You would have to contact Grigsby on that.

But I think the old boxed Avalon Hill game Panzerblitz was the main inspiration. But then, it provided inspiration for a lot of the hex-shuffling games hat came out of the US.

I come from a UK tabletop gaming background, WRG and TTG rules etc, so my reaction on seeing the original SP1 was "looks like 1/300 done on the computer".
