Star Wars` Imperial AT-AT Paper Model - by Sirius Replicas


PhotobucketThe All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) is a large, four-legged walking robot ("walker") introduced in The Empire Strikes Back and also appearing in Return of the Jedi. Walkers are vehicles from the Star Wars universe that traverse the landscape on mechanical legs. They are used by the Old Republic and the Galactic Empire for ground assault or transport. Throughout the saga, walkers have played a pivotal role in the fate of characters and the outcome of battles. Industrial Light and Magic is responsible for their animation and design, often using models, stop-motion animation, and relevant matte paintings to depict their presence in the films.
There are a variety of walkers: Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back introduces the All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) and All Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST), while Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and the Star Wars Expanded Universe feature numerous others. Walker variants have been merchandised and featured in popular culture. - Wikipedia

O "All Terrain Armored Transport", ou AT-AT walker, é uma espécie de transporte de 4 pernas e um veículo de combate do universo de Star Wars, usado pelas forças terrestres Imperiais. Com uma altura de mais de 20 metros, esses walkers intimadam a todos, e são usados tanto para efeito psicológico como tático.
Um AT-AT possui uma armadura galvanizada impenetrável à tiros de blaster, e assemelha-se a um fera gigante pela forma que se move em um campo de batalha. A "cabeça" de um AT-AT carrega o armamento principal: um par de canhões blaster médios localizados nas "têmporas" do walker, e dois canhões laser gêmeos pesados no "queixo".
Os pilotos do grupo de comando do AT-AT, que se localizam na "cabeça" a qual é conectada ao corpo principal através de um "pescoço" flexível, consiste em um comandante, um artilheiro e um piloto.  - Wikipedia
