Deploying AT-ATs


Recommended Posts

They never showed it in the movies, but somehow they had to get those AT-ATs down to Hoth from the Star Destroyers. What I was wondering is how is this done? The obvious answer is they use some sort of cargo shuttle to transport the things. But...


1. How many AT-ATs can one Star Destroyer hold?


2. How do they load the AT-ATs into the transport Shuttle? Do they just walk into it, or are they in parts, and have to be assembled upon landing?


3. How many AT-ATs can the transport shuttle hold?


In any case, I was just wondering how they go about doing this. Thanks.

The wonders of wiki :D


There are two methods of the deploying them: AT-AT barge & dropship.


AT-AT barge




I believe you might find additional info in one of the SW Tech cut-away books :wink:


The ISD I carried 20 AT-AT's & 30 AT-ST's

I'm looking at my incredible cross sections book and I can see room for about 4 AT-AT barges on the ISD Devastator. You can only see the front of 2 of the barges and they don't look anything like those pictures from Force Commander. Infact they look just tall enough that an AT-AT could walk onboard it, though it's only wide enough for 1.

I don't like the fact that they call the SSD's "Executor-class Star Dreadnoughts. It's a Super-class Star Destroyer.

I subscribe to the preference for real-life naval tradition myself...


In the movies, the Executor is only called a “star destroyerâ€

Fighting is terrible, but not as terrible as losing the will to fight.
