Stryker Base
The stryker base. I made this to solve the inherent problem with Grant Smith's "Stryker" Aircraft. They need rails in order to land. Both the original "Stryker" aircraft and the idea for electromagnetic rails are Grant Smith's idea. i just put them into LEGO.
About this creation

Main pic once again. For the Stryker aircraft to be effective, they must be re-fueled and re-armed quickly, so that they can get back to the fight.

Command bunker interior. The command bunker, situated between the landing rails, serves to control Stryker aircraft take-offs and landings. It is also equipped with emergency shutoff levers in case of an accident.

The rail. standard issue, it is just long enough for a stryker to land safely. It uses advanced electromagnetic systems (partly powered by the reactors we'll get to later) to help slow them down (kinda like a high tech version of the plane catch cables on today's aircraft carriers) The lights also indicate "safe" touch-down distances. Any red light indicates an "unsafe" touch down distance.

To bring the strykers to a complete stop, an advanced sliding spring system is at the end of each rail.

Here we see the launch rail reactors, and some other thing, which we'll get to later, between them.

The reactors are built in a linear fashion so that the water is heated as it moves through them. This linear fasion also allows for a faster release of steam to propel the strykers far into the air.

Here we see the crane. Used to move and arm the Strykers. It is equipped with advanced sliding system and internally spooling cables.

The entire hook assembly can slide nearly the entire length of the boom.

The hole in the ground is an Automated Underground Smart-bomb delivery system.

The bomb comes up and the sliders move into place to hold it for the crane.





*Notes: After several tragic mishaps occurring at night regarding stryker collisions with the crane and launch rails, warning lights were added to the tallest points of both.*

Quoting Joshua Morris Nice! I like the command bunker. Can you email the LDD file to me? My email is morrisman12345@live.co.uk
Sure thing. expect an email soon.

Quoting Grant Smith Wait a minute! Isn't there a way to put instructions on mocpages? I would swear that I've seen it before. Haha, I downloaded it on an old computer that didn't have LDD on it and the file was this giant mass of gibberish. Could you try that?
yes, i could. although once up there is no way to take the instruction file back down, although it can be changed. Tell you what, i'll put the instructions file up here, but it will be changed to a different (fake) one in a couple weeks or so.

If there is a way to send a private message on mocpages, then I wouldn't mind giving you my email. Unfortunately, I am not willing to post it in a comment for all the world to see. Is there a message system?

Quoting Grant Smith I guess you could move the reactors inside the rails and have hoses connecting them, but that makes it more complicated, I guess. Is there a way to share the instructions?
only one i could think of is emailing a copy of the LDD file to you. you would need to have LDD installed to look at it, though.

Quoting Grant Smith Brilliant!!!! I love this so much! One idea, though: would it be possible to make the angled rails fold flat and then elevate. If you face the launch in the opposite direction, you could have them land, then slide straight onto the launch rail. The crane looks great and probably works well, though, so it's not really an urgent necessity. Again, thanks for building this and sharing it. Any chance we might find this on TLC's website? If it's there, I might be persuaded to make the Srtyker on LDD, or whatever the heck Lego is calling it now.
I thought about having them face the other direction, but the problem with that is then if a stryker overshot on the rail, it would crash right into the reactors, which would be a BIG problem. with it's current setup, there's at least something in the way to stop such a thing from occurring. I assume by TLC you mean The Lego Company, and if so, no, it's not there, as i used Universe Mode to make this. :/ As such, i particularly liked working on this build, and believe me, if i could have made it out of actual legoes, i would have. sadly, my collection is quite limited.
