    I would say this is the "sound" that imitates soldier's march.

    However I have heard it only in songs. This is oldfashion word.

    A child when he "plays soldier" can march and say "Раз, два, аты-баты.. "

    Детская считалочка:
    «Аты-баты, шли солдаты,
    Аты-баты, на базар,
    Аты-баты, что купили?
    Аты-баты, самовар!»

    Взрослая песня:
    «Аты аты баты,
    близок час расплаты...»
