- "The pilot in the front hatch controls the tank, the shells, and the short range blasters. The commander in the top hatch controls the turret and the main cannon. You have to take out both chambers, otherwise the tank will remain operational."
- ―Ahsoka Tano, on how to combat an AAT
The Armored Assault Tank, also known as the AAT battle tank or the AAT-1 Hover Tank, was a tank vehicle used by the Trade Federation. The tank was designed for the Federation's Invasion of Naboo, and the AAT was later donated to the Confederacy of Independent Systems, where it served as one of its backbone infantry defenses and backbone vehicles during the Clone Wars. Many of the AATs used by the Confederacy were painted in Confederate colors, such as blue, however there were still tanks used by the CIS in the previous tan used by the Trade Federation. The tanks were also donated to Death Watch during their alliance with the Confederacy.
One of the most famous variants of the vehicle was done by Confederate General Lok Durd. He modified one of these into the Defoliator Deployment Tank. He attempted to test the vehicle on Maridun and the Lurmen there. However his prototype was destroyed by Anakin Skywalker and several others. This variant of the tank was later used by the Supreme Commander of the Droid Army, General Grievous, on Dathomir.
The tank was controlled by the pilot and the main cannon of the turret was controlled by the commander of the tank, which could sometimes be an OOM command battle droid, tactical droid, or even an organic in command of forces.
