A smaller, stealth version of our original Orbital Bomber.
About this creation
LIU Procella - Stealth Orbital Bomber
The Ludgonian Industrial Union is proud to present our newest advancement in the field of orbital bombing, the Procella. The Procella is a smaller stealth version of our original LIU Orbital Bomber (one of the first products we ever advertised on this site).
Procella (Latin): storm, gale, tumult, commotion
The Procella is an orbital bomber, meaning it can bomb targets from the safety of high orbit. Most ships must actually orbit a planet to stay at certain height (due to gravity), but the Procella's large forward engines fight gravity, allowing it to sit in one continuous spot.
This feature allows the Procella to fire more accurately than a moving bomber. It also means it can fire multiple rounds into nearly the same area, you know, just in case the first warhead didn't create enough rubble.
Opposite of the forward engines are, yep you guessed it, the rear engines.
The Procella's munitions are stored in this forward compartment, safe from enemy fire. Here, the compartment is opening.
The open compartment shows the Procella's payload, four city crushing orbital bombs. It may not seem like a lot, but each bomb is capable of destroying a small city. Four cities per bomb run isn't too bad, is it?
The Procella is not self-sufficient like the original Orbital Bomber. It can not plot it's own targets. It is dependant on intelligence gathered before a strike. The Procella has no weapons to defend itself from enemy fighters, but it's stealth makes it a great first strike weapon.
Two pilots fit in the Procella's small cabin. The cabin is located behind the payload, and therefore there is no windscreen. The pilots are reliant on sensors and radar to maneuver.
Note: We hate photographing black products. They never end up looking as good as they do in real life. The photographer was executed for these poor pictures. The designer was severely beaten for choosing black.
Nice work here. Good idea exicuted perfectly and i love it! Just a idea thou: Mabie replace the 4 big city busting missiles for 16 small 1 stud missles if you get my meaning. It would be great for taking out spesific targets if you wanna captutre a city cause it was already white and you didnt want to build another one so just bomb the places you dont want! Or for swarming a single target so AA cant shot it down.
Very nice...yes, I sympathize about the difficulties of photographing black MOCs. And now, a message (because my email won't work)
"You probably don't understand what this means to me...to have my meager existence uplifted by the good rating of an awe-inspiring moc-er like you! And to think, that a veritable god of legos would come down and mingle with the merely average, and aknowledge his existence with a favorable review containing the most holy of phrases......"You did a great job." (To quote Guido from the movie Cars) 'My eyes are overflowing with tears of ecstasy...'
Oh, I wasn't saying that you in particular are spamming, I'm just saying that trashed ratings happen almost every time I leave a review with a rating lower than 4. No offense meant, I'm just making an observation.
Wow! hehe that bomber packs quite the punch! Enough to destroy small cities eh?? Pretty good! I like your ships overall construction, nicely built, and good color scheme. I finally posted another moc! hehe, come check it out if you get a chance! Great work!!
tch.youre right about how taking pictures of black makes it look worse.
I hate the pictures I took of my tank they look horible.but I like the folding bomb doors and uh....erm, uh....how to say this...I will take three of them,just to figure out how to stop them.
Oh a sexy little number in black always floats my boat. Wait, are we still talking Lego? Whoops, I mean, it looks awesome. I love the cockpit-less design; it always gives a sinister look to ships. Has Your Highness tried taking photos outdoors on an overcast day or under cover? I find that works ok for me. Try MIXING black and white in a ship-now that's a b*ll breaker!
umm, i'm asuming that the hull is radar obsorbing, like some stealth bombers that the US has today. or are there a whoe bunch of micro angles in there that deflect radar waves the way traditional stealth works?
The black doesn't look as bad as you think. And from those of us that have built in black, we understand, so we'll never dock you a smiley for that. I love the delivery system for the warheads. Maybe they should have a training accident with one of these over the slums. No, on second thought, Never mind. Who would do the dishes? ~ Chris.
