Oh my god. It looks like an AT AT and a Stalker from Battletech had a baby. I WANT this now. This needs to be in SW.

Was this designed by Omni Consumer Products?

Just headcanoning away The All-Terrain Storm Walker (AT-SW) The AT-SW came about after four years of research and development as well as hundreds of simulations and trials. Whilst the Imperial Navy was growing as was the Stormtrooper Corps, the number of ground vehicles available to them was shrinking. The versatile and flexible AT-TE was being retired or put into garrison duty and away from frontline forces whilst many Army Officers and Corps Commanders felt that the AT-AT was a rather poor replacement for the AT-TE. Whilst tougher and better protected and far more intimidating, the AT-TE was also more flexible,… Read more »

I can’t help it, this walker reminds me of a Gizka, lol, those little critters from KOTOR.

fractalsponge,you are not working on the AT-AA walker? … or have such ideas

I wonder if repuslorlift ejection seats might make sense for a tall walker like this, or the AT-AT for that matter. If sensors in the legs detect that the vehicle is falling and cannot be stabilized, or the reactor has sustained enough damage to be susceptible to a catastrophic explosion, the crew needs to get out, fast. Conventional hatches work for tanks, but being stuck on the top of a burning, falling 6-story walker would kind of suck.

well, if the empire cared about it’s people enough for ejection seats…. they’d probably just design their walkers to not blow up when they fall over. but this is irrelevant… probably because they designed their walkers to blow up when falling over… on purpose. This prevents strategic information (aka the pilots) from falling into the hands of rebel scum, as well as more or less intact equipment.

In addition to what Fractal said, every default TIE comes stock with ejection seats. I’m sure that there are data wipe protocols for sensitive information, but that doesn’t mean vehicles are designed to kill their crew.

Hey I was just looking over some old designs and I had a question.

How do the side doors open on the (LAAV/i) as in vertically or horizontally?. I was trying to figure it out but couldn’t.

Ryadra777

I think is most likely the latter and it would open like a slide door.

How many of these walker does everyone guess can fit on the front half of Chi main bay? Two or Three? Seems like squatted down they take up the floorspace of two Broadswords side by side?

I’ll admit, I love it cause it reminds me of a Zentraedi battle pod.

What combat role is this filling for again? If I’d have to guess, supporting the initial offensive.

IIRC its more like a main battle walker kind of thing. The AT-AT for all its size is a glorified M113 APC with some big guns. Its a troop carrier, this thing is a dedicated ‘imma kick you in the teeth’ fighting vehicle.

The Imperial M113 is that dinky little repulsorlift troop transport from the Rebels cartoon. The AT-AT is more like a super-heavy IFV. The best real world analogue would be an up-gunned Israeli Namer.

Hey is there anywhere I can find stats on your ships like weapons and weapon types? I tried to find something but all I found was someone who thought medium turbolasers were super heavy turbos lol.

Search for “Star Wars Ships Design Technical Notes 1” on the site, it should be listed for you.

I was thinking more on the lines of how many weapons does it have and what types the total armament of each ship.

TheIcthala

We generally try to figure that out ourselves. Fractal doesn’t tend to keep a count unless it’s a commissioned ship with a certain armament specified by the client.
Some ships have estimates in their comment threads, but I don’t think there’s any database where they’ve all been compiled.

O I’m so happy I’e been wanting to see this in 4k and finished for quite a while now 😀

The one I am really anticipating though is the finished LAAV in 4k I really wanna see that one.

So this thing is cool, detail is awesome. The idea of projectile pods on the front similar to an assault gunboat are very nice. it looks like an appropriately armored biped. However, it doesn’t look anything like the ATAT. looks like it’s manufactured for a totally different regime. If this was for some other group, like maybe the mandalorian’s I might buy that.

This walker is actually heavily inspired by a walker that looks very similar to it in the EU comics they were seen protection the emperors citadel.

The X-1 Automadons?

Valoren

The X-1 was used by the rebels. Rather, the inspiration came from an imperial walker, which only appear in a single panel of the fifth issue of the Dark Empire II comic, defending the bridge leading to the emperor citadel as said previously.

No I don’t think the walkers had an official name as far as I know they’re unnamed. But Fractal did say those walkers are what he based the storm walker off of.
