~Heavy assault aircraft "Diamondbreaker"~
Designed and built by Helga, the Diamondbreaker is one of the most powerful aircraft ever seen*. Its powerful engines contain dozens of fans, allowing it to overcome its natural inertia and fly at an impressive speed. Instead of massive wings, the Diamondbreaker makes use of vertical rotors to provide extra lift. Up to four pilots (but just Helga in practice) can fit inside the state-of-the-art conning tower, which unfortunately makes for an easy target. The Diamondbreaker's four front-facing MK-3 battleship cannons can blast through pretty much anything, with plenty of missiles on hand to follow up on anything too resilient or evasive to go up in flames. Downwards-facing Avalanche launchers allow for bombing runs. Getting the Diamondbreaker to take off is extremely challenging, requiring a large ramp completely free from trees or boulders, but it flies like a very expansive bird once you get it up. Expansive, and expensive. The Diamondbreaker is not ideal for a rookie prospector.
Size: Very large.
Ground Speed: Fast.
Ground Agility: Like a sleep-deprived bull in a china shop.
Air Speed: Very fast.
Acrobatics: Fairly good, albeit with some inertia.
Armament: Four (4) MK-3 battleship cannons, four (4) front-facing Avalanche launchers, eight (8) downwards-facing Avalanche launchers, ten (10) cruise missile launchers, four (4) GSO missile turrets, six (6) Rapid cannons, several small arms, maybe even more stuff I have forgotten about and cannot see in the snapshot.
Defences: Comprehensive shield and repair bubble coverage. Hull is covered in carbon fibre armour.
Special Abilities: None. Does it really need any, though?
Weaknesses: Wing-mounted shield projectors are relatively unprotected.
* In this particular canon.
~Gluten-free long-range scout vehicle "eBeetle"~
Architects of the future, the time has come for you to explore new horizons in comfort and style. Better Future is proud to present the tech that will rewrite our industry and bring the dawn of excellence to the galaxy. Stylish, elegant and truly powerful, the eBeetle (tm) is designed for the prospector of today. Its spinally-mounted laser invocation system delivers serious damage both in front and behind, contained within an elegant winged-egg carapace inspired by Mesopotamian (tm) paperweights. The air-conditioned frontal driving space has room for two architects of the future, and is complete with a 5.1 surround sound system and hydroponics bay for growing organic kale. Thanks to its eight swift, silent wheels which run on Better Future's Halo (tm) technology, the eBeetle (tm) can glide out of an enemy's reach while peppering it with laser bolts. The eBeetle's (tm) ventral Orb (tm) boosters can keep it speeding along for minutes at a time with little risk of capsizing. It comes with a lifetime guarantee, two spare wheels (one for each size) and a free woolly hat to wear to your favourite coffee shop. All of the above and more can be yours for just 1,200,076.81 block bucks, or 1,050, 307.21 block bucks if you own a Better Future license. Why wait? Become the herald of a bright new dawn today!
Due to technical issues, the boosters can only accept Better Future's ultra-smooth Digniflight (tm) fuel, available for 50,000 block bucks per litre from your local Better Future Commercial Space (tm). The eBeetle's (tm) systems will only accept genuine Better Future blocks purchased from licensed Better Future trading stations; installing any self-crafted blocks or blocks from lesser corporations will lock the eBeetle (tm) into safe mode. This is because we at Better Future want only the best for our family. The eBeetle's (tm) ergonomically-sculpted crystal-white hull is not designed for combat, driving through forests, dusty environments, muddy environments, cold environments or exposure to Friesian cattle, and any damage due to such situations is the responsibility of the end user. The eBeetle (tm) should not be packed into an SCU unit more than once per day. Using any repair bubble not produced by Better Future to repair the eBeetle (tm) will void the lifetime guarantee. Registering with any inferior corporation will void the lifetime guarantee and result in a severe spanking from Better Future's Brand Experience Paladins (tm). Using the eBeetle (tm) while not being cool enough (for example, without a well-kept beard or a nose ring) will result in execution.
Agility: Can turn well on the spot, but mediocrely while in motion. Rocket boost may also cause it to flip over.
Armament: Buncha' lasers, yo.
Defences: Integrated titanite-plumbite-celestite alloy hull, as smooth as butter and beautifully sloped.
Special Abilities: A powerful rocket boost!
Weaknesses: No shielding or repair bubbles. Poor weapon coverage on the sides.
Incidentally, I wrote this while in posession of a beard and a ponytail, while wearing a stripy shirt...
~Semi-unstoppable missile broadside truck "Metal Mastodon"~
With the physique of a brick, the durability of a brick and the swiftness of a JET-POWERED BRICK, the Metal Mastodon is one of Hawkeye's strongest techs. It fills an unusual niche in their fleet, having the size and staying power of a medium tank while being designed to fight groups of small, fast techs. The Metal Mastodon's bullet-spewing banks of guns and mortars can strip shields and inflict heavy damage, but its true potential comes in the form of eight Seeker missile pods on each flank. These launchers can strike all but the most evasive techs at close range. It is also possible to park the Mastodon beside a heavily-armoured enemy, let the guns and mortars rotate into position and unleash a withering barrage. It doesn't have quite enough punch to take on a shielded, cannon-toting tank, but it does its best.
The Metal Mastodon can circle enemies and travel at speed even on ice and rough terrain, although tumbling off a few hills too many will blunt its combat potential. Its six internal fans give it a high cruising speed while a set of booster engines allow it to tear across the plains. It can survive crashing through a few trees as well, thanks to its impressive battery capacity and robust components.
