Pledged - over to you...

Recommended Posts

I have three ideas so far:

Italian Dreadnought, imagine the Affondatore Battle Carrier without the flightdeck and instead of the aircrafts and the torpedo boats on the sides with a main and a raised turret on each side. Maybe only on the aircraft side, keeping the torpedo boats. Also an aircraft catapult, maybe instead of the torpedo turret, spawning a recon plane.

Italian surface skimming fortification. The mobile fortress of the Pope. With weather control generator, you know, sent by heaven and stuff. Maybe multiple rockets.

French (heavy) destroyer, imagine two Requin Corvettes, side by side with a heat lancette in the front.

I not quite sure, maybe I will pledge that level too, but I think I can't afford that much money -.-

My idea would be for a static version of the Zhanmadao and Dun floating Bastions as proper Fortifications for the Chinese Land game.

 

Perhaps lose, or have a few weapons change about to make them different. But yeah, cheaper static forts would be nice.

Wowser that would be an extraordinary model - I do fear it would be too similar powered to the much disliked dreadbots ?

Possibly! But my take is that one of the reasons the Dreadbots are disliked is because they ignore a lot of previous aesthetic. A DreadSquid doubles down! 

There are a bunch of the Dreadbots I dislike, but I think a properly statted DreadSquid would be awesome, for example. And I can think of few ways to spend a design that are as impressive and cool!

I must say, I'm quite taken with the idea of a DreadSquid, especially with Squadron Support (Zarigani) or Carrier options. It couldn't be more frustrating to face than the LoIS or KoD carriers...

Or even better, not with Zarigani, but even smaller vessels :D Squids on a SAS tray size thing... similar to other nations with similar sized vessels

Couldn't you just look at the Ika a bit closer, so it appears bigger? :)

Not really hard to balance a dreadsquid. Just make sure that boarding is its only really powerful attack and its speed is such that it won't get to do it without skillful maneuver and planning. Make that boarding attack capable of one-hit-sinking a dreadnought and it still would be ok, since you would be paying a dreadnought worth of points to kill any one (or maybe two) ships in the enemy fleet.
This same principle is why the close-combat focused dreadbots are not that unbalanced, it is only when they get very good ranged firepower that they become a real balance problem.

The unkillability would only be a minor issue so long as it did not have aquatic assault. That way it would need to surface to make its kill, giving a one turn window to lay on the pain each time the dreadsquid does so itself.

I won't be able to pledge the Adm of the Fleet but I've been thinking... what about a Russian Flying Driller?  a Med or Large flyer, giant drill on the nose... "rams" other flyers (or ships if you give it low level flyer) then disgorges a bunch of boarders onto the ship- basically take their land driller and put anti-gravs on it?

Well said make it one hull with alternative drop-ons? 

Here what drew for Kingdom of Denmark.. went with idea from my head and some references.

Basicly replacement small for Destroyer and escort.. and replacement medium for carrier as what can imagine they do after using lens lease and ask prussians nice for the tesla torpedos XD

The torpedo cruiser suppose to be ranged  unit that flanks is freebie~ ;)

Edit: Sorry, did post on my phone.. so corrected the link. Still quite unwell with this cold. >_<

How about a submarine carrier that instead of launching normal aircraft or subs it launches subs than can also function as low level fliers.  No real offensive ability just a support ship.  Maybe combat coordinator die hard or a similar combat coordinator ability.  Not sure who it would be for and you have the option of making it a large model or making it a medium model that attachest to squadrons.  Making it large may make more sense.

Sounds like that ship would suit the HEC.

What about a "workhorse" unit that can deploy and redeploy special fortifications such as turrets etc?
