This bad boy can run!


Recommended Posts

This made my day Dudley!

The kid in me: - Fantastic!!!!

The Engineer in me: - It may be able to run, but would you want it to...? The way I (have always) see(n) it is it has far too high a centre of gravity, far too narrow a track and - from the animation - a hyper extending knee joint, so if it did run, the would likely break its front legs, or fall over which - even stationary - is not a "nice" concept, but at speed...

I never could "square" the design being an "all terrain attack transport".......Now the Walkers on the other hand... (AT-ST)...seem a far more "considered" design!

Thank you for sharing this, you really have put a broad grin on my chops!
