AT-AW: The All Terrain-Armoured Walker

  • Intent: To create an armoured command walker for the First Order.
  • Image: Ralph McQuarrie
  • Canon Link: None.
  • Restricted Missions: None.
  • Primary Source: None.
  • Manufacturer: First Imperial Corps Of Engineers.
  • Model: AT-CW
  • Affiliation: The First Order.
  • Production: Mass-Produced
  • Material: Durasteel
  • Classification: Troop Transport
  • Role: Command Walker.
  • Size: Large.
    35m high, 40m long
  • Weight: Heavy
  • Minimum Crew: 1
  • Optimal Crew: 6
  • Propulsion: Quadrupedal
  • Speed: High: 80 km/h
  • Maneuverability: Low.
  • Armament: Moderate.
    2x Heavy Laser Cannons
  • 5x Repeating Blasters
  • 2x Mortar Launchers

[*]Defenses: Very High.
  • High grade durasteel armour
  • Shield Generator.
  • Magnetic Plating
  • Serrated leg plating.

  • Squadron Count: 6
  • Maneuverability Rating: Low
  • Passenger Capacity: 65
  • Cargo Capacity: 3000kg

  • Armoured: The AT-AW is a walker which has received heavy armour plating. At its thickest, around the main body, it is 0.5 meters thick. At its thinnest, it is 0.25 meters thick around the 'Neck'.
  • Shield Generator: Encased within the inner hull of the walker, is a shield generator. Although not nearly as powerful as models used on star destroyers, or corvettes, it will repel fire from most targets.
  • Cutting Edge: The edges of the AT-AW's legs are specially serrated, thus avoiding the flaws in the walkers design from the Galactic Empire. Any pilot trying to use the time honoured 'Ring Around The Rosie' strategy will be sorely disappointed.
  • They Came From Behind!: The AT-AW is vulnerable to attacks from the rear. Although devastating when attacking head, or even side on, it is vulnerable from the rear.
  • Power Drain: Reversing the polarity of the walkers plating, although efficient at nullifying attempts to board the walker, causes power fluctuations. This may disable the shield generator temporarily.
  • It Handles Like Poodoo!: The AT-AW is a gangly, and awkward beast to manoeuvre. She's at her best when charging head first to the enemy, not trying to tango with them.
  • Unbalanced: The laws of physics state that higher the centre of gravity, the more prone to falling it is. Although it would take a lot of firepower, tipping the walker is a valid tactic.

Description: The All Terrain-Armoured Walker is the latest iteration in the First Order's mechanised arsenal. Tall, towering and bristling with weaponry, the AT-AW sits as the First Order's attempt to create a weapon whose sheer presence will deter dissent, and cause its enemies to turn away in terror.

The walkers structure is similar to that of the classic style of the AT-AT model of General Veers. It stands nearly twice as tall, and about double as long. This was done for the able to carry more than a platoon of troopers, and be able to quickly deploy them across the battlefield.

There have been other design changes. A light shield generator sits inside the walker. It will not be able to spare the pain of consistent, or prolonged artillery fire. However it will be able to absorb attacks from opposing tanks and strafing runs.

Congruent with this, the walker sits to rectify mistakes which saw the needless deaths of hundreds of imperial lives across history, the usage of harpoons and suicidal boarders. Through the serration the edges of the legs, when a cable is pulled tautly, the pressure put on it will force its own severance. Outside of that, the plating is able to be magnetised, deterring boarders who'd try to sabotage the walker through its blind spots.

The armament has also been improved, with an increase in the weaponry array deployed. The cockpit has received two mortar launchers, designed to deliver light artillery blasts. Along with this, comes the extra repeating blasters. Two of which, are now fired from slits from within the walker, with one mounted below, to wipe out troops, trying to outmanoeuvre the walkers weaponry. This leaves the AT-AW with all flanks covered, but its rear.

Swarming the walker with boarders, and the countermeasures being enacted would drain the shield, and make it vulnerable.

It is able to be taken down, sure. It will just be able to tank a lot of damage.

However, if you would like me to write up another weakness, I'd be more than happy to oblige.
