The HAVw A6 Juggernaut, more commonly known as the Juggernaut, the clone turbo tank, or simply the turbo tank, was a heavily armed and armored ten-wheeled tank manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards. They were used as military transports by the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.[3] Following the Galactic Republic's transition into the Galactic Empire, the A6 was succeeded by the HCVw A9 turbo tank by 0 BBY.[4]


HAVw A6 Juggernaut was deployed at the First battle of Felucia. Ahsoka Tano's Juggernaut was aided by two All Terrain Tactical Enforcers, while being lead by Tano the tanks pushed forward continuing pushing the droids back. She believed they would win the battle. But Skywalker convinced Ahsoka to retreat when he said the droids were regrouping and were about to overrun her position. Thus, Tano and her troops abandoned their vehicles and boarded the gunships.[5]

HAVw A6 Juggernauts were used fairly extensively in the Battle of Kashyyyk alongside AT-APs, where they went up against enemy NR-N99 tank droids and DSD1 dwarf spider droids.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

The HAVw A6 Juggernaut first appeared in Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith released in 2005.[3] The Juggernaut originated from a concept of a ten-wheeled tank used by the Empire during the Battle of Hoth by Joe Johnston for Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back before the AT-AT walkers were chosen over tanks. George Lucas later revisited this design when seeking to bridge the designs of the original and prequel trilogies. Unlike the original concept, the HAVw A6 was made larger and was better armored.[6]
