~Heavy assault aircraft "Diamondbreaker"~

Diamondbreaker.png

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.
Weight: Heavy.
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"~

eBeetle.png

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.

Size: Medium.
Weight: Medium-light.
Speed: Fast.
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"~

Metal Mastodon.png

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.

Size: Large.
Weight: Heavy.
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"~

Tomboy.png

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 a monster truck bristling with Avalanche launchers and 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.

Size: Medium.
Weight: Medium.
Speed: Fairly fast.
Agility: Excellent.
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"~

The Table.png

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.

Size: Medium.
Speed: Medium.
Weight: Medium.
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"~

Scorpion.png

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.

Size: Medium.
Weight: Fairly light.
Speed: Fast.
Agility: Excellent.
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.

~High-speed nomadic fighter-harvester "Diamond Dust"~

View attachment 23123

If you want to live fast but also for a reasonably long time, Diamond Dust is the tech for you. It can speed across the plains and crawl up the steepest hills, snatching resources on the go to recharge its shields and earn some extra dosh. Four Hawkeye cruise missiles give it enough of a punch to blow up enemy techs from a safe distance, with a couple of plasma flamethrowers for a little extra punch up close. It can turn on the spot, too.

Size: Medium.
Weight: Medium.
Speed: Fast.
Agility: Excellent.
Armament: Four Hawkeye cruise missiles, two plasma flamethrowers.
Defences: High-density angled plumbite armour.
Special Abilities: Mobile resource collection, refinement, burning and selling.
Weaknesses: No noticeable ones.

A privateer named Phil made Diamond Dust for a bet. His rival Helga bet him a Megaton cannon that he couldn't build a motorbike with integrated resource processing tech, so Phil decided to stretch the definition of "motorbike" to its limit. Helga quite rightly pointed out that Diamond Dust had four wheels, so Phil blew up all her best techs and stole everything she owned. He hopped aboard the still-pristine Diamond Dust, put on his sunglasses and roared off into the sunset.

Helga vowed to rebuild her fleet from the ground up and wreak her revenge. She had nothing left but a Foreman GPR cab and three Venture T-brackets, but the fire inside her heart could never be quenched. She was going to do such a number on Phil he wouldn't even know what hit him.

TO BE CONTINUED...
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"~

Racing Catamaran.png

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.

Size: Medium.
Weight: Fairly light.
Speed: Fast.
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.

~High-powered hovering castle "Prima Victorio"~

Prima Victorio.png

Prima Victorio is one of the most powerful techs ever fielded by the GSO. With vast banks of weaponry and enough height to fire its missiles over hills, it is capable of delivering tremendous volleys in all directions. Its internal structure features hundreds of compartmentalised batteries, giving it massive energy reserves without much risk of a chain reaction. It can travel at a respectable speed over most forms of terrain, although sheer cliffs still present a challenge.

Prima Victorio was built to protect Shadow Moped, a GSO weapons development facility constructed on stilts in the deepest swamps of Erquendor Beta, which is a planet famed for its swamps. Shadow Moped's initial goal was to build a tech with legs. Operatives working for Hawkeye and Reticule Research, plus hundreds of pirates, were determined to get at the rumoured legs, so they sent in swarms of lightweight techs which could cope with the mud. The GSO's response was to build a massive hover tech, which turned out to be far more interesting and useful than whatever walking tank might have been under construction inside the base.

Size: Massive.
Weight: Exceedingly heavy.
Speed: Fairly fast.
Agility: Average in the hands of a good driver. A few light bursts of thrust can compensate for drifting; bear in mind that hover techs know how to strafe.
Armament: Hoo, boy. *takes a deep breath* About a hundred STUD lasers, sixty-odd ZK-74 machine guns, eighteen-odd Megaton cannons, twenty-odd missile launchers, three front-facing Bertha guns, one rear-facing Bertha gun, four Gigaton cannons, about thirty COIL lasers, some three-pound cannons, maybe a few eight-barrel mini-mortars, the little lasers on the front-mounted cabs, and the kitchen sink.
Defences: Plumbite plating on parts of the hull and around the hover plates.
Special Abilities: Can boost, although without much effect.
Weaknesses: Compared to a pyramid with, like, a hundred Megaton cannons, it doesn't do all that much damage. Is that really a "weakness", though, or just the price you have to pay for aesthetics?

~User-friendly hover racer "Red Dart"~

Red Dart.png

The Red Dart is Venture's answer to the new hover races. Fast, manoeuvreable, stable and precise, it can complete any course with seconds to spare. While the designers (who bathe in mermaids' tears) wanted to use only Venture blocks, they grudgingly agreed to add a Better Future hover computer. The front spoiler keeps it on the straight and narrow while boosting and the repair bubble can keep it going even if the spoilers fail catastrophically.

If you're having trouble getting to grips with hover races, the Red Dart could be the solution. Make use of strafing to keep it pointed towards the gates, use the up and down arrows to change the ride height, and let it rip. You almost certainly won't be consumed in a fiery explosion.

Size: Small.
Weight: Light.
Speed: Fast.
Agility: Brilliant.
Armament: None.
Defences: Sloped carbon fibre bumpers on most surfaces.
Special Abilities: Rocket boosters and automatic stabilisation.
Weaknesses: May flip over if boosters are used irresponsibly.

~Reliable antigravity racing tech "Gravity Schmavity"~

Gravity Schmavity.png

Gravity Schmavity was designed for people who struggle with Better Future's anti-gravity races. While it changes altitude a bit slowly, it can manage most courses with little difficulty thanks to its powerful stabilisation systems. A few weapons allow it to fend off opportunistic scavengers. And what's more, the snapshot is right here, completely free! Now you don't need to buy anything from-

"There he is! Get him!"

"We'll teach you to share unlicensed tech schematics, you beardy git. Eat laser!"

Eep! Um, I think I'd better go now, friends. Lots to do, you know how it is... 'Bye!

Size: Medium-small.
Weight: Light.
Speed: Fairly fast.
Agility: Excellent.
Armament: Two streamline lasers, one omnidirectional beam.
Defences: Just the gorgeous, pearly-white Better Future hull, sculpted by mermaids who bathe in the tears of tech designers. (And tech designers cry a lot sometimes, believe me.)
Special Abilities: Oh, I don't know, how about the ability to resist gravity? That "special" enough for you?
Weaknesses: It isn't really built for combat.
