Official Thread: Ottoman Empire

Recommended Posts

(Spartan Games edit)


With so many sub-forums and threads, we're trying to give the Spartan Games Community a bit of a tidy-up. Let's try and keep to the official threads and see how we go.

 

 

Who are the Ottoman Empire?

 

“The Rus have violated our sacred lands and the Italians sail our waters with impunity. Inshallah, we will teach them all the error of their ways.”
Mehmed Pasha, Grand Vizer to his Imperial Highness Suleiman Mustafa I, to the French Ambassador, Constantinople 1870


Once thought to be a power in decline, the Ottoman Dominons have staged a remarkable recovery in their fortunes over the last century. Dominating the eastern end of the Mediterrenean, the Dominion occupies the crossroads of the Eurasian continent and as a result holds enormous influence on all overland trade between Europe and Orient. The Dominion’s central Asian territories also hold vast quantities of mineral oil – black gold whose significance is just becoming apparent to the other major powers. Long considered militarily backwards, the Dominion has recently undertaken a major overhaul and modernisation of its military forces under its dynamic new Sultan and his wise and experienced Grand Vizier. Nonetheless, the Dominion’s new engagement with foreign powers has created a degree of political tension between rival factions in the Imperial Court.

Ottoman and Egypt really have me intrigued, enough so to hold off to see them before starting a fleet, usually i play British in every game! Hope that all their ships and mobile airfields have big spires and minnerettes.

A couple of Zebec pictures. I hope the Frigates for The Ottomans fit the motif of extremely fast and maneuverable.

Their fortresses should be the most powerful of the game.

Maybe with some sort of Gatling canon technology.

I think the worst thing that Spartan could do would be to release models of ships that look like ships. Every faction bar CoA and EotBS seems to have that look sown up.

Dorvack.

Very nice rummaging.

Interesting submarine, wonder what happened to it?

Maybe they ate it :D ; I can´t help but to think of baklava rolls when looking at it, mmmmmmh ^_^ .

That´s the exact reason I dislike the initally released Prussian ships (Starter) the most.
