A senior officer in the fictional army. I'm going for a traditionalist nation with a monarchy -that's about all the details i have at the moment. Tech level is about 1920s-30s but different. Pulp fantasy.

A heavy infantry design. This troop type would be split into small units to spearhead an assualt on a fortified enemy position or to counter assualt enemy troops.
Only the biggest and strongest soldiers are chosen for this formation -trained to an exceptional level. Heavily armoured and equiped with grenades , hatchet and flame thrower.

For Cataclysm 2nd.

I was never satisfied with the Frigate selection in the Cataclysm game. Lacking at best, insulting at worst, the frigates for the Somtaaw side were made of pure gimmick and no substance. I absolutely hated the voice acting for the multibeam frigate, also.

Replacing them would be these frigates. Not all the conceptual designs are shown.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-1.44

The Mikoyan Project 1.44/1.42[1] is a fifth generation jet technology demonstrator developed by the Mikoyan Design Bureau. Apart from a number of names along the lines of "Object/Project 1.44/1.42", the aircraft is also known as the MiG-MFI. Although the MFI was once known as the MiG-35, MiG is now using this designation for an advanced Mikoyan MiG-29.

Development

The 1.44 was Mikoyan-Gurevich design bureau's entry to Russia's Многофункциональный Фронтовой Истребитель (Mnogofounksionalni Frontovoi Istrebitel — Multifunctional Frontline Fighter) program (a development program that originated in the 1980s, similar to the Advanced Tactical Fighter program held in the United States). It was designed to compete with the American Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor. Many of its design features are similar to those found on 4.5 generation Western fighters, including supersonic cruise and modern avionics. Looking back upon its development history, the 1.44 served purely as a technological showcase and testbed for future aircraft designs, not as an actual air superiority fighter prototype.[citation needed]

The MiG 1.44 has been shrouded in mystery throughout the course of its existence. The Russian government cancelled the MFI program in 1997 due to the unacceptably high per-unit cost of the aircraft (Ф2.05 billion RUR, US$70 million). Development continued, with the first test flight taking place on February 29, 2000 and two confirmed test flights in 2001. After the cancellation of the MFI program the PAK FA (Перспективный Авиационный Комплекс Фронтовой Авиации — Perspektivnyi Aviatsionnyi Kompleks Frontovoi Aviatsyi — Prospective Air Complex for Tactical Air Forces) program was initiated in order to develop an aircraft designed to fill a role similar to that of the F-22, and come at a size and cost similar to that of the F-35 Lightning II.

In 2001, India agreed with Russia to make the PAK FA program a development/production joint-venture between the two nations. Both Mikoyan-Gurevich and Sukhoi submitted concepts to the Defense Ministry for the PAK FA program (MiG entering an updated Project 1.44), but the Russian Defense Ministry selected the Sukhoi Design Bureau as the primary contractor for the PAK FA fighter. Design work has commenced on a backward-swept winged derivative of Sukhoi's experimental Su-47 Berkut aircraft. PAK FA proves to be a very ambitious program, with production of the PAK FA fighter planned to commence in 2010. MiG-MAPO and Yakovlev have also been mentioned as secondary contractors. The MiG 1.44 formerly served as a technology demonstrator for the PAK FA program. The in-development PAK FA aircraft will use the same in-development Lyulka AL-41F engine planned for the 1.44.

Despite the non-production status of the 1.44/1.42, NATO has assigned the reporting name "Flatpack" to this aircraft.[2]

Design

The 1.44 is a delta-winged, twin-tailed single seat air superiority/strike fighter with an all-moving forward canard plane. It is powered by two Lyulka AL-41F afterburning, thrust vectored turbofan jet engines, each generating 175 kN (39,340 lbf) of thrust (these engines are still in development). Both engines are fed by a single air intake placed under the fuselage. The 35-ton aircraft has a theoretical at-altitude maximum speed of Mach 2.6, and is capable of long-term supersonic flight. The 1.44 has a tricycle landing gear system, with a single, dual-wheel landing gear in the front, and two single-wheels in the rear.

The glass-cockpit-enabled fighter features a pulse Doppler radar with a passive electronically scanned array antenna. The radar system is linked to a fire control system that allows the fighter to engage up to twenty separate targets at the same time.

A 'Demi-Shell' from my Anno Astra setting...

Fuji Heavy Industries Shoki

Intended for civilian, law-enforcement and security use, the commercially available Shoki was designed for speed, silence and maneuverability while operating in a built-up environment such as many urban areas. Weighing in at a little more than 2 tons, the Shoki’s light weight and generous foot area gave it a ground pressure slightly lower than that of an average human male. Armor, thickest in front of the cockpit, was a lightweight composite composed primarily of plastics & a pseudo-organic material, based on chitin, with limited self-repairing capabilities. While not intended to stand up against dedicated, armour-piercing munitions, the frontal armor was deemed more than adequate against conventional small arms. To reduce weight even further, the internal, load-bearing framework was made of a blend of metalled glass alloys and fiber-reinforced plastics characterized by high elastic moduli. CNT layers were woven concentrically around the alloy core, in a helical arrangement which was looser than the norm. This, in conjunction with the demi-shell’s carefully-arranged artificial musculature, took the place of conventional shock absorbers. The soles of the feet were made of a rugged, pressure-regulated, inflatable elastomer reinforced internally with monocrystalline iron whiskers, providing maximum contact and traction with the ground while minimizing environmental damage. Instead of a centralized power supply, the cores of the internal framework’s structural members were composed of ‘spin battery’-type storage cells which formed a distributed, highly redundant system. The individual members were also laminated with a piezoelectric material; the natural flexing that occurred during normal movement produced a small but significant trickle of electrical current which helped in prolonging the Shoki’s operating time.

Due to its construction, the Shoki’s hardpoints were not rated for particularly heavy loads. The various weight-saving measures that were implemented also limited its ability to use heavy weapons and other equipment. Its lack of a conventional shock-absorbing system also gave the operator a rougher ride when compared to other demi-shells of the same size class. In spite of these drawbacks, the Shoki enjoyed brisk domestic sales, due in no small part to its low operating and maintenance costs. It proved popular with domestic law-enforcement, as its light weight made it easily transportable by civilian air and ground transport and its near-silent operation, coupled with its low ground pressure, allowed it to operate in high-density residential areas with a minimum of disturbance.


Blablabla, sci-fi technical gobbledegook, writer's block, etc. This was already done last January, but I really couldn't think of anything worthwhile to write about it until recently.

Oh, and the small reddish glowy things in the slits are cameras/monoeye sensors/whathaveyou.

Another sketch, another mecha... tried something a little more rounded and organic like with this one...

again this was another one from my train sketches...

think me needs to spend some time working on cloth and fabric now... time to expand the ol horizons. oh and make some damn legs for my mecha! :D

Nothing much to say :)

Well, second version of my mech design study :p this time old meets new ^^

Armed with 4x8 Short Range Missiles and a 25 shot ww2 style, top feed (from 3 ammo catridges) fast firing grenade launcher :p

In my scrapes section are other versions, as you can see from these.. i went kinda away from convential design norms :)

Rendertime: 1h 03m
Polygons: 114 320

Btw, Yes.. I went out of ideas at some point .)

Edit: Fixed typos
