TAS Scarlet Airship
The Scarlet is a unique war machine, a concept never seen before. It is big, it is fast and it is though.
About this creation
Some things may seem futuristic. It was made for Divide and Conquer II

Diary of the TAS Scarlet:
April 28, 2013, 4:00 pm:
After a month of succesful engine and weapon tests the Scarlet was ready to fly for its first time. No major problems happened during the flight. Currently it's over its 20th flight and it will enter service in the next few days. Its maximum speed currently is 850km/h at an altitude of 20km, although it may be faster at higher altitudes. Tomorrow it will fly at 25km for the first time, but the Scarlet is combat ready.
This majestic piece of machinery possesses reduced stealth capability. However, it can be spotted at 150km but its guns have greater range than that.
April 30, 2013, 5:50 pm:
The Scarlet's flight at 25km was succesful. Its top speed was 950km/h. It is now ready to be deployed.

And now here is the Scarlet 2 and a half months later, ready to rule the airspace of New Babylon.

WARNING! Boring statistics ahead:

Power source: 2 Expreimental Fusion Reactor

Propulsion: Supersonic rotor blades powered by eectric engines

Armament:
-1 381mm railgun (mach 15)
-2 203mm coilguns (mach 10)
-4 152mm coilguns
-10 105mm rapid fire coilguns (80 round/min)
-1 76mm rapi fire coilgun (120 round/min)
-256 AA missile
-20 Turul anti-ship missile
-10 Kilo defensive laser turrets

Avionics:
-2 mid range radars
-1 AWACS radar
-1 ground radar
-1 long range communicator


First a 360 view.





Yaay! Play feature! It can land! :D

A close-up on the right side crewís quarter and the greebles. To the right of the picture, we can see one of the 4 radars of the Scarlet. Thatís my first attempt to include greebles on a MOC, although nota as good as Mastermind xD

On the other side, itís a bit different. However, it still has the crewís quarter and radar, plus the long range communicator dome.

This is the part that all enemy should avoid, the main guns. 2 swiveling 203mm coil-guns and a fixed 381mm railgun. Note that these are extremely big and long guns. The speed of the projectile in the 203mm is mach 10, while the 381mm is even mor brutal, mach 15.
Above them, 2 of the 10 rapid-fire 105mm turrets can be seen.


This is the gun deck. The small black turrets on each side of the secondary bridge are Kilo defensive laser turrets, these are used to shoot down jets and any projectile that could harm the Scarlet.
A dual 105mm turret is located before the AA missiles (256). On each side of them there is a dual 152mm coilgun turret.


This is the main bridge/escape pod. It has a rapid fire 76mm. Also, the Turul missie launcher rails can be seen here (the minifig hands)

The rear houses the two massive thrusters with thrust-vectroing. Who said only fighter jets can have it?:D Oh, and there are two other 105mm rapid-fire turrets, so it can engage anyone if it attacks from the rear.

The bottom is just as interesting as the top. Letís get a closer.

The massive main guns can be seen here, along with another 2 105mm guns for ground support, 2 Kilo laser turrets, a ground radar, which is essential during landing and the engine gondolas have thrust vectoring too.

These are the main engines that keep the Scarlet in the air.

An AWACS radar is located in the back. Originally, there was a dual 15 inch turret, but I decided to reduce her weaponry as it missed a long range radar.

Crew can access the ship through this hatch and can refill the supplies too.

This is my favorite feature, the birdge can act as an escape pod if everything goes bad. It has enough space for the whole crew.

4th wall:
This was actually made about a month ago or even more, but uploading a real MOC is harder than an LDD.

Thanks for viewing! Tongoria knows where you live, so please be kind and leave a comment or give a like, or the Scarlet will visit you. Seriously, comments are greatly appreciated xD

Love it! Especially the escape pod/bridge, although in a beast like that, the only bad that would come would be for their opponents. BEEFY!!!

Quoting jack kenyon You said about how big it is compared to mine. How large is it? 100m give or take? (Still three times the size of mine)
32 studs long (from railgun till main engines) and it's 8 times smaller than minifig scale. So, 8x32 which is 256 studs in minifig scale and one stud in that scale is about 30cm. 8x32x0.3=76.8m. It's about that size.

So far the best airship in the group, the landing function is perfect, and I like all the details on it. The main gun looks great too. This inspires me to build my own!

Quoting jack kenyon I tried to comment earlier, but my computer bugged out and logged me out, then wouldn't let me log in again, making me think I was banned or something. Anyway, Forget Scarlett, this thing is gold! This airships is fantastic! It is immensely detailed, as well as beautifully shaped. I love the attention to detail, as well as the varied and potent armament. There are some great innovations there too, like thrust vectoring. You have conquered the problem of landing perfectly. My dreadnought never did this, simply landing on its reinforced hull like the ships from halo, preferably, but not necessarily, on purpose built hydraulic cradles. Your ship can effectively land anywhere with ease. I love the main railgun. It looks deadly and fantastic. What you have created is a sleek, refined and fiercely capable airship, that smoothes the rough edges off of the dreadnought. This is what I wanted the dreadnought to be, while it has been reduced somewhat to a mobile weapons platform, not entirely suited to strike missions. Now what we need to do is edit them both into the same picture!
Actually, I wanted to edit the micro scale Dreadnought into one of the pictures, but the big one will be even better. I will do it and you will see how big this thing is :)

Normally microscale spaceships and airships bore me, but this one is so full of detail that reading its webpage is like looking through one of those big books of cross-sections. It's also great to see a MOC with so much actual functionality.

The wait is finally over. now to find a way to render an unkillable airship killable. JK . . . or am I? >:D
