The_Hunter
Hello everyone!

Today we have a small vissual update on some new graphics and designs for existing units aswell as a few (partialy) new ones:


First of is the F/B-22 with a shiney new model.
In our previous update we explained that the Drone bombers will be replacing the Generals power airstrike but the F/B-22 will remain ingame as a buildable bomber.
This new F/B-22 will be replacing the aurora bomber for General Townes and drops a laser guided bomb that can be upgraded to become a bunker buster.


Next is our Tornado Bomber which will be replacing the B-1 Lancer and otherwise function entirely the same.
The wings on this plane will fold out when taking off in the same manner as the B-1 Lancer in 1.0 allready does.


And last but not least is our newly designed Laser Stealth Fighter.
Unlike what the name suggested the stealth fighter does not use laser weapons but is instead armed with 2 fully rotatable autocannons that deploy from the sides when it is ordered to attack.

That's it for today stay tuned for more updates coming very soon!

Haha! You forgot "ammounts"! biggrin.gif
And now I will go unpack a 2000x2000 map and let the planes do some test flights.

Are my eyes screwin with me or is that stealth fighter longer in the second picture? huh.gif

How does Laser Stealth Fighter autocannons work (like AFG flying drone or like Desert Fly)? Does this mean the fighter no longer need to reload?
Raven
awesome!! I really like the first 2 models. Not a big fan of the stealth model. Feels a bit too chubby
Waris
Glad to see the B-1 went and be replaced. Will it return as a GP carrier though?

The new Laser Stealth Fighter looks like a swimming frog. Cute.

First picture: not flying
Second picture: flying

The new Laser Stealth Fighter looks like an F-117+Blackbird+Shinden frankened together. 8Ip.png Looks cool though.

Anyway, glad to have replaced as scaled-down B-1B and the F/B-22 finding a new lease on life. smile.gif

If it wasn't so fat it wouldn't be able to store the guns inside the chassis wink.gif

Nope but you can still see it preforming bombing runs in ROTR.

I don't consider this a small update due to the awesomeness I8pink.png

Right um...I can't view the images in full size when I click 'em. Maybe another host would be nice~
Edsato82
Very nice updates, I love the models that have been created.
Anubis
Really nice stuff. While the new lazor toys aint exactly new, since they replace already existing units, they add a bit of a different playstyle which is good. I for one am still hoping for a totaly new unit added to the existing numbers; but ohh well. Still a really nice update. And the lazor fighter is awsome. IPS does some amazing stuff.

Is it the same Vulcan miniguns in the A-10 for lore's sake?
Sup with that?
The Tornado bomber is really cool, but for some reason the stealth fighter... I dunno, it looks too weird...

thanks^^
wait till you see that steath "fighter" in action.
I can tell you it sure is a totally new unit. wink.gif

Why autocannons and not lasers? Having pin-point lasers would mean that shots would not miss, but an autogun would spend too much ammunition. I thought Townes was all about combat efficiency mellow.gif. Even rockets are laser-guided, bullets just seem a little unorthodox for him.

Nevertheless, I really do like the new models smile.gif. I'm glad that Townes is also getting a new bomber, Aurora was never his style.

Love it! Can we see a sneak peek of the stealth fighter in action? 8I.gif

All I can say is, once you see it ingame, it'll all make sense 8I.gif

I guess I'll just wait and see then mindfuck.gif.

Though I hope it's something more creative then "Laser-Guided Bullets".

Because not everything needs to be a friggin laser.
sHanKzZz...
cant stop loving you guys!
iv been a fan of Shockwave since over a year... CnC Generals : Zero Hour was my favorite game, and you guys just bettered it with this amazing mod... after playing .95 for over a year i was desperately waiting for 1.0, feeling sad all the while that there would be no more. but then this happened!
i know im not a regular here, on the forum that is, but thats coz i dont have a permanent net connection, yet...
thank you SWR team for modding the best strategy game ever! mindfuck.gif

Yes it does, anyone who thinks otherwise is a fool! screwyou.gif

But seriously, it doesn't have to be a laser. You do have a point, Townes has too many lasers. That's why we invented things like Rail-Drivers, Gauss and Coil weapons. Having some other somewhat creative thing other then "it dun shot boolets" would make Townes appear more enticing.

And here I thought we weren't getting anything new after 1.0! So excited for the next update.
