The All Terrain Tactical Enforcer (AT-TE), also referred to as a tank by clone troopers, was a multipurpose military ground walker used by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. They boasted six legs that could be magnetized, six laser cannon turrets located along the body of the walker, and a heavy projectile mass-driver cannon on top.

CharacteristicsEdit

The All Terrain Tactical Enforcer was a low-built vehicle that featured six articulated legs for propulsion. Its body consisted of two armored halves that were connected by a flexible concertina section, which increased the walker's mobility on the field. Because its legs were low to the ground, the walker had a relatively low top speed, but its also enjoyed greater stability. As its name suggests, the AT-TE was suitable for all terrains; not only was it able able to climb sheer surfaces, but it could also survive in the vacuum of realspace. The AT-TE measured 22.02 meters in length and 9.57 meters in height.[2]

The AT-TE's most powerful weapon was a single mass-driver cannon located on the vehicle's dorsal surface. Four smaller ball-turret laser cannons were mounted at the front, and two others at the rear. The hexapod's armor could easily deflect small arms fire. However, it could be pierced by tanksmasher rockets, which could result in the destruction of the vehicle's complex propulsion mechanisms.[2]

The walker's pilot sat in a forward compartment, while a gunner sat exposed atop the walker to operate the mass-driver cannon.[4] The standard version of the AT-TE carried 20 troops,[1] and some variants carried smaller All Terrain Recon Transports in their rear hold.[4]

HistoryEdit

Built by Rothana Heavy Engineering,[1] the All Terrain Tactical Enforcer became the principal battle tank of the Grand Army of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars.[2]

A blast from an AT-TE was Clone Commander Cody's chosen method in executing Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi when received Order 66, but the blast only succeeded in knocking Kenobi into water, and he later escaped to safety.[7]

AT-TE-SW Commander

A Rebel AT-TE

Fifteen years after the end of the Clone Wars, Captain Rex, along with Commander's Wolfe and Gregor, were living in a modified AT-TE on Seelos. They, along with the Lothal Rebels, later used the tank to evade Imperial forces, which consisted of three AT-AT walkers. The tank was able to destroy one AT-AT in the sandstorm before Rex ordered a direct assault on the other two while the Rebels escaped. The Mass-driver cannon, unfortunately, was not strong enough to penetrate the AT-AT armor. The AT-TE was able to sustain multiple shots from both walkers before Wolfe drove it into one of the walkers. However, the cannon was temporarily knocked out, but Gregor was able to restore power when the rebels returned and hijacked one of the AT-ATs, giving Rex the opening to shoot the last walker in the neck. However, the AT-TE was destroyed when the AT-AT collapsed on it.

Several AT-TEs were later modified by Rebel Alliance mechanics in order to be used as an attack vehicle during the Galactic Civil War.[6]
