What inspires your games?
>>76062636lmao star wars fans have small dicks and smaller vaginas
>>76062645then they're perfect for each other
>>76062654I never seen an Armada game in the wild, but pretty of X-wing.Don't know why too.I'm really exited with the CIS release, but man they have nerfed the Muni or something? Those numbers for the forwards batteries don't seem right.
Is it a good idea to buy more than 1-2 boxes of the Separatist Specialist pack for Legion? I'll definitely buy 1 for the T-Series commander but I don't know if I want to have more than 2 sets of whatever's in that pack.
>>76062690Seems like it, I honestly don't get it, the signature caracteristic of Munificient are:>Having a ton of sensor and a big communication array to run a private McMilitary holonet>Having a Big Dick double turbo who can only shoot forward but is super powerfullAnd if you want to push it>Okay forward armor with the bombed shell, shit paper thing armor everywhere else to compensate for good shield
>>76062701for casual play, 1 or 2 will be finespecialists packs are how they make money, since they know competitive players will buy them for a single minibut you rarely need 1 tactical droid for every squad at casual level the extra minis, if you dont intend to use them, you can try and barter for something or failing that, you can practice painting on them
Remember the fallen
>>76062774speaking of the extra minis, have FFG told us what they are and what they do? hoping for a repair droid to repair the AAT.
>>76062734Yeah, seems the team isn't into it or something.I fear for the Recusant and Providence lad, they will fuck it up, I feel i.
>>76062787>PK-series worker droidprobably this guythe other is a medical droid and a recon droid we still dont know the statlines of any of them except the tactical droid, though
>>76062818Hang on, I just started learning about Armada and I'm quite interested in CIS. Are their ships not very good? Should I just pick another faction? which of the factions are the most easiest to use?
>>76062831>medical droidThat's weird, B1s and B2s doesn't need medical droids. And if they're for the commanders and operatives are they going to activate separately?Curious to see how they will work.
>>76062839For what I know, they didn't even launch it lad.
>>76062780Did they forget about Kuiil or something?
>>76062868the way medical droids currently work is to move X wounds from the target to the droid, or gain X wounds to return a lost mini back to the squadtheir main purpose would logically be for their unfortunately organic commanders
>>76062950I was thinking that. Poor guy can't catch a break.
So if injecting someone with blood that has midichlorians in it causes "catastrophic results", do you think there was ever an incident in a hospital where someone with midichlorians donated their blood to another person which caused their body to rupture or mutate?
>>76062994so that means they will activate separately instead of being a mini attached to the commander right?
>>76063061Grievous seems to do just fine from his blood transfusion.
>>76063087yeah, this means that dooku will need to approach a B1 squad to borrow their medical droid as opposed to having his ownthe B1 squad also spends an action to do soits a weird rules interation, but it checks out
>>76063095I'm pretty sure that's EU only
>>76063179Anon, I hate to break it to you...but he exists in mouse canon and real canon. And he got blood transfusions and organ stuff from somewhere to keep himself alive.
>>76063061The Child more than likely has a very high concentration of midichlorians, and it's a member of Yoda's species that was born the same year as Anakin, which could mean something. Point is an "m-count" like that could potentially fuck someone up. And in the old EU I think midichlorians were detected in standard blood tests so doctors would know that sort of thing, not sure how it is in new canon.
>>76062780That's a PR move for Holowan
>>76063239Is anyone even left alive working for Holowan after IG-88 was through with them?
>>76063239I could see that: the monument springs up overnight, everyone thinks it's dedicated to the local hero, but in reality it's less than subtle advertising to the droid builder.
>>76062645So, Star Wars fans are Asians?
>>76063265Some are. Just don't tell the ones in china their are black people in the franchise. Because mouse does a good job photoshopping them out of the posters.
>>76063103I guess Grievous will be near at least 1 B1 unit at all times anyway so I guess that's fine even though it's a little clunky.
>>76063210Yes but Grevious' origin story was different due to Clone Wars where his cybernetics were intentional rather than something he truly needed for life support.
>>76063352the reason you cant take a medical droid as its own unit is to prevent you from padding out your activations with cheap single units who have a ton of utilitysee: R2
The Mandalorian season two soundtrack for chapters 9-12 is out, thoughts?https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_nk1cACYCWskEf8LlHITvCA9gMUaBskQ-YMy favorite track is "Ship O Hoj, Mandalorians!", love that accordian music.
>>76063402He still crashed in the shuttle, and the whole "improved over time" was some bs that was spun as some propaganda to make him sound like he wasn't a stooge for dooku.
>>76063428I wanted to say "well if Rebels and GAR can have R2 why can't we have a medical droid to activate separately?" but I do agree that they shouldn't do the same mistake twice.
>>76063402Isn't the "intentional" part just something Grievous say to safe face? or is that just my headcanon?
>>76062636>What inspires your games?Insert coomer, harem fantasy that's mostly inspired by Golden Age of the Solar Clippers and a little bit of Space Viking... except I appear as an incidental side character (Rival) with a decent Piloting (Space) rating and a couple of ranks in the Daring Aviator talent from Genesys.
Is there an introduction article to the 4 factions in Armada? what are the strengths and weaknesses of each factions?
>>76063061The procedure is probably a little more involved than simply injecting the child's blood into a test subject.
>>76063210He didn't get a blood transfusion in disney canon, and baby yoda doesn't exist in legends, so comparing EU Grievous to the plot of the Mandalorian is pointless.
>>76064042Maybe it was supposed to be that simple but Dr. Pershing was feeling kinky
So what other EU stuff do you want to see appearing in The Mandalorian?
>>76064412Ancient jedi armor.
>those huge ballsits so goofy looking kek
>>76064734Cute! Whast ship is that? We need more mid level ships desu, specially for the RPG.
>>76064787Looks like the the Bayonet class corvette, or atleast what EaW mods use as the basis for it.
God I just got pissed off at a fanboy ladslike legit fucking PISSED and I dont know why
>>76064476Isn't Ahsoka's Rebels outfit ancient Jedi armor of some kind? It has the writing on it I think.
>>76064896I mean I wish there was but its the fact thatA. people think that wayB. theres a lot of them so you get dogpiled whenever you try to argue against them
>>76064412unironically Yuuzhan Vong
>>76064848What did he say?
>>76064942I said that filoni was overrated and they said "if you look in the dictionary for the word "wrong" this comment comes up" and for some reason i got fucking pissed and made a massive comment telling him hes a fanboy
I see the thread got hijacked by /tv/ again.
