LEGO Star Wars Clone Turbo Tank with Jedis, Battle Droids, and AT-RT | 75151 by LEGO
About this deal
A massive, ten-wheeled heavy assault vehicle manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards for use by the Galactic Republic's clone army, the HAVw A6 Juggernaut was used as both a troop carrier and a main battle tank. The Juggernaut was twice the size with 5 times the weight of the Republic's All Terrain Tactical Enforcer and was of one the largest ground vehicles built by KDY,  measuring to 49.4 meters in length.  It had a boxy hull covered in sloping thermal superconducting armor that could disperse both the heat and energy of incoming fire over a broad area rather than ablating or reflecting damage. A powerful, high-output reactor powered the tank's complex all-wheel drive system that could deliver power to each wheel as needed  for a maximum speed of 160 kilometers per hour.  Each wheel was independently mounted and suspended which added a layer of complexity to an already complicated drive system, but allowed for a surprising amount of articulation.  There are at least two different versions of instructions for this set. The differences for the second version are indicated in this inventory in the Alternate Items section with Match ID 99.
After the Clone Wars, the Imperial Army developed sleeker and more versatile combat vehicles. The various Juggernaut models were gradually phased out, and during the Galactic Civil War, they primarily served on battlefronts in the Outer Rim. Some fell into the hands of the Rebel Alliance. According to Imperial-turned Rebel General Crix Madine, the HAVw A6 Juggernauts tended to break down.  It appears that the HAVt B5 Juggernaut served as its successor, even though its purpose was different. A6s were deployed in the Battle of Hoth. By 13 ABY, they were one of a number of Clone Wars-era Galactic Republic vehicles being used by the Restored Empire faction of the Imperial Remnant.  For weaponry, it boasted a pair of forward turret-mounted blasters for anti-personnel use and dorsal rapid-fire rotary laser cannon turrets for anti-aerial use. Consequently, HCVw A9s were rarely deployed alone, and instead played supporting roles in larger armored formations, alongside Juggernauts, walkers, and other fast assault vehicles.  History [ ]Juggernauts also brought the destructive potential of an entire armored regiment to the battlefield.  A6 models were armed with a broad array of two anti-personnel laser cannons,  a dorsal turret-mounted rapid-repeating rotary laser cannon  manned by a clone gunner,  two retractable hull-mounted anti-personnel flex ordnance launchers, two twin forward-mounted anti-personnel light blaster cannons, and one dorsal turret-mounted heavy laser cannon. The armament granted the vehicle commander a bit of tactical flexibility.

Though there was a large view of the area, he was an easy target for hostile troops. This observation mast could be retracted when not in use. LEGO Star Wars Episode III, Revenge of the Sith is a LEGO subtheme of Star Wars that was created to coincide with the release of the sixth, but chronologically third, Star Wars film. The "Clone Turbo Tank" name possibly arose because at the time of the release of the prequels, Toy Biz owned the rights to produce toys named "Juggernaut" (as they had the Marvel license). Though Hasbro now has the rights to this name, the 2009 toy was still named Clone Turbo Tank. LEGO has also made 3 models of a Juggernaut, all called "Clone Turbo Tank". The first Clone Turbo Tank Lego set 7261, released in 2005, is an A6 Juggernaut model, as seen in Revenge of the Sith during the Battle of Kashyyyk. The second set 8098, released in August 2010, is a Juggernaut model with specifications similar to that of an A5 Juggernaut, as seen in the Clone Wars series during the Battle of Felucia. The third set 75151, released in May 2016, is based on the A6 Juggernaut from Revenge of the Sith during the Battle of Kashyyyk, similar to the first model.
The Heavy Assault Vehicle ( HAVw) A6 Juggernaut, more frequently called the Turbo Tank, was an armored Republic vehicle. The A6 was an upgraded version of the A5 Juggernaut featuring improved weapons and interior space. HAVw A6 Juggernauts were used fairly extensively in the Battle of Kashyyyk alongside AT-APs, where they went up against enemy NR-N99 tank droids and DSD1 dwarf spider droids.The HCVw A9 turbo tank first appeared in Gareth Edwards' 2016 anthology film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.  The vehicle was identified in the corresponding visual guide for the film on the same day.
