I have one for you for the Kebabs: begin construction on a grounded space station. We will figure out how to launch it to space.
What do you mean?

Like a station that can go into orbit AND be grounded?/Flying base?

Just a space station on the ground, for now. We will launch it to space later. But, a flying station with wheels would be cool, too, I guess.

Actually, this gives me an idea: let's "borrow" the Kiwi Launch Silo and launch our station in that thing.

Ran out of time today, but will work on it in the future

Xenforo. You're not the only one hating it.

Tell me when the station is ready, I'll handle the launching. Kiwi silo is retrofitted and ready for spacecraft launches.

Minus well since the H4wKNet Antenna revealed our space flagship, here it is:
TAC Flagship .png
(It is a 1/24(this is tiny compared to the real one) scale replica of it)
It has:
Railgun broadsides
Large Anti-fighter suites
Top and Bottom bridge sections with double-barreled turrets (replica couldn't match that)
Small Ship Hangars- Contains:
2 Small Mining ships
1 Small Constructor
1 Fleet Repair Unit
7 Compact Combat Fighters/Drones
Small Fighter Fabrication Facility

A very powerful Main Cannon mounted on the front (fails in atmosphere)- not equipped on the replica
Equipped with a basic cloaking generator
Basic short-ranged jump drive
On board gravity generator
Some missile turrets
*might* be capable of building things in space
Maneuvering thrusters
Powerful "Gigalord" flight engine
Light full-cover shield array
"Intimidating?"

Cons
Incapable of entering atmosphere- (Engines aren't built for atmospheres)
Very slow at turning
Old vessel, technology on it is outdated, and it has battle damage from a Deep Space Pirates attack when coming to the Off-World.
Has live crew aboard
Big- Easy target, also visible from several miles away without cloaking
Vessel name is missing
Can be "ganked" by enemies while off-guard
Aim of guns may be bad
There are larger ships out there that perform better for their size. This ship is old enough that a newer, smaller ship can be more powerful than it in every way.

It was confidential during the early stages of TAC to prevent trust issues.
A very powerful warship indeed, it unfortunately has no anti-ground weapons other than the "Base Bomb Accelerator" which was used to found TAC.

It *might* be a one of a kind vessel.

Current Action(s):
Plotting an attack mission to take down the Bandit Outpost - underway, need Artillery Techs
Need artillery?

TGAF has recently started production on a medium-size Mortar Artillery, perhaps it would be of some use to the TAC.
Notify TGAF of intentions regarding the possible sale of this item to the TAC in the future.

Enclosed is a file (not to be duplicated) of the Artillery in question:

TGAF abides by efficient scale standards, not absurd ones.

Besides, we can offer our techs at affordable prices, unlike your "1 in existience" Mega Mortar Madness
We can produce more, you know. Also, it's a reasonable price for the size of it considering the amount of mortars on it.

Heh.

Actually, it's more than 20X the price per mortar of mine

6000000 / 64 (countable/estimate-able mortars in-shot, correct me) = 93750 BB/mortar
50000/12 = 4166/mortar

93750/4166 = 22.5x more per mortar.

As you can clearly see, TGAF Mortar Artillery is quite price-effecient compared to Mega Mortar Madness.

Edit: Missed a few.
Actual amount of mortars is 70, but that only changes the final number by 2x.

Don't forget the Titan Truck Wheels and the Hawkeye Tank Cannon. Also, there's well over 40 GSO one block batteries in the middle of it and a load of healing and shield bubbles. Also, don't forget the solar panels on the side.

Fair enough

With your request in mind, would you be interested in a design contract with TGAF for a Hawkeye-cannon specific Artillery piece?
