So this is what the inside of an AT-AT Imperial Walker looks like

We always wondered what was inside of the Empire's slow-as-turtles All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT), and now we know. It's so funny to see how minds of the '70s imagined sci-fi transports.

Looking at this diagram, we've learned that the bulk of the AT-AT holds 40 snowtroopers, there's a garage for speeder bikes and only about a bajillion cannons on its face.

All those reinforced knee joints and toe flaps? Worthless. We already know that AT-ATs are easily foiled by wires that can be looped around its legs. The Empire probably should have gone with treads, wheels or, you know, maybe hover technology.

Seeing the AT-AT's innards makes us sad. We were hoping for it to have a huge emergency Death Star-like laser in it, but alas, it does not.