>>76064986I would have just replied with "In the same dictionary it has your image under idiot".
>>76064928No. Fuck no. Not the vongs.
>>76064856Why did they make her so ugly bros?
>>76065033it's the only thing that happens anymorethere's not enough new content/games aren't popular enough to sustain a general 24/7 so it creates a cycle:1. tabletop discussion slows down2. rather than let the thread die, sustain it with off-topic discussion and shitposting3. this drowns out tabletop discussion and drives posters away4. rinse, repeat
>>76065033>>76065115>A thread for discussing the 'Star Wars' franchiseThread nannies GTFO
>>76065136>/tg/ - Traditional Gamesif it's off-topic for the board, it's off-topic for the thread
>>76065164seems we're not allowed to discuss the 40k lore here anymore
>>76064886>>76063777im afraid armada was always the smallest of the war games, and war games have less popular appeal compared to RPGsi only play occasionally, so i cant give too much advice that isnt years out of date http://cannotgetyourshipout.blogspot.com/p/welcomewhere-to-start.html?m=1this and steel strategy might be more informative
>>76063061>>76063095>>76063179>>76063218>>76063210Anons I don't even know where to begin with why injecting another creatures blood into you is a terrible, terrible, terrible idea, let alone an entire other alien racehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenotransfusionthe tl;dr is that it SOMETIMES works, and the few documented attempts on humans are at best extraordinarily questionable. But it MAY work with pigs, which isn't surprising since we can use their insulin and some other pig compounds.Another alien? forget it. Most likely the mutations are 1 part "incompatible" and 1 part "midichlorians are crazy and do crazy shit when we try to centrifuge them to concentrate them into a super force blood pellet"
>>7606528240k gen unironically mostly talks about the games though because they have a never-ending drip feed of content for the tabletop, so you get tons of anons showing their new armies, talking points, showing their wip paints. Lore questions are basically a side dish in comparison.
Which would be better >Semi passive Dark Trooper treating a overtly aggressive Death Trooper like a chihuahua Or >Overprotective Death Trooper bossing around a Semi aggressive Dark Trooper
>>76065332They'd probably get better results using human or near-human force sensitive blood assuming the volunteers were human.
What keeps the Empire/First Order from fitting stormtroopers with augmentations? Something to dehumanize them and maybe weaken their link to the force as making faster, quicker reflexes and a loyalty implant for good measure
>>76065487It's just not cost-effective enough to be worth it. It's only really worth it for small runs of augmented commandos, such as the Death Troopers, as opposed to trying to make entire stormtrooper legions of cyborgs that would just go down in a hail of blasterfire as easily as a normal stormtrooper
>>76064476>Foolish Crado,>speak those words are you have already lost!wut? is that "are" supposed to be "and?"
>>76065548I guess.We can't expect poor comic writers to be able to hire a proof reader.
>>76065467Yeah but the Empire is probably just using what they got on hand. When you get that pure a sample of Vitamin M, you use it for your experiments
>>76065538Specially since random Joe turns out to be force sensitive and manages to eagle eye your troops while they seemingly to duck and cover and the right times
>>76065467>>76065590I mean presumably they aren't just literally injecting Yeed's blood. There's probably some processing involved. Isolating the midi-chlorians, or filtering out the incompatible stuff, or something like that.
I love Palpatine so much, he's such a great villain.
For me its Visas
>>76065590Ahsoka might be of more use to them in that case seeing as Togruta are mammalian iirc. Yoda's species seem to amphibian, Lucas described them as frogs anyway.
>>76065660I would think but i imagine there's only so much you can filter out. Then again, Pershing seems to be a decently upstanding imperial scientist so who knows. He does that weird "care about the well being of the subject instead of just pure convenience and practicality" thing you rarely see in scifi scientists
>>76065075Because Rebels had shit art style
>>76065441Overprotective deathtrooper (female) cradling a shy Scout Trooper (male)
>>76065814so did TCW but we don't spend every single thread bitching about it
>>76062636> What inspires your games?Honestly, the cool thing about star wars is that you can run practically any kind of story in it. I like to draw a lot on history and high fantasy, but I've run everything from an Alpha Protocol ripoff to (very briefly) the hunt for red october in star wars land, and everything inbetween. Still thinking about running a Conan inspired campaign in the earliest days of the jedi-sith conflict. Maybe starring a cast of barbarians in the unknown regions. I've even run a Napoleonic ripoff where the Monarchies of europe basicly became Alderaan, Chandrila, Anaxes, etc, up against a revolutionary government taking control of Coruscant. Quite fun.
>>76065939>so did TCWExcept it didn't.
>>76065993it tried to ape Genndywars style and failed spectacularly because that style doesnt work in CGI, if you try to deny this you're fucking delusional
>>76062839>>76062899the new extensions (Galactic Republic and Separatists starter packs) are expected for early December from what I know. There will also be squadrons packs for each faction, with 8 squadrons of 4 different types (2 per fighter type, similarly to what was available for Empire/Rebellion). It would not be a surprise that the ships that are available in the starter packs will be available as single extesions later, with other upgrades. This is what FFG did when they launched the game. Anyway, Armada is quite an interesting, although complicated at first, game. It has a lot of depth and trying to find a good list with elements that complement each other is quite fun. According to your preferred way of playing, the lists can also strongly differ whether you enjoy two big ships with limited maneuverability and big guns, or multiple small ships that swoosh around the map, or a mix of both approach. Squadrons also can offer multiple strategic approaches, whether you're limiting yourself to a few TIE fighters to block the enemy wings, or if you build a squadron-heavy list to attack ships.
>>76065993Clone Wars was Gerry Anderson meets anime while taking cues from Genndy's designs in the early days while Rebels was McQuarrie meets Kenner, I preferred the former but Filoni's baseline style that he uses for sketching does have an anime vibe to it imo.
>>76066046Cool, I'm interested in the CIS, what is they deal for what you have seen? And are the Munis than have been stated "anemic" in the frontal arc as it seems?
>>76066279Uh, are those mandalore corvettes? From where are they? They look cool anon.
>>76066279they look a bit too slick for star wars imo, needs abit more greebles. Maybe a some side turrets that are more pronounced or a dish somewhere
>>76062690In answer to the post you're quoting Armada was way more expensive.
>>76066443That could be what killed in my country. Plus Ties and Xwing are a lote more easy on the eyes I guess.
