Steel Pathbreaker

By ThunderPanzer

The Steel Pathbreaker is a very large literal flying battleship, built as a tank to break through enemy fortifications and fleets.
It’s armament consists of 2x 2m HEAP CRAM cannons on an unique rotary turret system mounted at the side of the hull instead on top of the deck, and a single 2m CRAM mortar to cover the blind spot of the main guns.
The secondary battery consists of 12x 178mm APS cannons and 4x 1225mm CRAM cannons.
This remarkable armament goes in pair with the ship’s toughness and durability, it can withstand the most powerful barrages of enemy fire for incredible amounts of time. For this reason, this unit is always the best equipped for the front line.
Being held by the largest zeppelin available, this beast, apart from being armed to the teeth and heavily protected, it can fly over 250m above the enemy and propel itself at 90km/h or 48.5 knots using it’s powerful propellers, wich also help with turning the craft. Since we couldn’t manage to get gears all the way up there, we instead installed dedicated experimental oil engines to actuate the props. The screws were replaced with a small propeller, connected to the main boilers, actuated via gears.

– Spawn direction: Broadside
– Spawn height: 250m
– RP cost: ~1.215.000 RP
– The vehicle’s name: Steel Pathbreaker
– My name: ThunderPanzer

  • Discarding Sabot Module June 17, 2018
    Idea is that you place a Discarder in the back of your shell which acts like a discarding sabot round would.
  • Various campaign vehicles modified to work under earthlike physics. June 17, 2018
    So I've been trying to build vehicles for FTD's Earth default settings of the game configuration lately, because those physics settings are harder to build for and more fun to play in than the Neter standards. (0.1 drag, 0.2 thrust from any component, 0.75 buoyancy to Neter's 1.25, and 2x damage.) Of course, to really […]
  • Crash when launching June 17, 2018
    Just updated windows to 10 and installed FTD but every time I press play through steam, it would open then says it crashed. Tried playing via the application itself but the same thing happens.   output_log.txt (Size: 22.48 KB / Downloads: 1)
  • Fix the Stupid Water Physics (Bouncing, mostly) June 16, 2018
    I think that some change a few months ago, not sure which update, made even well-balanced and well-made ships bounce. I don't mean going up a meter or 2 over the desired waterline. I mean 5-15 meters. I have an ironclad I made for the OW campaign, which bounces between -3m (underwater) and 7m (above […]
  • What is your favourite foe in From the Depths? June 16, 2018
    Though they are the simplest faction to beat, I am particular to the deepwater guards' designs. I used to love (and dread) the old kalmar in my noob days, and the newer airships are also very nice. Overall, I've had most fun designing counters to the plunderer, overcoming it by a small margin at first, […]

  • [Campaign Setup] Reinstate the early game assault waves? June 16, 2018
    I remember fondly when starting the campaign meant getting ready for the sinners luck and a riverhome to come knocking on your door within the next few in-game hours. It gave a fight to look out for, a neat challenge to construct good early game vessels, and a change to kickstart your warmachine by capturing […]
  • June week 2 update June 16, 2018
    As per last week's update progress is going well on the four main topics: 1) Work through the remaining "snags" very nearly complete with this one 2) Finish integrating the new water setup in FTD and customise it to suit the different planets Completed a first pass for Neter and now back in to do […]
  • [Battleship] HMS Saint-Bernadette June 15, 2018
    Description: After several trial-and-errors and failed concepts (and wasted time and effort), the Starsaber class dreadnought finally passed NORDOC Industries' strict requirements and is now slated for deployment on the planet Neter, with HMS Saint-Bernadette as the flagship of the company's expansion operations into Fishbone Island and High Lorham. NORDOC executives, once combat trials are […]
  • APS firing piece is not connecting. June 15, 2018
    Hey everyone. I stumbled on Aner-Dyfan APS blaster tutorial and decided to replicate his turret with a bit different autoloader placement. All went fair and well until a tried to place a firing piece. If i place it directly on the gauge increasers line that is in the middle of the turret its ok. But […]
