And that sun'bitch fighter is so totally getting written into the Scythian Shorts from now on, along with the landships.

Too awesome to pass up putting those into fiction.

The bomber suspicially looks a lot like the Sonic Boom set from Creator. But it is so much better! Well done, sir.

It was inspired by the real-life Avro Vulcan bomber. I got to see the last flyable aircraft perform at Farnborough and it's an amazing aircraft, even capable of limited aerobatics in spite of its 100-foot wingspan. The Creator jet has a similar wing, but it seems to be a mix of several different fighter jets.

Watch out STDs, gun-blistering Landships and beautifully sleek and deadly Vulcans are on the loose!

Fantastic work! :guinness:

Little is known about these new starfighters, even within the ranks of the Britannian military. Prototypes were first spotted on test flights around remote military bases at about the same time that Admiral Blackdog returned from the T.L.A. homeworld of Refuge, where he had been stranded since the end of the Britannian invasion attempt. Official documents are heavily censored, but do reveal that the fighter is known as the Typhoon.

Image
Visual inspection suggests several similarities between the Typhoon and T.L.A. fighters. The sleek, blended wing/body aerodynamics are a major departure from standard Britannian design, but a common feature among T.L.A. aircraft; likewise the engines and windowless virtual-reality cockpit appear similar to those found on T.L.A. fighters such as the F.L.A.S.H.. Rumors are that Admiral Blackdog managed to steal a tremendous amount of T.L.A. design data during his escape.

Image
The Typhoon's armament is somewhat more conventional, similar to that found on the Spitfire light fighter; it carries a set of six light machine guns that are highly accurate and destructive at short range, but lack any sort of armor-piercing capability. Some aircraft have also been observed with a rocket pod mounted on top of the fuselage.

Image
In addition to its extremely powerful main engines, the Typhoon is equipped with two secondary wingtip thrusters for extra speed and agility.

Image
No one knows exactly where this fighter originated, but if it represents the future of Britannian technology, then the Queen's armies are about to become more formidable than ever.

Image
With Admiral Blackdog's return to the sector, the Britannian fleet has begun another phase of modernization.

Image
Patrol Gunboats are the backbone of the fleet, providing defense against enemy fighters and frigates.

Image
Admiral Blackdog himself created the first armed courier to use as a command ship during a raid into Scythian space. Since then, the design has become popular as an anti-frigate platform because of its raw speed and firepower.

Image
I love how this engine turned out.

Image
The first Patrol Monitors were hastily converted gunboats, created to supply badly needed anti-capital firepower to squadrons on the Scythian border. When Admiral Blackdog returned from Refuge, he developed production version of the Monitor. Combining agility, armor, and firepower, these ships pose a serious threat to much larger enemy vessels.

Image
Ark Royal- class carriers ensure Britannian aerospace superiority wherever they travel. Capable of launching entire squadrons of Spitfire fighters or Vulcan bombers, they can also throw up a massive curtain of flak and laser fire to deter approaching enemies.

Image
Their armament is geared towards fighter defense with two flak guns and two light laser cannons, but the Vulcan bombers provide more than enough anti-ship firepower.

Image
The Horatio- class is an upgrade of the Nelson-class which sacrifices anti-fighter weaponry for a trio of heavy lasers. A heavy torpedo launcher allows it to engage enemies at range.

Image

Image
After returning from Refuge, Admiral Blackdog formed the Bad Dogs, a special-forces unit made up of Britannian soldiers who had managed to escape with him. Their fleet consists of ships stolen from pirates or T.L.A. outposts during their flight to Britannian space.

Image
The Black Sun is Admiral Blackdog's command ship. Made from a T.L.A. railgun frigate and a pirate missile boat, it can rain down immense firepower at long range while outmaneuvering attackers who attempt to get close.

Image

Image
Tiger Shark frigates are a common sight among pirate fleets, and the Bad Dogs use this one when they want to travel without being identified. Armed with two light lasers to repel fighters and a missile launcher to disable their prey, they are useful in almost any situation.

Image
The Wolfhound may be Admiral Blackdog's greatest creation. Built from the scraps of several T.L.A. frigates and a pair of Britannian heavy lasers, it at first appears to be a faster and more fragile equivalent of the Patrol Monitor. But its greatest strength is the overdrive unit within its hull. Stolen from a T.L.A. Gamma-class frigate, this unit allows it to charge its lasers and then fire them at twice the usual rate for a limited time. The Wolfhound's crew run the unit to the edge of its operational tolerances to make it work with the heavy lasers, but it's worth it for the ability to outgun a cruiser.

Very nice. I'm digging the black and yellow colour scheme.

Thanks. The idea is that it's a common pirate color scheme, and Blackdog paints his ships that way so they can't be traced back to the Crown.

I'm planning on using these ships in a chat battle -- who is interested, and when would they be available?

I'm available today, but that's it for this weekend. On Sunday I won't have enough time.