>>76066479Yea i regret not playing Armada but the starter box set was very expensive and since no one bought that there was no other ships or maybe one or two token ones among the whole X wing line on the shelves. Credit to FFG X Wings starter box was imo the best starter ever. Cheap and a complete playable boardgame right out of the box. 2 (certainly 3) and you had enough for a great tabletop game with luxurious amount of everything for both players.
>>76066443How much do you need for a "full" army in Armada? 2 Core Sets + 1-2 extra ships?How many points do we get in the new core sets for Republic and CIS?What's the points needed for the smallest game(like Skirmish in Legion)?
>>76066279Is that a Mando or Chiss ship?Is that from empire at war remake mod?She's a beauty.
>>76063250It just killed one research and development lab, the company is still solvent and has other assets and employees. Holowan is the typical video game tech-crop that will lose entire facilities to ill-advised experiments or rogue prototypes and hire some off-the-books mercs to clean things up and deal with the problem before their financiers at the IGBC start asking any questions. They would have happily hired IG-88 to clean up after itself as long as it meant they could get back to work.
>>76066338>>76066401>>76066563Supposed to be a Star Warsified Normandy. Looks a bit Imperial-ish to me.
>>76066401Nubian designs are slick as fuck, the galaxy is very big bruh.
>>76065823Based and musclegirl pilled
>>76066966Yeah, the loss of one lab is nothing compared to the vast assets the IGBC can throw around, even after it was partially nationalized. IIRC, they escaped the fate of most of their CIS collaborators
>>76064986That seems like a retarded thing to get upset over. Do you have the autism?That said you should have responded with "I'm going to fuck your asshole bloody" and then sodomized him with the replica lightsaber you no doubt carry around with you at all times because you're a fucking faggot.
>>76067086>TFW no big titty mando/ Death Trooper GF
>>76066998Huh.it reminded me more of some Imp ships from LOGH.
>>76067089Them and Arakyd, who actually got the rest of the Techno Union's assets, excluding some firms like Holowan since it was under the IGBC, when they were all rolled into one consolidated droid manufacturing company and partially nationalized as well. Getting all the Baktoid designs and R&D, and all the other production assets, is what made Arakyd suddenly go from a company that made sensor equipment and scouting/spy probes to a company that makes every kind of droid you can think of.
Someone asked me to share my stuff for the Myto and Chopani sectors, so here it is. I also have a doc on some of the factions and gangs, but that isn't quite done yet.
>>76067029The nubians we see are literally ultra high end luxury ships or part of a royal envoy, they probably shouldnt be representative of a warship like the star wars normandy
>>76065990>Napoleonic ripoffIs there a Corellian General who spends most of his time BTFO-ing Coruscanti armies by using the advanced tactic of hiding behind a hill?I unfortunately do not have a pic of Sir Arthur Wellesley on my PC.
>>76067358I think his point is that sleek ship aren't impossible in Star Wars. And the frigatte anon posted is far to be as sleek as a Naboo ship, it's just not a Gribblecore (something that often get overdone anyway).
>>76066279>slanted side mounted turretsMy disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined. The Silhouette is pretty cool though.
>>76067409>"Constantly">Implying Wellesley got anything on NapoopanAnon the man spent the rest of his day contemplating a painting of the man for hours, either he was gay, or he was wondering how he would have done if Waterloo wasn't the culmination of litteraly all of Europe ganging up on one madlad.
>>76067358>>76066998SW Normandy is probably the Raider.
>>76067494His record from the Peninsular Campaign speaks for itself.
I admit its a bad angle meant to obscure them, but I see a whole lot of Cylon centurion by way of death trooper and KX-security droid. Its hard to say what lore they'd assign to such a design, but visually it seems to fall between 2 and 3.
>>76067561I know the NR Corvus was probably meant to be a one-off custom ship, but I think raiders could be a pretty good fit for the New Republic.
>>76067562Again being a brillant leader in the gang up on a army exhausted from fighting all of Europe hardly make him the equal of a man who made all of Europe quake in it's boot for a decade
>>76067641>NR Corvus as the Cerberus SR2 Normandy equivalentit works
>>76067605They kind of look like they're based on K2SO or Kylo Ren concept art, or something I've seen in one of the art books for the Disney Star Wars films but it I can't place it.
>>76062636>Circled are the ones i used to own. Probably worth a fortune now, shame i got rid of them
>>76067861>>76062636What's the thing between the Lambda and the TIE in the back?
>>76067861the collectorfags that pay a fortune for old toys only want shit in-box in mint condition unless it's ridiculously rare, so you're outta luck if you actually treated your toys like toys
>>76065441This is nice

I was initially annoyed when I saw this webm out of context but after watching the episode I'm ok with it because it was established that diving over that cliff in a speeder was a dangerous prospect in the first place
>>76067409HAH, I didn't do it one for one like that, it was more like about how this era went from having small "professional" armies and starfleet to the "Revolutionary" government spamming mass produced conscription armies that swarmed the stars with a coinciding surge in the production of capital ships and transport vessels. It's quite possible I was trying to do my own ripoff on the starforge concept, it was around those years. I believe I had the players/armies mostly use single shot blaster "rifles" or slugthrowers when going into mass combat. Officers had lightfoils, honestly it was really fun and over the top. I believe the Napoleon standin was vaguely Revanistic in the sense of being a rejected jedi youngling who was rejected for further training for having a dark and vague future, all that classic jedi council nonsense.Sadly the campaign didn't end up being completed but I remember it being a good time. I also had a random encounter table where you could run into Space moby dick if you went off the main hyperlanes, which was basicly one of those sith alchemical monsters (space dragons?) that are designed to end up ships in space. Good times.
>>76068398eat up ships in space*Sheesh, my grammar is way off today.
>>76067086musclegirls can be shy too
>>76067834yeah, that's definitely present, but theres something about the scale, and the way the chestplate and head are set up, that really makes me think of cylons.
>>76067834Isn't it just the dark trooper concept from rebels or TCW? I definitely feel like i've seen a CGI cartoon version that looks like that
>>76068378>established that diving over that cliff in a speeder was a dangerous prospectDoes that really need to be established though?
>>76068093>1Not a clue, doubt its canon
>>76068539I am 100% in favour I am forever saddened by the lack of works featuring shy Mandalorian women who buy a househusband slave
>>76068782>doubt its canonYet.
>>76068539>Death Trooper lecturing his Dark Trooper change in their risky and dangerous tactic of jamming a rebel tank with a Wookiee
>>76062690Two battleship grade on the front of a cruiser just isn't as much firepower as people think
>>76066279Looks like somebody tried to mass effect-ify a halo ship
>>76063218>and it's a member of Yoda's species that was born the same year as AnakinAre they gonna make Babby Yoda the real chosen one and Anakin was just Palpatine’s homebrew abomination?
