Triremes, with the exception of one-off capital vessels like Tessakonteres, were the largest warships of the ancient world.
Like a whisper in the wind, the mere thought of a hundred mighty triremes surging forth with elite hoplites aboard has kept invaders away from Greek shores for centuries.
The triremes of the allied city-states fought so ferociously at Artemisium and Salamis that even the mightiest of god-kings turned away, forever giving up hope of conquering Greece.
The trireme was not just a war machine, it was a promise of hope, of salvation against overwhelming odds, as heroic crews rode upon the churning waters at up to 20 knots downwind to break the lines of enemy fleets ten times their number.
Their bravery and sacrifice means that you, today, may enjoy the knowledge, the culture and the spirit of Classical Antiquity, because without these ships, there would be no Greece, no dreams of art, science, and the wonder of diplomatic government.
It is not known how these quaint vessels from classical antiquity ended up on Neter, but when questioned about the madness of wasting robotic crew on such primitive implements as oars and catapults, the vessel’s owners would simply scream in reply, that this is Sparta and naysayers would be cast forth into the bottomless pit.
Madness, you say!?
– What direction to face the vehicle relative to the opponent (Head-On, Broadside, away, etc):
Head on because the Spartans wouldn’t have it any other way even if the sun is blotted out by a million Persian arrows.
– Spawn height: Water surface
– RP Cost: 352,863
– The Vehicles name: Trireme Polybolos
– Your name (If nessesary): Carmen

Okokok. I'm using Madwand's Aerial AI. I'll be posting there too so I can get advice on both ends. But I can't figure it out - I set all of my lua settings to the ones it listed under 'kamikaze' in the faq section. Am I stupid? KAMIKAZE.blueprint (Size: 81.8 KB / Downloads: 4)

Hello. After starting the AoTE campaign to try and beat it, I came to the realization that just about every tank in the SE is equipped with dozens of impenetrable invisible barriers and not armor which kinda goes against the name "Steel Empire". There isn't much steel being used at all. Anyway I was wondering […]

I've noticed that the updated tortuga model has a very clever set of ACB's programmed to move a plane platform. The ACB's are programmed to move named spinblocks and pistons. The only problem is that I can't find any information regarding changing the ID or the name of spin blocks and Pistons. Does someone know […]
Sooo, I'm curently toying with beltfed-based artillery, and checked how far I could go in terms of gauge while keeping a high, sustained rate of fire. So I reworked my Gascogne that I like so much and turned the artillery into beltfed-based thing. Result is... interesting. To fit a 500mm shell in a beltfed, there […]
Hi, I-ve looked everywhere, can't seem to find anything about it. I've been looking at the updated models and I've seen the Tortuga ship from the DWG has a very interesting platform on its stern that conducts a series of programmed moves. The Automated Control Blocks or ACB's are programed to activate a series of spin […]
