USA is Anti-Immortal, Britannia is Pro-Immortal.

Britannia is old-fashioned and the USA is New fangled.

The USA did rebel in 1,7something under George Wash-a-ton.

You do know the Monitor was an immense failure, and was barely seaworthy, right?

While not good at sea travel, the Monitor was a very innovative gunboat in the case of her turret system and she preformed very well on rivers, so I wouldn't call her an immense failure.

If there were a USA presence on Dinoreich, I suspect Silent Sigfig would be aware of it. :P

Which makes it perfect for Brik Wars!  Zupponn is right though they did work very well on rivers despite not exactly having a shallow draft.  I like Monitors, - quite a few Monitor gunboats were built by various navies and they were the hot 'must have' item for a short while there.

Oh and yes, rafts and such like craft will figure on the waterways of Dinoreich  :wink:

You do realise that they would be considered to be 'modern and new fangled' on Dinoreich.  The only tank that's ever been seen on Dinoreich was the French F17 and as for helicopters the autogyro is still considered to be cutting edge out there.  Wow! - the Britannian garrison at Despond is really going to get a surprise  :o

i really like the idea of gun boats. i am working on a few ideas for some gun boats to be made after i finish the HatredTank, but for the moment, i only have a couple light, fast inflatable insertion craft and one small patrol boat that is under armed for anthing more than goint fast while running away, lol. (only has rear mounted weapons right now)

i would love to see an encounter between the steam punk factions and the high tech new-comers to the area. that could be interesting.

So what?  It'd be a perfect ship to fob off on a backwater diplomatic garrison.  Besides, the Monitor looks cool.

The difference is that while all of the other factions build walkers to travel through the forests of dinoreich, the USA burns the forests down.

This does not sound right. The Americans would leave up some trees so they could hang their Hammocks up.  :lol:

Also the forests on Dinoreich tend to make other rain forests look as dry as tinder.  All of which means that words for 'burn' are almost non-existent in the local native languages and dialects.

As per the Immortal Pact: In the event of any similar Assqeerious/PedoNuker discord style attack the Immortals are willing, ready and able to annihilate all, in defence of their allies. In this case the Britannian's.

By USA standards, the vietnam era equiptment were sending is anceint. Besides, america lost the  vietnam war. So don't get your panties in a bunch.

Napalm perhaps? Either way, one more disadvantage for the USA presence on dinoriech.