>>76069387Didn't the Vader comic imply that? That Anakin was the Force antichrist?
>>76069387Vader was the chosen one though. He killed all the Jedi but two and there were two Sith. It's just not the sort of balance the Jedi had in mind.
>>76068318Nice, Although I don’t think anyone would mind if it was the other way around either
>>76069528cute but balancing the force=/=balancing the force users
Does anyone else want to be repeatedly punched in the face by Gina?
>>76066966There’s a new comic where they visit the lab and it’s still destroyed
>>76069528Man I didn't hear this bullshit since 2010
>>76069486Why would you hurt yourself by letting mouse comics retcon film material ?
Did FFG ever stat up Beskar armour? Feels like it could be a great heist opportunity, a suit of Beskar! >>76069624Crush my head between her thighs.
>Alright Who are your characters?>I made a bounty hunter from the outer rim, Call me Zadok "Twin-tail" the Twi'lek>I made a Wookie Pilot, call me 'Gruff'"Im Jeff, Jeff Blue Jeans of the Alliance"Would you allow it, /swg/?
>>76069624that must have been early in her career before she got stocky as a girl can be reasonably be>>76068707well as a WEG person myself I know there are tons of speeders who have a flight ceiling of like, 10-50m, so establishing that they can be damaged from big jumps instead of gracefully glide down to a more reasonable level is nice imo>>76068378It was definitely a balsy move to yeet yourselves off a cliff life that. Does make you wonder how they NORMALLY get down. Probably an elevator, or something else, but maybe that was too slow. Idk.>>76067861if it was out of the box it ain't worth much anon, just how it be.>>76067229>Arakyd>For all your post-clone war EVIL DROID needs>We sell cylons and T-800 terminators stock>>76065664In an era of trying to deconstruct all villains into shades-of-grey characters who are merely misunderstood or driven to extremes by a society Palpatine really does stand out as being purely evil for no other real reason than its purely a means to power, and he desires that power not for some hollow "ends justify the means" purpose, nor some complex or ethereal purpose that pleases a God or pantheon. He just wants to be #1, and being evil is a quick and dirty way to do it. And he'll kill anyone that gets in his way and feed off the suffering and pain because he's evil. Yeah killing the Jedi is all well and good and in accordance to the Sith Plan, but Palps strikes me as the type where his infinite ambition would carry on even if he hadn't met Plageus>I wonder what Darth Yoda-Sidious vs Grand Master Sheev would have looked like though
>>76069778Boba Fett's armor is in Gadgets and Gear.
So out of X-Wing and Armada which one is a more safe investment? I currently play Legion and want to branch out to either X-Wing or Armada. Tried watching battle reports of both and X-Wing seems kinda slow where nothing happens in the first 2 turns. Is this really the case?Which of the 2 would you guys recommend?
>>76069952It all depends on your local scene. X-Wing in general is far more popular though.
>>76069778>>76069892"Mandalorian Armor" is in No Disintegrations
>>76069761I fucking want Cara to manhandle me like a E-11
>>76069975Currently no one in my area plays either of them. Me and a group of my friends want to start either of those 2.
>>76070478>turrets are mounted parralel to the direction of travelFUCKING FINALLY ANSEL
>>76069778I'd stat it as Mandalorian armor with the cortosis mod,which puts it at 16k minimum given it's rarity 8 and restricted status. Plus Din has other mods installed
>>76070607Cortosis just make it immune to breach no ? It dosn't actually improve the soak value ?
>>76070692It doesn't, no. Only way to improve the soak of a piece of armor is Superior. Which, to be fair, Mando's armor probably has.
>>76070692Cortosis makes you immune to pierce and breach, which effectively adds soak against most heavier attacks. 1 defense and 2 soak is pretty high armor value, tying heavy armor and generally only surpassed by the power armors. You could increase the soak again through the superior mod, or maybe explain it through Din having the Armor Master series of talents, given the high likelyhood he's a gadgeteer.Or you could craft a stupid powerful set of custom armor, but that's a whole can of worms I won't get into.
>>76070906>The biggest crime is that all of this didn't happen to me.
>>76069952X-wing be far my dude, armada is barely there as a wargame. And I prefer fleet battles than dog fights.
>>76069952First turn(s) are usually spent trying to get a superior engagement to the enemy. There is a strategy to it.
>>76070478But its cute. What's there to puke about? A comfy and Pure waifu it is.
>>76070945Jesus her thighs are broader than that man's shoulders.
>>76071032He really could've done a better job with the mounting of the aft wing turret, it just sticks out of the hull too much.
>>76070890That make me thing, how do that even work with droids anyway ? Do you just roleplay it as the droid improving his armor plate and the mods as him adding/improving things in his body ? I know the book already recomand to do that for some items (like for exemple buying a graple beying simply the droid adding on inside one of his arms or something) so dosn't that tend to "stack".But then Droids have their own weakness to compensate, so I guess it's all fair, after all Ion damage really fuck them up.
>>76070478>>76070590>turret barrels aren't just pointing down at the noseBaby steps Ansel>>76070692Cortosis doesn't do anything other than make it where things that normally ignore armor (say, a lightsaber) NOT ignore the armor. Effectively yes it adds soak against something like a lightsaber, but it doesn't make you more blaster proof than you were pre-Cortosis mod with the same armor. it does make you more saber proof though.>>76070798One of my players is a bounty hunter and every second he wants new gadgets and it'll someday get to the point where I add it up and go "you're carrying 10 kilos of security spikes and 4 pairs of electrobinoculars, are you sure you want that tactical security blanket" and the answer will be "yes"
>>76062636Is there anywhere to find the non-SAGA wotc sw books?
>>76071205>Baby steps AnselHe really needs to design hulls based on functionality rather than whatever shape he thinks would look cool, because all the weapon emplacements look like they're just bolted on after the fact rather than the ship being designed with its weapons in mind.
>>76070906Is this fake? This really seems like the kind of thing the sjw mob would really plaster everywhere right now.

>>76071385I've never been able to find anything but saga books, I guess I'll keep lookin
>>76071394>>76071412Those not familiar with the US media or justice system, both definitely happen and both barely get a blip except from people who care. Sure, it raised the "possible bs" factor, but still.
>>76071463They're generally classified differently, give me a second I'll poke around.
