Attack of the Clones: Incredible Cross Sections, or AOTC:ICS, is the third installment of DK's Star Wars Incredible Cross Sections series. It was written by Dr. Curtis John Saxton and illustrated by Hans Jenssen and Richard Chasemore.

Incredible Cross Sections (generally known as ICS) is a series of illustrated books that, as the name implies, provide cross sections of various vehicles and ships. Descriptive text is also provided, both of the vessel and related trivia.

It targets grades 4 to 8 according to the Library Journal, a respected source of rating and evaluation of play books for youngsters as well as serious publications for adults. The Library Journal praised Attack of the Clones: Incredible Cross Sections.

Unique to all the ICS series, the Attack of the Clones book features detailed statistics in SI units on the represented vehicles. Common statistics include "maximum accelerations," measured in G's; shield dissipation rates and maximum power generation in watts; and weapons yield, sometimes measured in tons of TNT.

Much to the disappointment of some fans, the next book in the series, Revenge of the Sith: Incredible Cross-Sections, did not include as detailed or as explicit statistics.
