The T5-Beta Heavy Tank was largely based on the T4-B heavy tank (Wookieepedia), and was used by the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. The plans were captured during a raid on an Aridus manufactoring plant, and was first unveiled on the ice planet in the Battle of Hoth. The Tanks were slow and heavy, but this fault was vastly offset by the fire-power.
This tank, when in a group, could bring the most powerful of the imperial forces crashing down, such as the TIE Mauler, 2-M Saber-class repulsor tank, and sometimes even AT-ATs.
Even with its massive punch, the Rebel Alliance was forced to limit its use, because of the expense to manufacture.
