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

  • [v2.13 (devtest)] LWCs prioritized over AMCs for turret control January 22, 2018
    My ships use dual-purpose CIWS turrets with both LWCs and AMCs on the same construct. In previous updates, this worked well, as the turret would target vessels by default then switch to targeting missiles when missiles appeared. Currently, this isn't the case. If both vessels and missiles are present, only vessels are targeted, allowing missiles […]
  • What block is this? January 22, 2018
    I have found in many tutorials that there are cone-ish type things placed on and around ammo boxes... What are they and why are they there??? In the picture its the things on the boxes on the left.   Capture.PNG (Size: 235.32 KB / Downloads: 23)
  • [2.12] Laser Tranceivers don't work across multiple turrets January 21, 2018
    I am trying to make a laser turret with 360 degree aiming. I want to do this by using two turret blocks, the way you can with other weapons now. However, if I connect the first turret to a tranceiver on the main grid, that turret cannot transmit the same laser to any child grids. […]
  • Jacob's Folly Retrofit January 21, 2018
    A refitted version of the DWG easy Jacob's Folly. Changes: I changed 4 of the six low-gauge CRAMs to better, high-gauge CRAMs, and 2 of them to 70 RPM 142.85mm InHEFr APS. I removed the paddles and put 2 high-gauge CRAMs per side in their place. I put a new AI at the bow, and […]
  • Building a Type 22 Batch 3 January 21, 2018
    I thought I'd make this post to document my progress on designing an accurate as possible Type 22 frigate. I have been fairly interested in these ships due to my Dad serving in the RN on HMS Cornwall a Type 22 and because I think they're pretty cool.

  • [v2.13 (devtest)] Spinning wings generate lift January 21, 2018
    Wing lift does NOT depend on main construct's velocity. But it depends on the velocity of the construct that wings are on. So now wings on sub-on-subobject can work just like heliblades.   spinwing_showroom.blueprint (Size: 117.99 KB / Downloads: 1)

  • Laser Figher January 20, 2018
    I decided it would be fun to make a small microfighter one afternoon. It was. It became more fun when I decided to test it and discovered that it could singlehandedly kill anything in it's weight class and most things below 3000 volume, notably including Scarlet Dawn Wyverns. I now believe simple lasers should be […]
