Blizzard 1 was a prototype All Terrain Armored Transport walker which served as General Maximilian Veers' personal AT-AT, with increased firepower and additional armor.

Blizzard 1 during the Battle of Hoth

The walker designated Blizzard 1 was 26 meters long and 15 meters high. It traveled at a speed of 60 km/h. It was armed with 2 heavy laser cannons and 2 medium blaster cannons . A crew of 1 pilot and 1 gunner sat in the cockpit under the command of the vehicle's commander. It carried 40 troops and 4 74-Z speeder bikes.


Blizzard 1 was an All Terrain Armored Transport that was constructed at Camp Culroon a secret research base on the planet Zaloriis between 0 ABY and 3 ABY. It was used by Colonel Maximilian Veers at the Battle of Zaloriis during the Galactic Civil War. After the battle, Veers was promoted to General.[1] Veers later took control of Blizzard 1 to lead the Imperial attack group Blizzard Force in its assault upon Echo Base at the Battle of Hoth, targeting and successfully destroying the Rebel main power generator.[2] Immediately after destroying the shield generator, Blizzard 1 was disabled when the snowspeeder Rogue 4, piloted by Derek Klivian and Kesin Ommis, crashed into its cockpit.[3] Though Veers survived the crash, albeit with serious injuries to his legs that forced him to rely on a small power chair carriage for the rest of his life, the rest of Blizzard 1's crew perished.

Behind the scenesEdit

In The Empire Strikes Back novelization, a dying Derek Klivian crashes into Blizzard 1, killing himself and Veers. This was contradicted by later sources showing both characters alive after Hoth. Later retcons incorporated this source by having the crash occur, with Hobbie surviving due to copious amounts of bacta therapy, and Veers receiving crippling injuries. Also, a flaw in the 2006 video game Star Wars: Empire at War, prevented Blizzard 1 from being toppled by snowspeeders, which has been fixed in a patch.

Veers was seen driving Blizzard 1 in the 2006 video game LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy and its 2007 compilation re-release.
