The All Terrain Experimental Transport (AT-XT) was an experimental armored assault walker used by the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. It was a predecessor to the AT-RT and AT-ST, the latter of which was used extensively by the Galactic Empire.

Characteristics

The AT-XT was equipped with twin laser cannons mounted under its chin and two long-range proton mortar launchers.[1]

Also, as a defensive measure, some units were equipped with a plasma shield capable of absorbing enemy fire for a short period of time. In spite of its slow speed of only seventy-five kilometers per hour, which was only fifteen kilometers per hour faster than the AT-TE, and five kilometers per hour faster than the AT-RT, it was capable of demolishing enemy columns.[1]

History

The Dark Reaper Crisis

AT-XTs played a very important role in bringing the Dark Reaper Project to a halt. They fought during the battles of Rhen Var and Thule.[1]

Design-influence

AT-XTs deployed with General Kenobi's Third Army on Jabiim.

The AT-XT was never mass-produced, but held enough numbers to see action throughout all three years of the Clone Wars. In addition, several bipedal walker-designs would continue as its design-legacy, throughout both the Clone Wars and the Galactic Civil War.

Even though it never saw as much combat like other walkers such as the AT-TE or the AT-RT, the design would later be valuable to Republic designers as an inspiration for the AT-ST.[3]

In addition to its design-legacy, various AT-XT models were retained in use by the Galactic Empire, mostly for research and development purposes. Due to the fact that the AT-ST wasn't as good as a front-line combat vehicle as the AT-XT, the latter was still used in combat.[2]
