Are there any pics of the Gargant?
I've heard people talking about it and heard it's bigger than the Gigas class.
Also, is there a Terran juggernaut called the Icanus?  There were some tech room references to it, and I found a huge terran-looking ship in the .vp, and I was wondering if that was it.

The Icanus is the largest EA ship.
I don't think I have any online pics of the Gargant right now. It's kind of a big Sathanas looking thing. 37.8km long with 110 turrets.

It's also near invulnerable to every weapon in the modpack, with only the Icanus main cannon able to scratch it.

that's why it is designated Shivan Hive Gargant...
it looks really massive to me... the Gigas is also very big (long) but since it's tiny it does not appear to be as threat as Sathanas... that's why I like Gargant... it's simply like Lindos... it looks big although the are bigger ships... but Gargant does not only appear to be big... it really is...

The Gigas is 22km long, 91 turrets and has the offensive power of at least 10 Armitayas, or 15 Saths.

You should be more afraid of the Gigas than Gargant, as you'll have to deal with the Gigas directly...

Of course... but for me the Sathanas/Gargant looks scarier than Gigas... it's just my opinion...as they seem to be more content...

So how have you seen the Gangant?  Are you part of the team, or do you just have inside information?

Gargant pics have been posted several times over the last three years, he probably saw it last time it was posted...

Gargant in a nutshell:

Take a Sathanas, increase it size 10x, increase length by 3x. Cover it with beam cannons the size of crusiers and stick a bigger subspace weapon on the front...viola, the Gargant.

If you look at the publicity shots on the credits screen of R1, there is a render called "Unstoppable". The large Shivan ship in the centre is the Gargant.

Actually take a Gigas Type 1, slice off the bottom, rotate it and mirror it, rescale, and you get a Gargant.

Yeah that render by Setekh is it, that's an older version though with less turrets.

Huh? What's happened to the Gigas. It looks so wierd. So does the Icanus for that matter. Then again i've never seen them in HTL before, so maybe its just the light.

What program is that BTW? Modelveiw?

Both are newer models to the R1 variants. The Gigas is quite different, with some changes to the Icanus.

That's the latest Inferno build
(press F3 in the mainhall in any fs open build)

[sarcasm] Does the Icanus actually have a fighterbay now? :lol: [/sarcasm].

Unless you want to keep it a mystery, could we see a brighter pic of the new Gigas model? It just doesn't look right in that pic, and knowing the godlike modeling skill the team has, i'm guessing its the pic not doing it true justice.

We haven't got any modelers anymore, haven't had any for over a year.

I'd hate to say it, but i don't really like the look of the new Gigas. It looks really basic compared to the Icanus. Maybe its just the camera positions.

Well it is only 814 polygons, the Icanus is a lot higher than that.
