[RELEASE] GTGs Anteus


It's a Poseidon converted into a gunship! Fear the extra turrets (and underside missile launcher)!
Testing shows it'd make for a great convoy escort that isn't huge like a cruiser. Also good for point defense against bombers.

Kinda like a mobile sentry gun really. Credit go to mjn.mixael and Brother Bryon for the entire ship, all I did was rip the cargo arms away and add a few extra turrets.

Re: [RELEASE] GTGs Anteus
Nice. Looks like a good candidate for pirate flotillas. Also, a military version mounting anti fighter beams would make for a strong fighter deterrent.

Re: [RELEASE] GTGs Anteus
It's already a terrifyingly good fighter deterrent when equipped with the right weapons.  I made a 3 ship squadron, one with subachs, one with maxims and one with morningstars and they won almost completely unscathed against a wing of Hercs.

It actually reminds me of TI’s harpy. In any case, an excellent ship.

 
Re: [RELEASE] GTGs Anteus
An interesting idea for sure; I certainly could imagine GTA doing something like that.

Re: [RELEASE] GTGs Anteus
Would fit admirably in many FS1 Era campaigns as a derivative of the Poseidon used as a mobile defense platform. Or, it could be that the Poseidon itself was a derivative of this design. There are in fact many intriguing possibilities.  :yes:

Nice option for pirate factions, too.

I get a Vietnam patrol boat feel from this.   Patcom flavour is delicious.

Re: [RELEASE] GTGs Anteus
Hey, can I make a request? Could you replace the missile launcher on the chin with a multi-part rocket launcher / flak turret instead of an ordinary button turret? Or do I have your permission to do so?

Go riiiight ahead, I'd need about a day or two to do it myself but you can feel free to do it yourself as well.
