Tano: "Well, they are pressurized…"
Rex: "And they're equipped with magnetic feet. Mm. Good call."

The All Terrain Tactical Enforcer (AT-TE) was a multipurpose military ground walker used by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. They boasted six legs, six laser cannon turrets along the body and a heavy projectile mass-driver cannon on top.

The All Terrain Tactical Enforcer was a low-built vehicle that featured six articulated legs for propulsion. Its body consisted of two armored halves that were connected by a flexible concertina section, which increased the walker's mobility on the field; it was essentially a mechanical version of the arctic horny whelmer, a hardy animal native to Rothana.[9] Because its legs were low to the ground, the walker had a relatively low top speed, but it also enjoyed greater stability. As its name suggests, the AT-TE was suitable for all terrains; not only was it able to climb sheer surfaces, it could also scale certain metal surfaces due to it's magnetized feet. Furthermore, the walker was capable of surviving in the vacuum of realspace as it was pressurized.[10] The AT-TE measured 22.02 meters in length and 9.57 meters in height.[2]

The AT-TE's most powerful weapon was a single mass-driver cannon located on the vehicle's dorsal surface, which gave the walker the purpose as a mobile artillery vehicle as well as a Tank. Four smaller ball-turret laser cannons were mounted at the front, and two others at the rear. The hexapod's armor could easily deflect small arms fire. The AT-TE could be pierced by tanksmasher rockets, which could result in the destruction of the vehicle's complex propulsion mechanisms.[2]

The walker's pilot sat in a forward compartment, while a gunner sat exposed atop the walker to operate the mass-driver cannon.[6] The standard version of the AT-TE carried 20 troops,[1] and some variants carried smaller All Terrain Recon Transports in their rear hold.[6] Their crews were filled out by an IM-6 medic droid, who attended to any injured clone troopers.[4]


Clone WarsEdit

Built by Rothana Heavy Engineering,[1] the All Terrain Tactical Enforcer became the principal battle tank of the Grand Army of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars.[2]

A blast from an AT-TE was Clone Commander Cody's chosen method in executing Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi when he received Order 66, since it allowed him to fire on Kenobi in a surprise attack, as Kenobi was not yet aware of the clones' betrayal. However, the blast only succeeded in knocking Kenobi into water, and he later escaped to safety.[11]

Age of the EmpireEdit

Improvised homeEdit

Captain Rex in the All Terrain Tactical Enforcer he lived in on Seelos.

Fifteen years after the end of the Clone Wars, Captain Rex, along with Commanders Wolffe and Gregor, were living in a modified AT-TE on Seelos.[12] They, along with the Lothal Rebels, later used the tank to evade Imperial forces, which consisted of three All Terrain Armored Transport walkers. The tank was able to destroy one AT-AT in the sandstorm before Rex ordered a direct assault on the other two while the Rebels escaped. The Mass-driver cannon, unfortunately, was not strong enough to penetrate the AT-AT armor.[13]

The AT-TE was able to sustain multiple shots from both walkers before Wolffe drove it into one of the walkers. The cannon was temporarily knocked out, but Gregor was able to restore power when the rebels returned and hijacked one of the AT-ATs, giving Rex the opening to shoot the last walker in the neck. The AT-TE was destroyed when the AT-AT collapsed on it.[13]

Galactic Civil WarEdit

Several AT-TEs were later modified by Rebel Alliance mechanics in order to be used as an attack vehicle during the Galactic Civil War. A number were modified with thicker armor and more powerful armament, becoming known as Elite AT-TEs.[8]

At least one AT-TE was used in the Imperial defense of the Kuat Drive Yards.[14]
