Decades have passed since the war erupted between the United Space Federation and The Alliance of Free Worlds. A bloody conflict that seemed to have reached a stalemate is now about to change, when a thrid faction suddenly appears. Take control of a fleet commander returned from exile, rise through the ranks of the United Space Federation forces and join an epic war across the stars. Start with a small group of frigates, and climb your way to controlling battleships, carriers and planetary bases, in huge space battles and boarding actions. Build space stations and orbital facilities to fortify your position, build your fleet, extract minerals and research upgrades. Execute boarding actions using marine special forces, and bombard your enemies with orbital long range cannons.

USF Assault Dropship AD-5X "Atlas" - Planetary assault landing craft.

Posted by on

Hello everyone, today we’re going to show the USF assault dropship AD-5X “Atlas”. Assault dropships are mainly used by marines. To check out the marines, take a look at the previous post.

Dropships are not carried by all ships; only certain classes of capital ships have detachments of marines on board, ready to strike. The Atlas is used on hot dropzones, where the marines go first to secure the area – like planetary assaults.

In the game, dropships are so small that we basically don’t see much detail on them; however, we do have extensive cinematics in the game, with the purpose of storytelling.
We really want the game to have an epic feeling, and to show how things happen (even planetary battles, which are outside the scope of the game).

So, without further notice, let me present you the Atlas assault dropship. Although the version shown here is unarmed, it usually carries two 30mm cannons, and an array of air to ground missiles and rockets.

This model is made of 150k polys, so it’s really not for real-time use :)

And a brief glimpse of a cinematic (WIP) where the Atlas can be seen in action:

Awesome totally awesome, my only beef is that in the cinematic picture it looks like the engines are off, something like that wouldn't be able to glide in. Just saying but once again, awesome totally awesome.
