By this I mean Kerbal Artillery Systems- btw did you make those modifications?

Yes, I took the Abraham’s and heavily edited it.

I've built several gun barges, but....

5DBF2436C1CA84B85C34935D3E41324BAF489B46

 

Flying boat. This was my entry for the flying boat challenge a while back, but I figure if I slap some cannons on it it'll be golden.

Edit: I'm not completely sure how to propel my ship. I've tried jets under water but for any real speed I have to add 16+ and they guzzle fuel like Joey Chestnut downs hot dogs.

Edit Dos: I feel like I should mention that the 'real speed' is about 30 m/s, with about 16 Whiplash engines. I might be a choosing beggar but I cannot figure out fuel efficiency.

You're using ramjets. On a boat (well, ship). Those engines are made for high altitudes at supersonic speeds, not 30 m/s. They're great on faster airplanes but at sea level you're just trading 35% extra thrust for 330% higher fuel consumption.

At sea level, panthers have the exact same stats with the afterburner switched on and have a greater gimbal range.

Use the panthers XD

30m/s is pretty good. My carrier only reaches 20m/s, albeit its triple the mass as far as i can tell but im using vectors. No amount of any engine could move the carrier :c

And that provokes a thought! can you put a download link to the craft? I'd like to see a flying boat or two duel with the carrier...

"Breaking news!" An SRNC escort carrier is engaged by two flying boats though its not a plane that floats, its a boat that flies! More on this intense duel later! (when the SRNC sees fit to release the data)

This will take a while but yeah. I have no clue how to BDAc autopilot and I doubt it would fly it super great, and I don't have the slightest clue how to make it use the weapons, but I'll try.

Even when Canadians are swearing they're being cheesy and polite. This goes deeper than I thought.

 

Any tis for calibrating the autopilot?

Not really :P turn down steering factor and up the dampening? also up minimum speed

New boat has been made, but not tested. Going for maximum pretty and minimum part count efficiency here, but considering that it's a RHIB sized missile launcher it's got some murderous firepower. Also built with BDA armor, which is now several dozen times better than standard plate. Not that it matters against autocannons (sadly @Earthlinger main weapon of choice).

Also good to note that 20mm cannons are utterley OP now. They can take out my carrier in 2 bursts, and not from those spontaneous detonations that I havent been able to remove, they just core through and rip in half.

Same goes for strafing bunkers with 6 layers of 500mm/8000hp armor.

No pics yet, SRHC still hasnt removed the top secret stamps and scribbles.. Seems like they were written in permanent marker, as is the usual with the marines. They have released the (partial) lore though. Introducing SRHA Section A-N2's contents.

Spoiler

The SRNC's <snip> class <snip> are some of the oldest designs Sidea fields. No one knows who originally came up with the design, as they are too small to be launched in fleets as independent vessels counter to Sidean doctrine. They must be sustained by <snip> Assault Troopships. (See SRHA Section A-N3 for more data on <snip>) Their primary role is as patrol vessels, scouts for coordinating fire, and as fire support for the SRMC (Sidean Republic Marine Corps, see SRHA Section A-M0). They see little to no use in the SRNC, due to their dependence on their motherships relative worthlessness compared to Firebrand Pattern gunskiffs (see SRHA Section A-N4.

The <snip> is armed with 3 30mm autocannons, 4 Hellfire missiles, and 2 SRAY torpedoes. Armor plating is incredibly high for a <snip>, at one layer of 500mm thick plate. Speed is <snip>, making the <snip> a <REDACTED>  hard to complety destroy. The <snip> has two exposed crew members and is designed for 4 hour long missions.

Sorry about all the references to other craft. I've been quite busy lately getting the SRNC ready.

 

Ooh, SRHC says they've gotten most of the colored pencil marks off. Maybe the pics will be avalible soon!

As in, the vulcans? I haven't caught up with updates since my computer decided to stop using its battery (it's at the point where it overheats on long YouTube videos and shuts down) :/

Yes. Vulcans are ridiculous to the point that they count as anti planet weapons, Just give them a few hours and exterminatus will be complete

Also rip computer

I just found something in BDA 1.6.1... land vehicle AI modules.

Including boats.

SRHC apologizes, excessive use of dakka to clean the pictures has destroyed them... and the secret facility used to store all of the SRHA's visual appealers. And the exoplanet it was on. And the snacks. They will be remembered. For now though, here is our rendition.

Spoiler

The Firebrand class Gunskiffs are one of Sidea's newest creations, taking after AXON's strategy of quantity over quality less armor, not that it matters with the new weapons tech anymore. <illegible scribbling>  As gunskiffs, their primary role is to provide fire support and point defense cover to the capital ships of Sidea. Large enough to be counted as long range warships, they are primarily used as escort vessels. SIDEA STRONK! The mehrenes use them as heavy fire support.

They are a mix between cost efficiency and firepower. They are fast. They are STRONK. Armed with 4 AMRAMM missiles, a 30mm Goalkeeper, and 3 torpedoes, they are epic beasts. Their torpedoes have been known to take out even the largest of vessels. Firebrand SGSK-0321 Hell's Fury destroyed 8 hostile RBS-15 missiles, 2 frigates, and a single heavy frigate before running out of ammunition. SGSK-0629 Stryker is known for downing two fighter bombers and their munitions, saving the lives of many SRGC kerbals. The names of Firebrands are not officially given, but it is a tradition to name the skiffs once they have proven their worth in battle, whether it be by downing an enemy vessel, or by saving a Sidean life. A small minority of the existing skiff force is being deployed to the front against AXON, to save as many lives and vessels as they can.

 

More pictures will be aquired soon. Just gotta find a way to turn off the top secret stamp applier on this our camera

Good job Intel! Weve gotten some intel on the primary threat. Wait... GET THE SKRIBBLERS! WE NEED A NEW BOAT ASAP!

Nice use of the fairings! Also those 20mm batteries are hella scary.

Get Intel. I need to tell them they're fired. <hires a new brain>

Also, writing a bit of a fanfic. Interestingly I cant seem to get the same quality of writing that I achieved in the Sanctuary files anywhere except for the part where Sidea gets nuked. Huh.
