I built this Communications Array to give a little feeling of a "set" to my LAAT/tr design. Its designed to allow for encrypted deep space communications when the LAAT/tr crew are on a deep infiltration mission behind enemy lines.
As you can see from the pictures, the unit folds flat and can be stored in two pieces in the LAAT troop bay. It was an addition that went with my concept of adding a "portable power station" to the right side, mid-point of the LAAT/tr design where one of the bacta tank doors originally was. There is still a door on the left side, however the right side has been replaced with a mini-reactor. I love small elements of asymmetry that add unique elements to a design. Thus the small communications station was born along with the power conduit that connects to a "power port" on the right side of the LAAT/tr.