>>76071509not even the worst US media outlet would write "god I wish that were me" in an article about sexual assault
>>76071553I found where its supposed to be but the mega is timing out
>>76071563>>76071509>>76071412It would really only happen if there was one particularly irate intern who snuck it in last minute, then it'd get pulled down and they'd be kicked out so fast the exit revolving door could be a turbine for a hydroelectric dam
>>76071563Weekly World News might, assuming that satirical tabloid still exists
>>76071445You'd totally do the interesting shape, but really how the turrets "layer" would be the important thing. Like, putting 1 turret DIRECTLY in front of the other would be dumb for instance, unless one is so much larger than the other that it clears the other. Which tbf was not uncommon in old world war era prototype designs. But if you see real war ships, usually the cannons are deliberately staggered in such a way that they really can't shoot each other.So start with the shape, then move from there
>>76071445A better way of putting it is that he needs to keep the external components of his ships in mind when he's designing the basic hull shape, because otherwise it ends up with the usual Sponging where his ships have weaponry in odd places mounted at wierd angles because he clearly didn't consider where an how they would be mounting when drafting the initial shape of the design itself. It's why his weapon emplacements never really make much sense, he just makes the base silhouette and adds guns to it rather than designing the initial silhouette with those guns in mind.
>>76071628Back in high school, my friends and I convinced the librarian to get a subscription of WWN. I was told that they canceled it after we graduated.
>>76071697>>76071730I see thanks bros.
>>76071596I didn't find it. There used to be everything on there, but considering how assblasted a certain anon gets any time non saga gets brought up, it's interesting that only saga is the only one left.I would try asking on the PDF thread, they're pretty decent people most of the time.
>>76071149>Do you just roleplay it as the droid improving his armor plate and the mods as him adding/improving things in his body ?I would do that, and maybe have particularly well armored droids be treated with some suspicion or be out of place in some settings, which might make for an interesting roleplaying opportunity.
>>76070478this one is good though
>>76071814Thanks for trying. D20 revised is the best version of the rpg imo, for all its shortcomings. I'm biased towards art and book design being most important though
>>76071854No worries anon. Just remember to be polite in there. They're decent folk, but remember that courtesy goes a long way.
>>76071853>the dishIt's just begging for jam, especially raspberry
>>76071825Yeah, that seem obvious, a droid with a high-grade armor full of mods would have a hard time hiding it, even with his already mechanical body and would raise suspicion, or at least make people cautious, same as a guy walking around in heavy combat armor.Beside, any droid who use such gear is probably already a military model, who probably tingle people the wrong way in most place, especially since they tend to have a spoopy look.>Yfw your some Cantina bartender in some outerim shithole and a bunch of spacer enter, followed by their recuperated IG-100 who barely hide his big ass frame under a cloak and hood.
>>76071853at very least no worse than the unused raider class concepts
>>76071853>It still has an autistic turbolaser emplacementHonestly, considering the hull he's working with I'm not surprised. I am suprised, however, that he thinks that this is a less stupid design than the McCarrack, the best fast food sandwich.
>>76062636I hope they lose that collection in a house fire
>>76071853His smaller ships are better than the big ones at least
>>76071934The top right one with a big chin is kinda cool

>>76071358>He really needs to design hulls based on functionality rather than whatever shape he thinks would look cool, because all the weapon emplacements look like they're just bolted on after the fact rather than the ship being designed with its weapons in mind.He's actually done that a couple times, and the Dart blastboat/gunship he did with Corelian parts was pretty good. In my opinion he must just have a really particular vision of KDY/Star destroyer design language in his head, since a lot of his non-KDY ships are much better.
>>76072038>everyone makes fightin' triangles now, even if you aren't from KuatIt would definitely be some interesting stylistic development, some small time security firm or shipping fleet starts getting wedge shaped ships just to look legit and militaristic.
what do we think of Howie Day?
>>76072202I dunno of the rest, but I see this Greebled but very usable. That's clearly a Corellian Gunship of some kind and those Ion canons are cute.
>the KSE design team that worked on the Spearhead submitted a prototype for the TIE/rb project>the contract obviously went to the SFS design instead, forgone conclusion really, but the KSE proposal did have its upsides
>>76065683She was pretty great
>>76068277I preferred Linda, but Kelly was ok
>>76072379I wish there was a TIE with a cabin like a camper. A single bed, combination toilet/sink under a shower, bit of food storage. Maybe for long-term scouting missions or something.
>>76072068again again again!
>>76069812I'd allow it, if only he's from some podunk mudball on the outer rim or something where jeans are still worn. Like tatooine
>>76072444Well, look at that length on the pilot's hull, and the amount of bulk to the fighter in general. If you want a camper TIE this might be it, ther ought to be room for life support, a store of rations, a bunk and sanitation appliance, and plenty of space for all the tech for the requisite droid assisted cannon, though maybe not a lander.
>>76072104>those side turretsI'd be fine with the mounting if they were droid controlled, but they seem to be weird side mounted versions of the Falcon's quad cannons which in and of themselves are very wierd from an ergonomic perspective. And considering both how far in those viewports are combined with the fact that this thing is over 100m long (as per Ansel himself) the scale is complete whack on this bitch.>>76072202That's pretty damn nice, we need more ships in that size range.>>76072379Blohm & Voss does it again!>>76072444There's the TIE Scout, I think that's what yo're looking for.>>76072457>TIEIt's fine>Missile BoatCockpit offers fuck all vision>TransportAutistic turret angles but I'm pretty sure they were there before Hsiao did his thing.
>>76072444Uh the TIE/Scout?
>>76072202Better than Ansel Hsiao by a country mile, but worse than ECHenry in raw detailing, though his original designs are superior to ECHenry.>>76071992The lancer would be great if not for the dozens of ugly tumor turrets
>>76065990>the hunt for red october in star wars landThis thread moves like lightning, but could I get some more info on this? I'm the anon running the Imperial campaign, and I was putting together a similar concept where the PCs are trying to stop Captain Marek Ramsus from defecting to the Rebel Alliance. I'd love to compare notes, or at least concept.
>>76072569>>76072657>TIE/ScoutYeah that but not ugly.
>>76072202Looks nicer with the big fuckoff guns
>>76072202>>76072812is it supposed to just be a CR90 without the hammerhead
so what's up with Mandalorian lore so far?Mando was raised by the Children of The Watch, and he knew about Mandalore and was even registered in its central database, yet he didn't know not all Mandalorians were like him? I mean, the first episode clearly state they didn't live in hiding until the purge, which happened when he was in his early 20s already, so you're telling me he never visited Mandalore? He didn't know about the Death Watch, the New Mandalorians, the Clan structure? I'm absolutely loving the TV Show, but it seems to be creating a bunch of canon bloat for literally no reason.
