The AT-PT was a bipedal, all-terrain light infantry walker manufactured by Rothana Heavy Engineering. Distinguished by its triple-jointed legs and one-pilot cabin, the AT-PT was armed with twin blaster cannons located below the viewport.
Designed before the height of the Clone Wars, the AT-PT, along with the All Terrain Tactical Enforcer, led to the development of the three-legged All Terrain Attack Pod. Its basic form and leg geometry were similar to that of the later All Terrain Reconnaissance Transport. In the Imperial Era, the Imperial Army utilized AT-PTs during the Galactic Civil War, a galaxy-wide conflict between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance.
Behind the scenes
In the current Star Wars canon, AT-PTs first appeared in the tower defense mobile game Star Wars: Galactic Defense, which was released in 2014 and shut down in 2016. In the Star Wars Legends continuity, AT-PTs, fully known as All Terrain Personal Transports, were conceived for the 1992 novel Dark Force Rising, the second chapter of Timothy Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy.
