Jaeger developed the initial concepts, which were referred to as the "Pod Attack Walker," or P.A.W.[6]
