Imagine if that damn observation mast was omitted and the heavy laser cannon on the roof was replaced by a mass driver cannon…
…or two?

Or a miniaturized SPHA cannon. Widen the rear body a bit, replace trooper quarters with supplemental reactors and retrofit with retractable anchors to stabilize for a fast, ultra heavy artillery platform. The new purpose would provide rapid, and total command of any captured area. Once deployed, it’d effectively be able to provide area denial to heavy ground/air assets. No frigates would be able to come close.

fractal, have you ever considered doing the AT-HE? It’s mentioned in official publications, but there are no images. Since it’s a “Heavy Enforcer”, I’ve always pictured it as an AT-AT scale version of the AT-TE, much like how the -A6 is a super-sized version of the -A5. Maybe with some AT-AT features thrown in, like the view-slit window on the cockpit. Thoughts?

There’s some concept art from ROTS/AotC

Link? Do a search for All-Terrain Heavy Enforcer on Google and half the results are fractalsponge projects and most of the other half are of other walkers that aren’t the AT-HE.

AT-HE pics what I found so far…

Based on the cockpit design, that looks more like a long-legged version of the AT-TE, not a larger walker…

Note the armament on the body, and EaW mods

Not buying it. Concept art pretty clearly became the AT-TE, just with shorter legs.

This was from ROTS art AT-TE well introduced beforehand

And the AT-TE made brief appearances in RotS. Bottom line, there isn’t enough there to clearly state, “this is a completely new vehicle, and not just artistic license taken when drawing an AT-TE.”

I’ll accept that answer and concede

Don’t mean to be a necro, but the ATTE is essentially perfect the way it is. It fulfills the role of a mobile command unit that can traverse nearly any terrain that would be considered impossible if it were any larger. It was always intended to be a relatively low profile utalitarian armor piece, whereas the ATAT was built both to strike fear and be an elevated weapons/command platform.

All weapon systems are a compromise in order to meet mission requirements. A big drawback of the AT-TE is its cramped interior; it’s designed for cramming in as much crew and troops as possible, with little or no room left over for anything else. The main gunner doesn’t even get to ride inside without opening the hatch, which leaves him horribly exposed to snipers, area effect weapons and other environmental factors. The AT-AT, for all its other flaws, has 4-5 times the troop transport capacity, and is much better suited to longer duration missions by converting a portion of the… Read more »

Tactical in its name

Exactly. It may be perfect (if any design compromise can ever truly be considered such) for tactical combat, but other walkers are better suited to longer-duration operations. Fractal confirmed elsewhere that his walker designs (the -SW, -SE and -SP) include basic long-term living facilities:bunks, freshers, food prep station, etc. My visual for the AT-HE is the AT-TE’s basic frame, but on a larger scale (in the AT-AT size range), sort of a precursor to the AT-AT, with some obvious visual similarities, like replacing the glass-box cockpit with an AT-AT style view slit, or having a dorsal turret that looks like… Read more »

Where is the facilities and source for it? wondering

CRMcNeill

CRMcNeill

Someone on one of the gaming websites extrapolated seating capacity for AT-ATs based on its film dimensions instead of the WEG ones. He figured it could seat 80-90 troops, not just 40. Based on that, I figure that the heavy and medium GAVs’ listed troop capacity is for long-term deployments, with half of the passenger space converted to bunks. For short-term deployments like Hoth, the rest facilities can be stripped out, doubling the passenger capacity. For the AT-AT in particular, I picture the lower deck being kept as troop seating and speeder bike storage, and the upper deck converted to… Read more »

If anything, I thought the ICS AT-AT might be a tad undersized.

PhoenixKnight
Guest
PhoenixKnight

I would have to agree ICS AT-AT looks extra roomy for just a platoon and too small to fit AT-ST stated to capacity

CRMcNeill
Guest
CRMcNeill

Has anyone ever found an actual use for folding up a pair of AT-STs in order to load them on an AT-AT?

Another point on the AT-AT is that there’s enough vertical clearance on the existing decks that you could conceivably fit a third deck in there somewhere.

If I recall correctly (it has been a while since I read my copy) the ICS also said that the shown configuration was for long-term deployments, and it hold up to 200 or 300 if needed.

This discussion has diverged from the Juggernaut to the AT-AT.

Oh my god, you are one talented bloke. Also, are there any websites that assist with the stats of these things? Specifically your legends designs, I love them!

So Fractal since you said that this is a vanilla Juggernaut does that mean there will be other Juggernaut variants you will make?

StarkillerXI
Guest

Hopefully so. There’s so much that can be done with the A6.

Concerning the official mass of the Juggernaut, do you think the 1000 ton figure is realistic. Personally I was always a little skeptical, since some WWII german landkreuzer projects were expected to weight roughly the same or higher, despite being much smaller in volume.

Space Age materials maybe? I mean most of those World War II designs would have been good old steel, no titanium or advanced composites of any kind right?

That’s just a fellow fan’s wild guess for you though. Science is an imprecise thing in these cases.

I wonder if an imperial gunner ever blasted off the observation mast with the main gun?

I would hope that the gun control system wouldn’t allow you to shoot yourself, kind of like the interruptor that prevented some planes from shooting off their own propellers.

And hey, at least the sensor mast is a *fixed* obstacle. Might still be susceptible to Acts of Force, but what isn’t?

By away Fractal how far are you with the Imperator redux progress right now?

Ia always wonder what the AT-AT would have been if it was just this on legs.
Would it have just been Fractal’s AT-SP?

Noah

For a second I thought you were asking about what would happen if a Juggernaut rammed into an AT-AT’s legs, in which case the walker would probably topple over.

So I check that in legends the A6 Juggernaut is measure at 49.4 meters long, 19.6 meters wide and 30.4 meters tall (which I guess is with the watch tower active) and it speed is at the maximum of 160 km/h. (99.4194 mph)

But I know that Fractal will ignore that and will give out a more logical measurement of this Juggernaut right Fractal?

Still my wheels-down favorite piece of film-officialized formerly-EU armor (narrow category, granted). Considerate of that spyhop-tower’s designer to include a railing.

Still waiting for the S-1 Firehawk to show up, or at least something more capable than the Jedha cargo truck or an AAT.
