It seems the Star Wars universe bad guys always have the most intimidating warships, mechanized troop carriers, slick shuttle craft, bounty hunter starcruisers, planetary assault walkers, and individual clone fighters in the galaxy, with no disrespect to the Millennium Falcon or Luke's rebel X-wing.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is bound to be loaded with upgraded vehicles for deployment in the air, land, and sea, and now Disney/Lucasfilm has opened the spaceport garage to reveal a pair of the First Order's menacing new rides: the bulky, badass AT-M6, aka the All-Terrain Megacaliber 6, and the fearsome, five-mile-long First Order Dreadnought.
The two magnificent military weapons were showcased on the new installment of The Star Wars Show (see below), and were described as such:
All-Terrain Megacaliber 6
“It has a megacalibur six-laser cannon on its back. Think of it as a mobile heavy artillery walker that’s way bigger than a standard AT-AT. And while an AT-AT might move like an elephant, the AT-M6 has a more simian-like gait, which helps it stabilize the cannon.”
First Order Dreadnought
“The Dreadnought is a mandatory four-class warship and has two enormous orbital auto cannons, which can be used for larger-scale bombardments. It measures 7,669.72 meters in length, or 25,162.8 feet for those of you who never learned the metric system. The First Order Dreadnought also has 24 point defense anti-aircraft cannons on its dorsal surface.”
