Real world vehicles that may inspire Star Wars walkers

Maybe I am wrong, but I found that Sd.Kfz. 251 and A7V may inspire Star Wars designers when creating famous AT-ST and AT-AT walkers.

Compare AT-ST and  front part of Sd.Kfz. 251 :)

Compare AT-AT hull and A7V Hull :). They also have similar performance: slow unstoppable machines 


  1. Your imagination is cooking, Fjodin!

  2. On a mythbuster episode they mentioned the large container cranes at the San Francisco Bay was one of the inspirations. And as you say it seems to include a little Germanic styling.