>>76072854Too small for for a CR90, it's probably closer to something like a Gozanti. A Gozanti with a turbolaser emplacement for some good old fashioned shenanigans.
>>76072812Seems a good pirate hunting vessel. Pair it wiht a gozanti if it can't carry fighters.
>>76072907I'm just talking about the fuselage being pretty much identical
>>76066218From what appears on FFG's news about the CIS starter pack, the Munificent appears well-rounded. Sure, it lacks a bit of firepower (2 red, 2 blue frontal; 3 red on sides), but its maneuverability appears ok at speed 2, and it has good shields (frontal 4, sides 3, rear 2). It will be a long/medium range attack ship. If you compare it to a Victory-I Star Destroyer at same cost (73 points), both seem fair, although you wouldn't use them the same way (the VSD shall be used as a close-range assault ship with all its black dices, but it's really slow). The rebel equivalent would be the Assault Frigate. I do not really understand why the ship is getting so much heat, maybe it comes from some elements of the expanded universe where the Muni should be a killing machine, but it strikes me more as a support vessel (it's a frigate, not a destroyer). I haven't looked in details at the options but Armada has been great so far and I'm more than willing to give these new factions a chance. Don't forget that the Empire/Rebellion factions started with very limited options at first. I guess that the CIS will get a large ship later on (maybe the Lucrehulk or Invisible Hand), but it doesn't appear to be a strong-hitter faction. It will probably be a swarming strategy, with waves of droid fighters and mobile support ship.
>>76073025Nice, thanks for that. If it can get toe to toe with an star destroyer, ain't bad, some times I forget how fucking massive the Muni is, 800m.
>>76073025It's because the Munificient is famous for it's powerfull frontal heavy turbo, so having a anemic frontal firepower feel really wrong.
>>76072903I think the wider implication taking everything from TCW, Rebels, and now Mandalorian into account; is that Satine was completely delusional, or perhas was just projecting an aura of authority that was pretty paper thin in reality. Her peacenik regime was a short blip on the timeline and wasn't even fully dominant over all Mandalorian culture at its peak. Other clans existed both on Mandalore and beyond, and they were all highly insular.
>>76072569>Missile boatThat's a Delta class transport.https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Delta-class_DX-9_stormtrooper_transport
>>76072784Somebody isn't getting their holiday spice brick from papa Raith!
>>76073102Yeah, what they seemed to expand is how widespread the Mandos are, they have plenty of planets than are "theirs", like the Sabine one. I wonder how fucking massive they could be if fully arranged, they have plenty of industries too.
>>76073025>>76066536Most games are based on 300 or 400 points lists, but you can run a 150points game if you ignore some options (especially when starting, try to play a game or two without the cards just to get a good understanding of how the ships move) and 200points let's you have some fun. The core set was about 160-180 points per faction.There are some cool articles here :http://cannotgetyourshipout.blogspot.com/p/welcomewhere-to-start.html?m=1with options to get started for under 250$. Basically, you need the core set + a dice pack + 1-3 ships + 0-2 squadron extensions to give you a couple options. The new core sets should be in the 200-250points range: CIS: (70-73 for Muni) + 2x (40-50 for Hardcell) + 4x (7-10 for Droid Fighters). >>76069952I'm not sure what you mean by "investment", but I think X-Wing has more players, although the 2nd Edition seems to be less popular than 1st ed (but I'm no player, so it may be a wrong impression). Armada is very great, but it's a different game, and if you don't have other players, well, that won't take you far. Armada is played in 6 turns, the 1st and 2nd are slow because you're trying to gain the advantage through positionning, and then turns 3&4 are heavy fire. 5&6 you usually try to hunt wounded ships (or flee) and get ahold of the objectives. X-Wing I'm not sure as I don't play, I don't know if turns are limited or if you play to death. Entry fee is ca. 250$/player for Armada, it seems a bit cheaper for X-Wing but it can rise quite fast. Both are expensive hobbies !
>>76073102>>76073143I just hope they confirm that there are multiple covens spread throughout the Galaxy, and that The Tribe isn't a special unique case. I don't want Din to be a unique "last of his kind" character, I think part of his charm is that he's just some (admittedly very badass) mandalorian bounty hunter.
>>76073175>http://cannotgetyourshipout.blogspot.com/p/welcomewhere-to-start.html?m=1That's a nice page, thanks bro, reading right now.
>>76073083As long as you don't get at close-range facing the frontal arc of the VSD, you should be able to fight fairly ! Again, I don't know how familiar you are with the game, but the major difficulty is to get the best out of each ship, and to either adapt your playstyle to your ships, or to adapt your ships to your playstyle. But using the wrong ship for the wrong role is usually the best way to lose it very fast ! It's a tricky game, and I still make obvious mistakes, but it's deep and fun to try new fleet or new strategies. I recently had a game where I tried a speedy Rebel fleet with strong squadrons, it was quite fun ! Before that I had a game with an ISD and an Interdictor, and you clearly don't play both the same way.
>>76073296My knowladge is basically zero, I'm very tempted to play it because I love CIS ships, but the price takes me down. Seems than the game is a lot more deep than I tought too.
>>76073134does he throw it through the viewport while speeding past in a TIE with eight wings
>>76073100OK, I probably missed that. Well, I understand why it would feel "wrong", but it's the downside of a game hat needs to keep stats balanced.>>76073250No problem, I learned about that page here, I'm only passing the good info. The Armada wiki is also a great resource : https://starwars-armada.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_Armada_Wiki
>>76073343Depending on valuable you are to the company, a Twi'lek "intern" (hotness level 1-10) leaves it on your desk, and then she tells you in a seductive voice: "Mr Sinear says Happy Life Day!"
>>76062636Seeing that opee seakiller toy always makes me smile. Of my non Lego toys growing up that was my favorite
>>76073349Yes of course, tough I think it could have been balanced with weaker battery on the side and a meh armor/hull (to compensate for the good shield too).CIS fleet is supposed to be a combined arms thing, where you need to make your ships work together, so it's not pure fighter spam and support ship. In fact, with the Lucrehulk they had the bigger ships in the war.
