The Impeding Assault Tank (IAT), more commonly known as the Umbaran crawler tank, was a centipede-like ground vehicle developed by the Umbaran militia.

Description[]

The IAT was a shielded machine[1] that could be piloted by a single Umbaran.[3] It was armed with blaster cannons—four at the front and two at the rear, while ten covered the segmented bodies.[1]

History[]

An Impeding Assault Tank attacks the 501st Legion during the Battle of Umbara.

The only action the IAT had experienced was during the Battle of Umbara between the Grand Army of the Republic from the Galactic Republic and the Umbaran militia that had sided with the Confederacy of Independent Systems. As the clone troopers of the 501st Legion patrolled the planet of Umbara, one IAT suddenly sprang out from under the ground, catching many clones off-guard. Following the arrival of additional crawler tanks, the Republic forces used rocket launchers and thermal detonators to destroy the vehicles.[3]
