An Armored Assault Tank used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

"Tanks. Is that the best they can throw at us?"
Rys, during the Ambush on Rugosa — (audio) Listen (file info)[1]

Tanks were armored cavalry ground assault vehicles that were capable of extreme mobility thanks to their tracks, legs, wheels or a repulsorlift. Used by armies as part of armored cavalry units, they were designed for front-line combat as well as intimidation. They typically boasted large laser cannons mounted on turrets or other powerful anti-vehicle weaponry, and were heavily armored to protect the troops operating the weapons and the propulsion systems inside.[2]

The Trade Federation,[3] InterGalactic Banking Clan,[4] Corporate Alliance,[5] Umbaran Militia,[6] Galactic Republic,[7] Confederacy of Independent Systems,[8] Galactic Empire,[9] and Alliance to Restore the Republic all manufactured or deployed tanks in some capacity.[10]
