However as a Empire mate, I will give you one tip: "Never put traps close to wall! Never."
When enemy Hailfires come and try to breach your walls to get to the turrent, their splash damage falling on walls will destroy yout traps

basel - Good Base Design, but could use some improvement.
Now, as a Rebel Commander, advising a Empire Commander how to make Rebel Attacks "harder" might seem treasonous, but I love challenges and the harder I find a Empire Base the more "fun" I have when I obliterate it!
SUGGESTIONS / FEEDBACK:
- While the current design worked well for Levels 2 to 5, now that you are Level 6 and have access to the Armory I would suggest you consider a Corner Base Design. Heroic Defense "Events" are a great way to earn Data Fragments and Corner Base Designs are easier to defend against Heroic Defense deployed Units. Keep in mind that during a Heroic Defense Event the Units are only deployed where you see the GRID in your Base Editor. HD deployed Units don't spawn on the edges so with a Corner Base they won't spawn, say in the Upper Corner.
- TRAPS - The placement of Traps is one of "trial and error". What worked in the lower levels won't work in the upper levels. You don't want to make your Trap Placements "obvious" like putting walls around a IDT (LATT) Trap since this only provides an "obvious target" for Rebel Commanders. Also you don't want to place them where they can get "Splash Damage". The best location is in Range of a Turret (to help pick off any Vanguards), but out in the open in a common Rebel Unit "deploy location" which you learn after several attacks.
- I have to disagree with Vorchild. The reason for this is the COMMON RULE is expect an Attack from Players which are 2 Levels higher than your HQ. For a Level 6 HQ you can expect Level 8 Units (and maybe even on rare occasions Level 9 Units). Of course, if your Level 6 Base is attack by Level 4 or Level 5 Units it should do well - so a word to the wise - plan for the BEST but expect the WORSE.
basel - Maybe my Secondary Base (currently being upgraded to Level 5) might see you on the Battlefield some day, so maybe I will be able to "instruct" you further then... LOL Helping Other Have "Fun"...
