About this creation
LIU Magnes - Vehicle Dropship


The Ludgonian Industrial Union presents a dropship unlike any in the universe, the Magnes. Using an advanced magnetic lift system and a large deck, the Magnes can carry more or larger vehicles than any other dropship around.


The Magnes gets its name from its state of the art magnetic lift system. Powerful magnets, charged to the opposite polarity of any given planet, give the Magnes VTOL abilities. These magnetic forces are enough to lift tons and tons of vehicles.




Note the massive amount of deck space. Yes..we know its beautiful. Place up to six medium sized vehicles or up to three larger vehicles.











Going to be coming in hot? Well, better strap down your vehicles on the Magnes' side or forward mounts. See pic above for side mounts.







Only a small amount of the deck space is given to the cockpit. Note the various systems and greebs on the cockpit's roof. Well, the minor, minor amount of greebs.







In front of the cockpit, the Magnes' payload manager can be seen. These computers and meters help the loadmasters distribute weight evenly.






The cockpit...








Again, without the crew. Ah..fancy stuff here.









While the magnets do the lifting, these thrusters do the thrusting...hmmm, that doesn't make sense. Does it? Anyway, the Magnes is of moderate speed.






Ramps allow vehicles to be loaded and unloaded. The Magnes has two ramps.








A side view. Yeah, we're not feeling too creative today.









A LIU Supply Truck backs on to the Magnes. Its easier to unload this way.







Holy Kaadu! The Magnes' deck is loaded with six Supply Trucks. Have you ever seen a dropship that could do this? Nope. Well, get those wallets out.







Is the crew rushing to ready the Magnes? Nope...they're playing that darn freeze tag again.








Ah, now that they have been rounded up. We present the Magnes' crew.







Note: The Magnus can be specialized to fit your empire's specific tanks. These customized version will be sold at 150% of the standard cost. Tag, you're it.

Looks kinda like a ferry...as an orbital dropship i don't think it would be very practical leaving your cargo out in the re-entry heat...unless you like your shark tacos extra crispy

I like this carrier a lot-it's so smooth and big. Your minimal amount of greebs on the cockpit is still very effective. How can you keep building at this pace?

The alliance will buy 10! Do you accept Visa? (exelent MOC, by the way)

Hmmm, with a bit of modifying the Magnes would be a fine troop carrier. It's a very practical craft, and it looks like it does that job rather well.
