         Our friends over at ACPin gave us their latest update: Echo Base.

    Echo Base Escape:
         When the transports retreated, the Rebel ground forces and snowspeeder squadrons covered their escape by delaying the Imperials for as long as they could. As the Echo Base defenses collapsed, the ground assault of the base by the Imperial snowtroopers have penetrated the interior. The Millennium Falcon was the last ship to deploy barely escaping the Imperial assault.

         One of the many unused and abandoned concepts from the original trilogy, the wheeled tanks were first sketched by Joe Johnston. The so-called "turbo tank" (also known as a Juggernaut) forms the armored backbone of a clone trooper force in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
