The Low Altitude Assault Transport/carrier (LAAT/c), was a LAAT carrier gunship employed by the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. These atmospheric transports were also referred to as AT-TE carriers.
Engineering LAAT/carrier variant was designed primarily to airlift assault walkers and other heavy cargo into battle. Similar in design to the LAAT/i version, the carrier gunship removed the infantry model's troop hold, and featured heavy-lift agrav drives that held payloads in place under the main hull.
A wide wingspan allowed for maximum distribution of repulsorlift vanes when carrying heavy weights. Most of the LAAT/i's weapons were not present, leaving only the three anti-personnel laser turrets. Its heavy magnets could hold AT-TEs and more.
A modified version of the LAAT/c had a troop deck that could hold up to 40 troops.this is the version of the LAAT/c that i built.
At the Battle of Geonosis, these carriers transported walkers onto the front lines. Some four hundred LAAT/c gunships were deployed during the battle.
During the Battle of Teth, the 501st Legion used LAAT/c gunships to insert AT-TE walkers to scale the base of the B'omarr monastary.
During the Clone Wars, carrier gunships were known to transport Saber-class fighter tanks, RTT transports, and both AT-XT and AT-TE walkers. In the Imperial Period, they often airlifted in PX-4 Mobile Command Bases.
