Anakin Skywalker gets the use of six vehicles in his journey through the galaxy, and we have details on each of them. Unfortunately, these details are only accompanied by screenshots and not by a witty trailer, but I suppose we'll forgive them just this once.
From a young age, Anakin Skywalker was a special pilot for the Republic. Throughout the Clone Wars Anakin most frequently piloted his customized Delta-7B Aethersprite light interceptor. The ship is small, but effective for completing space missions, which is exactly what it is utilized for throughout LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. Playing as Anakin you will take on battalions of CIS starfighters and complete puzzles to help the Republic protect the galaxy from the CIS.
This light walker is used in the Clone Wars primarily as a mobile cannon. Quick movement across the battlefield is paramount to success in LEGO Star Wars. The AT-AP’s cannon will not only devastate opposing troops and vehicles, but will also destroy buildings and the hardened silver LEGO.
The AT-RT, or All Terrain Recon Transport, is used by the Republic as a scout vehicle. They are designed to be light and can quickly move from area to area. In LEGO Star Wars they are used to get across ground battle areas in a hurry.
AT-TEs, or All Terrain Tactical Enforcers, are the meat and potatoes tank of the Republic. They are heavily armored and equipped for taking and delivering major damage. Not only does this vehicle dish out and take punishment, it also gets troops from one point to another on the battlefield. In LEGO Star Wars III this vehicle is nearly impossible to destroy. While slower moving then other vehicles, this tank takes a beating and delivers a punch when it arrives.
The BARC speeder, or Bike Advanced Recon Commando, is used primarily to quickly navigate around the battlefield. It is the most readily available vehicle in LEGO Star Wars, and many can be found on the battlefield at no additional cost to the player. Even though its weapons don’t pack a hefty punch, the BARC speeder still packs enough firepower to turn rank-and-file clankers into dust.
The LAAT/i is one of the great vehicles in the Republic fleet. Not only is it used as a means of troop transportation, but it also serves as a light gunship in most major Clone Wars-era battles. In LEGO Star Wars III these ships are primarily used to fly around capital vessels and destroy items to help solve puzzles during various missions. The LAAT/i are also useful when exploring the galaxy to complete space combat missions.
LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars is due to be released on March 22nd in North America, March 25th in Europe, and March 30th in Australia. For a sneak peek of the game, check out the demo, downloadable from here.