>>76073332I'd advise to start slowly, with 1 CIS starter + 1 squadron extension + 1 dice pack. So that's below 150$. It may be a great gift for Christmas season (I don't know whether that's a lot of money or not for you, depending on where you're from or your situation, so please forgive me if that feels inadequate). That way, you can start a small fleet, get started with the game mechanics, try out a few combinations of ships/admirals/upgrades/squadron support. If you don't like the game, you won't have spend too much, and still get some nice minis for display. If you like it, we can probably expect additional extension in Q1 2021: probably a large ship at 60-70$, or the ships that are in the starter at 30-35$ Muni and 20-25$ for the hardcell, and so you may want to add 1 of each extension to get more admirals/upgrades options.While the game is expensive, it is relatively slow in new product, so you can budget it with rougly 30$/month.
I'm kinda bothered that the same two NR pilots keep showing up in The Mandalorian. I get that they want to have recurring characters but this just makes the Galaxy feel incredibly tiny.
>>76073530They seem to be special agents assigned to investigate whatever Gideon is up to, not just average joe outer rim patrol flight pilots.
>>76073523Just to explain why people consistently refer to the additional dice pack: in the core set, there were 9 dices (3 red, 3 blue, 3 black), but as soon as you get a medium ship or upgrades, you'd need more than 3 dice from a given color. It can be followed with any method you want of course, but a dice roll where you have to throw 3 times just to get your initial score, then having to modify and re-roll becomes quite infuriating after 2 or 3 games. At this time I have the dice from the core set + 2 additional dice sets, and it's so much more comfortable ! Also, I think there's an app, so if you don't care about the "physical" roll that could be an option.
>>76073588That'd make more sense.
>>76073523>>76073591Cool man, I will have to budget, and even then I thin I will wait until the Recusant or Providence (my two prefered ships) show up, wich I will probably buy only because, but my cousins all love star wars, so I think I could hook them up with it with enough wittiness if I like the game.
>>76073530I'm never going to complain about Paul Sun-Hyung Lee on the screen
About to play Armada with this list, we have it already setup in TTS so I can't change it now. Should I add a second Brace Token with Kyrsta after deploying or go for the cheeky Salvo? I'm going up against Demo and an ISD 2 so I want my squadron orienting frigate to be able to take a hit
My players are hitching a ride on a band's tour bus, smuggling contraband (unwittingly) for the Rebellion in instrument cases/amps from one city to another.What are some heats I can throw at em as they go? At least one speeder chase, I'm thinking.
>>76073751I like him, but each season has 8 episodes. I want them to flesh out new stuff and play around with unique characters and ideas for each story. I don't want the show to break away from its episodic formula too much and just become a character-focused drama with a fixed cast, I just want it to be Lone Wolf & Cub in space. The on-going plot works so well BECAUSE it is so perfectly tied to the episodic format, if they get too comfortable with the characters they created and just keep them coming back they'll ruin the series biggest narrative strength, it's going to be Samurai Jack S5 all over again.
>>76073100Nothing that's ever given those guns stats has ever had them anything more than individually on par with ISD main guns, and it only has two of them. Significant firepower for what's basically a low-density light cruiser, but not compared to the big boys. If anything, the armada stats are much more closely aligned with other depictions of the ship than people's weird yamato cannon fanon
>>76073778I'm too new even to comment bruh.I like how customizable the game is too.
>>76073790Bunch of Klatoonians think they music is shit, start blasting and even being agresive, like sending Klatoonians females to Perrear with them.
>>76073911It's a lot of fun and the Table Top Sim script is really great. Clone wars is launching end of the year it would be a great time to dive in
>>76073588>The New Republic is dealing with too many Warlords and other crises at once>All they can spare to stop the rogue war criminal Moff Gideon are two x-wing pilots>An Ace, and his Buddy.Sounds kino as fuck, someone get the Pixy edit.
>>76073964please, let's not compare Dave Filoni to Cipher or Pixy
>>76073876>>76073100There are two types of retards when it comes to ship armanent in star wars:1. school-playground power creep-obsessed Saxtonites who believe the raw size of a gun is the sole indicator of its capability (without or with contrary onscreen or literary evidence to back it up)or,2. even dumber Saxtonites who treat every "class" of weapon as exactly the same and who believe the raw number of weapons a ship has is the sole indicator of its capability (without or with contrary onscreen or literary evidence to back it up)There doesn't seem to be very many shipfags who consider that seemingly different guns can function identically or that seemingly identical guns can function differently.So for example, you have the Munificent in ROTS (incidentally, the fuckhuge prow cannons are not present on the CGI prop in Clone Wars until the later seasons), which doesn't really seem to act very differently from a Venator (aside from the Venator actually having the insta-death laser beam). One could logically presume that the Muni's larger guns are more powerful than its smaller guns, but there's no indication to Curtis Saxton's ludicrous claim when writing the ICS that it could melt planets nearly as well as the Death Star.
>>76073876It is describe as stupidly large for a ship this size, the thing is as big as half the ship, it's definitly bigger than a single ISD turbo.
>>76065295>war games have less popular appeal compared to RPGsNot true in the least, the minis outsell the RPGs by a large margin. >>76067561>>76067641God I fucking hate the NR Corvus. It triggers me how they ruined the beautiful engines of the Imperial version to slap on that hodgepodge backend. The Imp Raider is a top tier design. >>76069812Is this Wook being fun again? Never forget based Sixes>>76071205That's when you begin to enforce encumbrance, hit them with Ion weaponry, or have fun with upgrading checks and using threat to break their toys.
>>76074018You're right, those faggy Ace Combat redditors are troglodytes compared to Filoni's apotheosis.>>76074155The NR Corvus looks better than the Imp version, but I ideologically cannot stand seeing Imperial triangles in Rebel hands.>>76074105Remember: the CIS is cheap. It probably cost the Banking Clan $19.99 + S&H to have those things torn off of a 10,000 year old mining platform and installed on their cargo ships. Sure it'll emit so much radioactive waste that the the life expectancy of the operators dwindles down to the single digits, but that what those employee liability waivers are for.
>>76074244>the CIS is cheapNot always, the CIS alway had big disparity between really cheap shit and powerfull specialized thing like Droideka who cost a fuckload but are worth the price. And the Recusant is already the space B1 (and also got a big frontal gun, tough smaller, still a pack of Recusant got enough firepower to take down a Venator).
>Tfw you will never have the Legends Republic Ships.It's not fair.
>>76073102I’m pretty sure that was the implication from the moment she was introduced
>>76072907They actually look like corellian made gozantis with a ton of other corellian parts from bigger ships added on
>>76074375all of those designs are pretty shit, except for the Nebulons (although the specific model isnt very prop accurate)in fact I'm pretty sure one of those models is plagiarized from deviantart and another one is ripped straight out of some old 4x game from the early 2000s
>>76074244>The NR Corvus looks better than the Imp versionThis is wrong, but I forgive you. Not everyone can have great taste.