Now, you may be wondering who designed the Metal Mastodon, and indeed what she likes to bathe in. Spiced milk? Tomato soup? Harpies' tears? Sphinx sweat? Nope, she bathes in good old-fashioned water, preferably surrounded by scented candles. As to the Mastodon, she just drew the prototype on a napkin, leaving it up to Hawkeye's engineering department to actually make one.
Speed: Fairly fast.
Agility: Decent enough.
Armament: Sixteen side-facing Seeker missile pods, four auto-cannons, ten small mortars, small arms for days.
Defences: Heavy-duty titanite hull, aggregated carbon nano-rod armour over sensitive areas.
Special Abilities: p o w e r f u l r o c k e t b o o s t
Weaknesses: Relatively low burst damage.
Also, what do you mean I forgot to add the eBeetle's stats? I honestly have no idea what you're talking about...
~Top-quality light brawler "Tomboy"~
Fast, agile, powerful and easy to use, the Tomboy is an excellent choice both for combat and exploration. It can drive at speed over rough terrain thanks to its internally-mounted fans and powerful wheels, and boasts two Venture boosters for that little extra velocity. A full covering of weapons and armour makes it nigh-impossible to catch the Tomboy unawares; although its armament isn't the strongest, it can blast away at any angle and keep up with fast-moving targets. Its batteries can last through a few fights as long as the pilot doesn't sit through too many barrages. Where the Tomboy really shines, however, is in assassination. It can easily charge up alongside a larger, more powerful tech and blast away at its wheels, too near for the Bertha cannons and cruise missiles to hit, and use its three front-mounted plasma flamethrowers to tear through the enemy's shields. With the Tomboy's six-wheel steering system, keeping the flamethrowers pointed in the right direction is a cinch.
The Tomboy was built by a GeoCorp miner to protect the salt flats where he worked, which were constantly being raided by pirates who could outrun slow, heavy GeoCorp techs. The miner pretended to be one of the pirates, drove up alongside monster truck bristling with Avalanche burned it to a crisp. The remaining pirates managed to wear down the Tomboy's shields after a few losses, so the miner fled back into the salt flats. His comrades were waiting with a massive harvester, laden with drills and all their spare boosters. The ensuing battle was far from pretty; only one pirate managed to escape, and that was because she had a flying tank. The Tomboy was ground to splinters along with the pirates, though, and it took the miner months to find a replacement Crossfire rifle.
Speed: Fairly fast.
Armament: Ten STUD lasers, four Contact shotguns, three plasma flamethrowers, seven three-pound cannons, ten Hailfire rifles, one Crossfire rifle.
Defences: Patches of sloped plumbite plating.
Special Abilities: ~A powerful rocket boost.~
Weaknesses: Batteries and fuel tank are not that well-hidden. Flamethrowers struggle to aim downwards.
~Small, high-capacity harvester "The Table"~
Sturdy and reliable, The Table is a solid choice for prospectors who like to keep it real. Its weapons are designed for broadsides and rapidly clearing forests, while one plasma cutter is enough to deal with most rocks. It can also handle steep hills without too much trouble.
Agility: Great turning and decent handling.
Armament: Fourteen Hailfire rifles, eight ZK-47 machine guns, four STUD lasers, one angled plasma cutter.
Defences: A couple of ploughs, plus industrial-grade shock plating on the rear.
Special Abilities: Nada.
Weaknesses: Low battery capacity.
~High-speed assasination craft "Scorpion"~
The Scorpion was built for one purpose: to drive up alongside the enemy from any direction and unleash its rotary plasma cutter. Its wheels were chosen for maximum speed and manoeuvreability, allowing the Scorpion to run rings around slow and cumbersome enemies. It can't take much punishment, but it can inflict ruinous damage without much suffering. A little collector on the back allows the pilot to clean up any forests destroyed during battle, or may be removed to save weight.
Weight: Fairly light.
Armament: One articulated plasma cutter, four STUD lasers, four GSO compat shotguns, two side-mounted mortars.
Defences: Carbon fibre bodywork.
Special Abilities: None.
Weaknesses: Not much good at range.
1) That's feasible without the extra wheels right?
2) With the new gyros could you rebuild this "better"?
3) Why is the sky blue 1/3 of the day instead of 1/2?
Depending on what kind of bike wheels are used, it would of course be feasible. And yes, the new gyros could help out as well. As to the sky, though, I have no idea what you're talking about.
~High-speed racer "Racing Catamaran"~
The Racing Catamaran is designed to drive at a consistent speed, glide smoothly around corners and launch itself over ramps and hills. Twenty small wheels keep it stable and allow it to steer while six adjustment hovers provide enough thrust to move it along at over ninety miles per hour. It can take a few knocks thanks to its repair bubble, but extra cabs are provided in case of repeated head-on collisions. It is not recommended for combat. You could strap some Megaton cannons to the top, but it won't last long.
Weight: Fairly light.
Agility: Pretty good.
Armament: Just the machine guns built into the cabs.
Defences: None, really.
Special Abilities: None.
Weaknesses: All the weaknesses.
Very nice Techs, and the effort put on their specifications is awesome.
I was wondering, for the "Liberator" Venture Tank, do you think you could flip some blocks to turn them to the blue side in order to make it look more "American"?
Thanks for share your stuff though!
The thing is, the Liberator wasn't actually meant to be American. It just sort of ended up with that aesthetic. Flipping the blocks would definitely be possible, though; go ahead and try that if you want.
Probably I'll do it, well I think now I remember why it sounded so "American" for me, I believe its because of the monster truck from GTA V that also uses that name...lol.
