i prefer the at-at but the ai seems to make better use of the at-tes widespread weaponry, also if they would fight and they were facing each other the at-at would win because of it's heavier firepower while the at-te would be stuck with more spreadout weapons that were all weaker then the at ats guns

I preffer the AT-AT just because of it's inherent awesomeness
And the added tactical considerations of snowspeeder tripwires.

Yep, the same way that the German "supertank" of WII is an improvement over the M1 tank because it's bigger.

Meh, you can flank an AT-AT so easy, they suck so much they blow. At least an AT-TE can turn around! It's probably why levels with an AT-AT in BF1 were so small or had no decent vehicles, because as soon as you get behind it..POW! Also, Snowspeeders=win.

There must be a way to get both the AT-AT and the AT-TE in a map at the same time so someone could see which would win.

I think their was a mod map made that pitted them against each other...

I would say the AT-AT. It's got stronger armor, and kick ass cannons (at least it did in BF1). Although the AT-TE's top cannon does pack a punch, it would really hurt the 'AT if it got it in the neck. I still gotta say the AT-AT wins. Of course if the AT-TE can get behind it then it's a diffrent story, but neither are exactly agile. I think it would get destroyed before it managed to lumber into position.


Not being paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't trying to kill you... or does it?

The AT-TE has those really fast missiles now which also packs a punch. Someone has to actually try it out properly.

According to the RPG stats, the AT-AT is much stronger than the AT-TE. However I can see AT-TEs still being used on some backwater worlds or as support for AT-Ats, as they are pretty good aganist infantry with all they're laser cannons.

There is: Myrkr: Show of Force for the Battlefront I. It doesn't use the original AT-TE, it uses the modded Liberator-class AT-TE(it only looks different though).

Neither, at least in Battlefront II. Now, their primary cannons do diddily-squat against groups of infantry; I HATE trying to hit them dead on.

In BF1 they do a better job, mainly due to AoE areas... then again ALL AoE weapons got nerfed.

Oh, snowspeeder can't do jack against ATAT.

A careful ATAT pilot would park the two ATATs parallel when they move, leaving no room in between for the snowspeeder.

If not, they will be parking next to a mountain/hill...

Go back to shooting at his neck I would say.

The AT-AT is better, but I like the AT-TE more. Since I like to use Count Dooku and jump on to the top of the AT-TE and kill the soliders in the gunner position.

Hmm...you know that the cable goes right through the other ATATs legs? The cable is long enough so that you can basically go around both of them, like they're just one fat ATAT. If they spead out far enough that the snowspeeder can't go around both at the same time, it leaves plenty of room for it to go in between both of them anyway so, technically, that trick doesn't work. Neither does lining them up, you can go right in between the other's legs.

yea I think that the AT-AT could beat the AT-ET. But one advantage the AT-ET has is that the tow cables wouldn't be able to go around it that easy, then the at-at.

You can try with a snowspeeder next time then.

If you leave enough space between the ATATs there is hardly enough room to go between them, but wide enough to cause the wires to overstretch...

Also you have to pilot really well, cause getting rammed by the ATAT will kill you, as will slamming on that big piece of metal. You also have to dodge its cannons.

dodging it is pretty easy, it is just the ground troops and the turrets that are sort of the hard part to get by.

I don't think the tow cables would work on the AT-TE at all.

Obviously, it's legs are about the size of an average solider. Plus it would be rather stupid to fly that low.

I would go with the AT-AT, if for nothing else for the memories it brings of seeing ESB in theaters when I was a tike. In the game, I generally play rebellion era, so I have little knowledge on the prequel era tech.

I like both eras... Too bad some more interesting aspacts or the machines are not shown in the movies... like, ATAT have the option of carrying bike squadron, which is obviously not useful in Hoth.

Well, if anything, they go backwards from 4-6 and 1-3 (ha ha, so's the nuimbering!)
I've made a pretty brutal explanation for why I think this may be, ask later.

I gotta go with the AT-TE. The AT-TE has the advantages of: lower height(tow cables don't work, less of a blind spot underneath/in front of it), rear guns(no rear blind spot like on the AT-AT), better turning(pretty self-explanatory). The AT-AT's height may give it a better line of sight range, but it also leaves its underside that much more vulnerable. Besides, one of the AT-AT's greatest assets was the intimidation factor. Seeing such a huge war machine would tend to scare enemy forces and make them less effective in combat. I'd say this probably wouldn't work on the Clone forces in the AT-TE. And to be fair, we didn't see any real threats to the AT-AT's, just infantry. Actual mechs like an AT-TE would definitely have to be at least a threat to the AT-AT.


My old sig from 5 and 1/2 years ago was lame so I replaced it with this signature that says nothing.

1 on 1, AT-AT vs AT-TE, I say the AT-AT would win in a straight up fight between the two, the AT-TE's tail guns are usless against it and the ability not to get tripped up by snow speeders is not important as their are none present.

However in terms of overall use the AT-TE is the better choice. It has weapons on all sides, has a lower profile making it harder to assault. Really the AT-AT seems more like a long range shock weapon that needs the support of infantry and other vehicles. The AT-TE is effective on it's own.


Not being paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't trying to kill you... or does it?

If the AT-TE wasn't fighting fair it would win, it could get really close to it and shoot it's legs or get along side it and do the same, and the AT-AT would have no chance of hitting it.

ATAT would beat the crap out of the ATTE, it's bigger, more heavily armoured and has heck of lot more firepower (or at least it is supposed to) the only advantage the ATTE has is that it can cover itself from all sides

Well, In Game, My guess is ATTE being way better, due to more people piloting that thing, being able to do more DPS, even when it comes to frontal attack.

But in-universe ATAT is way tougher, and work as a great transport.

Disagree, the AT-AT is only faster than a slug when playing Empire at War, now THEN it makes a good transport. Otherwise, you can outrun it on foot.
