Yes. It's hard to do, but it is possible. You almost have to wait underneath the legs for it to happen. ; )

In my experience, whenever you touch the bottom of a foot of an AT-AT, you instantly die.

It's easy to die uner, but it's not that easy to get kills with. One, you can't see underneath you, and two, the people down there are more manuverable and if they have any sense at all they can no get squashed. But your teammates constatnyl spawning from the AT-AT, they get smashed all the time.


God is a placebo with nasty side effects.

Don't expect to crush any Rebels with it. No enemy is going to take the effort to put himself under the foot. And if they try, the Imperials spawning at the AT-AT will wipe them up quick.

It's very easy to step on ally Pilots trying to repair the AT-AT, unfortunantly.

you know in real starwars life an AT-AT moves 80 kmph at top speed ? they might look slow but think about it... big legs and large strides.

so in reality, Atat moves like a faster then a elephant so in theory why destory the generator with lasers when you can just smash it to pieces?

the official starwars resource book with the techniquical specs to every piece of equipment including the EU ones.

and if you watch the movie and think of the ingame hoth level, you know just before it cursors on the map to choose your class you see like a massive ice rink ?

in the movies the atat's cross that in a matter of hours or less now think of the map with those ingame atats moving at their speed... in theory it would take more like a year to cross it to get to the generator if they were that slow.

I made an account just for this;

TK, At-Ats actually can move quite fast. If it isn't 80kmp, it's a figure nearly as high.

Look at the scene with Luke chasing an AT-AT with the grapple gun. It's moving slower than Luke running. That's not 80 kmph.

I was going to be an ass and give a link to the main starwars site with it on, but they haven't put down its speed....
but the what they do give is 100% accurate to my book...

and Vigilate, I am glad you agree and in board theory you are a n00b and so am I and TK isn't... so what you call some one who was shown as a noob infront a bunch of noobs ? uber noob ?

In anycase, the books are approved by Lucas, maybe they didn't have the walker moving that fast for technical reasons in the movie.

would you want to move your car 80 kmph in a car parking spot ? I don't think so but the same answer applies here you slow down.

it states in the book excatly "on flat terrian the All Terrian Armoured Transport can travel at around 80 kmph"


I also looked at the Atst speed rating as well... and thats even faster...

Not to mention, 80kph is the max speed on normal terrain, this land was icy, packed with snow, and possibly on a slant.

ATST's go at 110 kmph ...

Swoop = top speed - some can exceed six hundred kmph ...

your agruing AT-AT's are fast ?

The reasons they had them going slow i think was

(a) They want their Ifantry support to be able to keep up.

(b) They don't want squash their Ifantry and At-St support.

(c) They probably didn't reckon on AT-ATs being deployed in sub-zero temps, and if they moved any faster thay might have broken a leg cause tha cold could freeze up some of its systems and joints.

(d) If they made them go 80kmph in SWBF the rebs. wouldn't have a chance.

Well, you wouldnt want to be running your at/at through slippery ice and snow, so they probably made things slower. However, its an ALL TERRAIN armored transport, so it could probably haul @$$ in the desert or something.

On the Battlefront website I was looking at the AT-AT specs, and it can go 60 kmph... I think...

Regardless of what the book or the site says, your argument was an At-At is slower than running speed. 60kph still proves you wrong.

I never said that... don't put words in my mouth...!

I just said that it's not 80 kmph, which is just too fast for an AT-AT.

Regardless, you were implying an At-At moves slower than running speed, and when I paraphrased you, you accused me of putting words in your mouth.

*Sigh*

An AT-AT doesn't move 80 kmph, as said on the official Star Wars Battlefront website. That is what I am saying. On Hoth, AT-AT's moved slower than running speed. This is an example of slow-moving AT-AT's.

hmm.. the information doesn't conflict actually... 60 in the book as well.

80 was for the replusorlift atat i got the figures mixed up but still you said the atats move at walking speed.

if you think about it, thats about how fast cars go on like a highway...imagine seeing an at-at going that fast...i really couldn't picture an at-at going that fast, it would look like a running dog or something

It only seems to look slow because it is so big...

Yeah... But most highways are like 65 or so... But still it's pretty fast...

Oh, so you're saying that during this charge on the rebel base they chose to move only 20 km/h? When it was imperative that they reach the base in time? I think not, sorry to say so.

OK, for those not familiar with the metric system:

17-25 km/h: Average human running speed.
40 km/h: World record running speed.
100 km/h: 60 mi/h.

1mi: About 0,6km. Give or take.

So 80km/h= 48 mi/h exactly (80x.6).

80km/h? No f***ing way.

As for the technical books saying it: Don't go there. Just don't. Those books contradict each others like Bible writers on crack, and they are all approved by Lucas. Which means Lucas doesn't give a damn anymore (which are old news).

Slippery ice? It'll take a very slippery surface to topple a 200-ton AT-AT (a tank is 60 tonnes, so go figure the weight of the AT-AT). I can't picture an AT-AT slipping, I just can't.

Quote:
Swoop = top speed - some can exceed six hundred kmph ...
Riiight... And if I remember correctly from those books, landspeeder altitude ceiling is, what, 500 meters ?

Oh, and 600km/h: 360 mi/h.

About the joints freezing? Warm machinery doesn't freeze that fast. Remember, they were straight out of their drop ships, which can't have been as cold as Hoth. And if their engines were not warm by the time they left the drop ships, they would get warm soon enough.

Either way, machinery does most often not freeze. Not enough moving parts (and even the moving parts, like the axles, don't freeze. That simple).
