"The Elite AT-AT is an AT-AT with thicker armor plating and heavier laser cannons. It is piloted by an elite crew pulled from the best vehicle crews in the Empire."
~In-game description of Elite AT-AT

The Elite AT-AT is a Hero class Destroyer Unit that hones well in defeating enemy shield generators whilst offering a generous amount of firepower and protection than its standard brethren but can also be upgraded to the AT-ACT.

Strategy Edit

Offensive Edit

The Elite AT-AT is identical to a normal AT-AT but with a much higher healthpool with superior long ranged damage. The Elite AT-AT is a slow but powerful juggernaut, on paper.

In practice, however, it has a key problem on an attack: the Shield Generator targeting preference. If any generators are on the enemy base it will lumber along in a straight line towards them, only blasting any buildings directly in its movement path, while ignoring any defenses. Making Rocket Turrets and Traps a very dangerous threat to its warpath.

AT-ST Vanguard

A pack of AT-ST walkers paving the way for the Elite AT-AT.

A good tactic would be to put smaller units around it, acting as a vanguard, as the AT-AT trundles towards its objective. Once the shield generators are down, it will target anything closest to it, making the most out of its damage potential; Its weight also crushes any walls, it steps on, paving the way for its auxiliary forces.

Defensive Edit

When employed on the defense (such as in a Heroic Defense event) it does have good damage output but its speed is crippling; in order for it to be able to get to multiple enemy units you will likely have to land it close to a dense cluster of them, who could therefore concentrate fire on it to destroy it far too quickly.

If you do intend to use it, try to land it in a way that it will move into the middle of your densest base cluster around the HQ firing outward at approaching units. This way it will hopefully last long enough to do some real damage.
