AT-TE . All Terrain Tactical Enforcer from the Star Wars universe. . The intimidating All Terrain Tactical Enforcer is an assault vehicle that offers support to the Republicís clone army, obliterating threats to friendly infantry and reinforcing tactical control. Wading through the savage din of battle, the walkerís sure-footed, six-legged stance allows it to cross crevices and climb otherwise impassably rugged slopes. Its massive turret-mounted missile-launcher bombards fixed emplacements or smites slow-moving aircraft, while six laser-cannon turrets swivel quickly to devastate faster line-of-sight targets. In the event of a close assault by enemy infantry, an AT-TE can dismount its two squads of troops to enter the fray and secure the immediate surroundings.

I wanted to improve the 4482 AT-TE set. So I ordered pieces from Bricklink and started building.
Almost a year later itís finally finished, bearing little resemblance to the official set.
In spite of the release of the new 7675 AT-TE, I am glad that I made this. Here you can see the opened cockpit revealing the pilot and behind him the spotter.
The front and rear legs may seem unstable, but most of the weight(1,6 kg) goes to the middle legs. So they only stabilize the AT-TE.
The best feature in my opinion: The 4 hatches can open up downwards to act as a boarding ramp, so the clones can dismount.
Iíve tried to give some detail to the walkerís rear. The 2 laser cannon turrets can point downwards.
Iím very pleased with how well the armor plates connect. The armor is 2 plates thick and covers the front and rear hulls completely.
Iíve made this hatch using hinge plates and clips. The two minifig hands on the heavy projectile cannon act as joysticks. The gun can point up and down.
I did a lot of research before I made the detail for the belly. Here you can see the rear. The two spear guns are being held by minifig hands, clicked in goggles.
By putting Ĺ pins inside technic plates I could create power cables. The radiator is a sticker from set 7661.
The roof can be taken of, showing the front and rear hull. Notice the ladder in the front hull.
The rear: 2 gunners, 6 clone troopers, a IM-6 Battlefield Medical Droid, 6 blaster rifles and a passage to the other hull.
Iíve used the Incredible Cross-Sections from Ep.II to make the interior.
Crew and passengers.
