The Shadow AT-AT was an All Terrain Armored Transport walker covered with gleaming black armor. Utilized by the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War, the Shadow AT-AT was created solely for the purpose of intimidating enemy forces rather than performing stealth operations. Rebel Alliance soldiers found the Shadow AT-AT to be one of the most frightening specters on the battlefield.


An All Terrain Armored Transport[2] manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards, the Shadow AT-AT was an assault walker[1] covered with gleaming black armor.[2] The Shadow AT-AT stood at an imposing height of 15.5 meters, was armed with blasters and laser cannons, and was capable of carrying forty Imperial stormtroopers.[1]


The Shadow AT-AT was never intended to conduct stealth operations. Instead, it was created solely for intimidation,[2] which the walker's black armor effectively helped to enhance. The Empire typically deployed the Shadow AT-AT during night operations or on the dark surfaces of sunless planets as a way of instilling terror into the minds of enemies. The Shadow AT-AT functioned as a troop transport and assault walker.[1]


During the Galactic Civil War, the Imperial Military utilized the Shadow AT-AT as a terror weapon. The sudden appearance of a massive Shadow AT-AT emerging out of the night with weapons blazing was among the most frightening things that Rebel Alliance troops faced.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Shadow AT-AT was created for Hasbro's 2007 Star Wars: Titanium Series line of die-cast figurine vehicles.[1] In 2008, the Shadow AT-AT was provided an entry in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia.[2]