what are the coolest ways to customize a Wayfarer freighter? my GM said I could pretty much go nuts, since my character's had it and a steady income for a long time.
>>76075132load the entire detachable cargo bay with rhydonium and drop it on something
>>76075132Theres a massive amount of room in the cargo area, otherwise take care of the things that matter- engines and hyperdrive upgrades as they're you're get out of jail and entanglements, a couple of guns isn't a bad idea either

>>76075362Yeah, fractals not into colour very much, which is kind of a pity as a few solid primary's in his designs really makes them look a lot better
>>76075132Its big enough you could shove a few X-Wings or etc. in there and make it a 'stealth' carrier. No local garrison commander is going to expect some aged freighter to launch a couple high-end superiority fighters.
>>76075463Someone pulls you over you tell them you're a free captain just travelling through the free space lanes.If they keep bugging you, open the cargo bay door in their direction and shoot them with the battery of 8 light turbolasers... and keep on travelling
>>76075100I figure they're mostly Corellian gunship, but there looks to be some bits of Gozanti, C70 Charger generator assembly, and engines from bigger ship like a CR-90, and weapons from all over
>>76075685In my brain CEC are the type of company that just makes a lot of standard engine and power supplies like GM and Ford, you're going to see them sticking space 351 clevo's and LS's in their ships as a generic 'engine' on a lot of similar sized models. Like this is your big block spess truck motor, its not the best, but it does the job for cheap and customers can find parts for them basically anywhere because they've been doing it for the last century.

>>76075463With a tractor beam to guide them in to slots you could fit about 6 a wings or 4 headhunters in there, in a 3x2 or 2x2 facing the sideThe other popular deck plan for them has 2 headhunters with plenty room to spare in the hanger. The cargo pod is also like 3 decks high at least so if you fit jump seats into a top deck then speeders on the bottom you could hold a lot of troops for shock assaults. The cargo bay is also detachable and its mentioned that there’s loads of custom ones about.The size discrepancy between the cargo pod and the ship itself is a reason I don’t like the deck plan that anon posted and the other official one. IMO the ship section should be two decks, with the section going over the cargo pod being retractable when nothings attached. The only deck plan I’ve found that conveys that isn’t available in full res
>>76075754I definitely didn't type 'lol', and my laptop doesn't have autocorrect, what the hell is wrong with me
>>76071853I've always hated Fractal's turrets. They look like IRL 21st century naval turrets, rather than something out of Star Wars.Like, we know what Imperial turbolasers look like: They've got short, chunky barrels with greebles on them. Not long, thin, cleanly tapered barrels like Fractal's art always uses.
Is this a common upgrade for the TIE or is it showing the Empire turning into the First Order?
>>76076294they probably wanted a model of TIE that could land on flat terrain without looking stupid, since it looks so awkward to balance on the foilsin-universe its probably an outer rim modification to allow for a garrison to deploy from more spartan conditions
>>76076294That just looks like the end result of putting a very drunk TIE Raptor in a room with a very drunk TIE Hunter.
>>76076239I don't hate them, but I wish he'd design them a bit more practically
>>76076239Turbolasers come in many different shapes and sizes. The ones in that picture looked derived from the main battery guns on the Imperial II.
>>76076508The mid size twin mounts don't really look right, I think it's because the actual guns are mounted way too high on the turret.
>>76076239>that ladder on the side of the turretI feel sorry for the poor bastard on the maintenance crew who had to climb around on that thing out in the vacuum.
>>76076570It seems like the exact same style as the Star Destroyer batteries. Long tapered guns that sit right on top of the turret structure.
>>76076638Those turrets are also much shorter, and the barrels' axis of rotation seem closer to middle of the turret than the top based on those pictures.
>>76076670Because that is a battery consisting of two turrets on one rotating mount, with a command station placed in the middle.
>>76076588Weapon tech in the navy is a shit job, everyone that I've ever known who had to do maintenance on something like a CIWS, Mk45 or the like is generally a very unhappy person due to the fact that they've got a zillion moving parts and they all have to run on nuclear weapon levels of go-no-go reliability.I mean the crew might live through a bloodmushroom infestation, MRE's for a little while, or lack of beer or ventilation, but if the guns ain't working, you die
>>76076758>blood mushroomsAh, fuck you, I'm about to eat dinner and I really didn't need that imagery in my head again
>>76076758>if the guns ain't working, you dieThat's a bit of an overstatement, don't you think?There is no currently serving member of the Navy who was involved in a naval gunnery battle. In fact, I doubt there are any currently serving members of Navy who were even alive when there was a naval battle.We're in the longest period of general peace at sea since the origin of naval combat.
>>76076731Anon, the rotating mount means that the entire battery is a single turret. Vertical traverse does not a turret make.
>>76076866>alive when there was a naval battleI'm pretty sure there are plenty of people who are still alive that remember the Falklands War.
>>76076883Ah right, I always forget about that one. Were there any direct engagements between surface ships in the Falklands, or was it just ship vs. plane and ship vs. sub?
>>76076914all 3 british ships sunk were from air-launched missiles, 1 ship was damaged by a land based missileargentinians didnt have the surface power to challenge the brits, so never got a chance to get into a proper battle
>>76077016Didn't the Argies have an old WWII American cruiser that they refitted as their flagship?
>>76077136Sunk by a submarine
>>76076430Is this a Udaloy?
>>76076866>>76076883>>76077016>There is no currently serving member of the Navy who was involved in a naval gunnery battle. In fact, I doubt there are any currently serving members of Navy who were even alive when there was a naval battleThat is not necessarily true, during Operation Preying Mantis the US Navy engaged Iranian boats with naval weaponry. While they'd be on the older side (it's been about 30 years), it isn't unreasonable to think that some of the junior crewman at the time may be mid-level or higher officers or higher administration today.
thinking of running rebel vets now that they have range 4but how do you get the mk2 into range?since it cant move and shoot, even if i can get into range 3 the enemy likely will shoot it first

I hope the next thread demonstration lives up to your claims, anon. >>76078436>>76078436>>76078436
>>76076866>That's a bit of an overstatement, don't you think?Mostly its around the CIWS, literally your last hope before you take a vampire in the arseholeAnyone who's a vulcan or chain gun maintenance tech tends to hate the damn things
>>76064734>>76064787>>76064844It's a Fulgor-class Frigate, one of fractals designs
