Encyclopedia > Walker Dropship

In the fictional Star Wars, the Walker Dropship or the Y-85 Titan dropship and AT Barge was an important vehicle used to deploy AT-ATs and AT-STs into planetary systems. It features a standard cockpit module and can accomadate four AT-ATs in addition to four AT-STs. The Walker Dropship is available on most Imperial ships. It also had two forward twin laser cannons for defence.


Though it was never seen in The Empire Strikes Back, the Y-85 is credited with having delivered walkers to the Hoth surface before the assault on Echo Base, according to the Inside the Worlds of The Original Trilogy factbook.

STAR WARS: Military Walkers (13656 words)
On the other hand, human walker crews all carry the variety of minor neuroses and inspirations that are a natural part of being a living animal for at least two decades, and these personal differences, and manifestations of informed volition, may affect the combat reactions of each walker, making each one slightly unique.
Walker variants do exist, but as a general rule of thumb they should only share a name in cases where one could conceivably be made as a refit or minor modification of another.
Dismembered remains of this walker are visible in the middle of the bridge.
