As promised last time here is a run down of the three bomber types avaliable to the British, as well as the boarding aircraft used to capture enemy airships. Bombers play a more important role in AWAAP than they did in the original homeworld games, and they face greater threats in the form of enemy strikecraft. For that reason there are three diffrent levels of bomber, with varying bomb loads and armaments, but all of which may find themselves effective at any point during a game, rather than simply as part of a tech race.

Any feedback welcome. The next release will focus on the Ironclad and Dreadnought class ships, and the barrage ballon and its various add-ons. I should also say the Pirate side are starting to look very intresting. With only one airship and a handful of strike craft anyone playing as them will require a considerably diffrent approach in order to prevail.

I understand what your saying Wraith, and I'm sure there are more than a few people who are suffering from Wing And A Prayer lethegry at the moment, but concepts are all the mod has visually at the moment, and as such they're the only effective way of catching people eye and generating intrest in the project.

As I've mentioned before Sin I want to avoid starting something I may not be able to finish. Actually creating a team is a massive commitment, and one I'd rather not make till the design aspect is complete and I (and any prospective team members) know exactly what we're dealing with.

with such good drawings the models are really easy to make. I started a Dreadnought yesterday and got it half finished already. I'm only doing it for fun, but anyone who knows how to use blueprints in hismodeling software will take much advantage of these very clean pictures. And he has to get the armada ready, before sending it out to the modeling department, so that's good stuff for me.
Although... DrZais you should probably send out invitaions saying you are recruting people for this mod or star a thread about it. Get some coders onboard, because they are hardest to find;-)

I like the blueprints, they give a good idea of what to expect designwise from the mod. Plus they are pretty cool concepts :)
