I would love to see a unit pack fill with this guy
I don't know if these have been requested yet, but I would be interested to see how they would turn out as units: The Antonov A-40 "Flying Tank" and the Ekranoplan "Flying Boat".
Antonov A-40 (also KT-40): Effectively a T-60 Soviet tank with detachable wings. This was to be used in World War 2 to get tanks up to the front to support infantry. It was to be towed by a plane to the point of insertion and released. It was never mass produced (obviously).
Here's a link to a site with information about it:
Picture of the vehicle from another angle:
On this page there is another photo of it:
I've also uploaded a picture of a Soviet T-60 Light Tank: This is a link to a picture I found, I will have to look into my books for better ones.
Ekranoplan: (the one below is the "Lun" variation of the "Caspian Sea Monster")
This site shows a picture of it attacking (basically a missile attack):
Original plans were to have this as a transport, to carry troops and tanks into battle. Plans were never laid out for later developments, but at one point it was desired that this carry between 500-800 full loaded combat troops and the usual complement of tanks.
The initial thrust (on the original) to get it off the water came from the huge engines up front that were angled down to give it enough lift to get it up to speed, then it would ride on the "cushion of air" that developed beneath it and be propelled along by the horizontal motors.
I have a bit weird request. Could somebody make a swimming goblin please? I mean, he swims. Head above the water probably. Swimming style doesn't matter It's for the goblin wars mod I'm currently working on.
I will use it as the first swimming goblin unit, named, what a surprise, "Goblin Swimmer". Probably it will have a cruise missile flag, it would be very goblin-ish.
Thanks in advance
I would love to see:
Avro Vulcan; Delta winged British bomber.
TSR2; Ahead of its time British strike aircraft. Never went into production due to poltical objections.
Fairy Gannet; Turbo prop driven Royal Navy AEW aircraft.
Buccaneer; Sub-sonic Royal Navy (and later RAF) strike aircraft. Similar capabilities to A-6 Intruder.
And, one US aircraft; S-3 Viking ASW aircraft.
Great request Tank Guy#3! I saw British TV documentary about the Erkranoplan once and always wanted to see it in Command and Conquer. In Civ III would be even better!
could someone please make the shark from jaws? that'd be freakin sweet.
It was made. Search the unit library.
I am requesting I hope a unique unit:
It is called a Mangonel, very simple trebuchet, but also like a catapult.
A Russian Sovvremenny class DDG would be sweet!
Update: Made by Utahjazz7.
This early citizen spearman (or pikeman) has minimum protection and serves to assist archers and the charging chariots. Perhaps to represent Sargon (of Akkad)s early conquest, the unit could replace spearman, and have a move of two? Though not represented on the picture above, he would have carried a simple large rectangular shield with a boss in the middle.
Here we have a generic Mesopotamian, Near-Eastern, Western Asian spearman. Could also represent the Elamites and Persians (before the Persians adopted Median dress).
Here we have an Assyrian spearman. He could probably also serve the Hittites and other Anatolian civilizations.
Persia and Western Asia
Persian infantry, fifth/fourth century BC.
The spearman on the left with the crescent shaped shield is a Takabara light infantryman. The one on the right, with the big round shield, is a Kardaka, a type of imitation hoplite. The bowman in the back is part of a Sparabara team, the heavy archer/spearman pair, a common unit formation during the fifth century BC Greek and Persian Wars.
Here we have a bunch of archers. The Persian in front is a Thanvabara. The ones on the right could be satrapal/subject archers, an Elamite (with the headband) and a Scythian.
A light Persian horseman. Could be Median horsemen, but could generally serve as a horseman for every civilization in western Asia. He would most likely fight with a spear/javelin and a bow.
Here we have the Persian National Cavalry. The tradition of good horsemanship provided the Persians with nobility raised in the saddle. The Kinsmen (Huvaka) cavalry were those of the nobles who fought as cavalrymen in the national army. They would probably also be armed with a bow, and at later times, with the crescent shaped Taka shield. The axe was used in close combat. He wouldnt be out of place if serving as a Scythian cavalryman either.
A sorely needed unit. The Indians have been suffering from the lack of a horseman for some time. As a bonus: Indian cavalry fought for the Persians at Gaugamela.
The minor nobility of the Parthians. These guys fought as cavalry archers. Cooperating with the heavy cavalry, they would shoot their enemies to pieces in a rain of arrows, and then have the cataphracts trample the confused survivors. This is a later Parthian horse-archer, having abandoned the traditional pointed cap of his steppe cousins. He could also find service among the Sassanids, who would eventually replace the Parthians.
The heavy mounted nobility of the Parthians. Like their cousins the Persians and the Scythians, the Parthian upper class grew up in the saddle. Supported by light horse-archers, these Cataphract cavalrymen could literally crush their opponents with their devastating charge. This rather generic looking Cataphract could also be used for the Armenians and probably also Sarmatians and their ilk.
You should probably ask Gaias. He has done some Rome Total Realism Unit Conversions and that game has some freakin awesome cavalry. I'll post some later.
Don't think I have ever seen this classic US Marine,
but if so please direct me to where I can find him.
The last I heard from Gaias (before his birthday thread) was that he was having a really hard time converting the Equites from RTW. I think the problem with cavalry units is that they generally require two models to be animated seperately, but in synchronization. Tricky.
I was wondering if anyone could make some yetis, wendigos, ice elementals, and female angels with blue wings, and maybe some polar bears for a mod I'm working on for civ 3. If I had the programs to do so I'd do it myself, but unfortunately I don't.. if someone could help me with this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks Julian
I think Wyrmshadow made the Ekranoplan: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=194588
He also has some of the aircraft I wanted there - the Buccaneer, TSR2 and Vulcan but no S-3 or Fairey Gannet yet that I can see.
It appears he did, but I don't believe the one he made was the "Lun" variant (i.e. anti-ship cruise missiles on it's back). He misnamed it the Lun, but the A-90 is correct. I would inform him, but...
I'm a nitpicker when it comes to details.
Well ... Wyrmshadow doesn't like to be pestered! Not many of his units have been released yet. But he has a huge workload. Those who wait ... also serve lol.
I realis there isn't much chance of this, but I would love a Nuckelavee. It's a myth from Orkney. Essentially, it's a horse with a man's upper-body growing out its back where the rider sits. The horse has one eye and a wide mouth like a whale. The man's arms are too long and drag along the floor. The man's head is too big and heavy for its shoulders and hangs forward. The whole beast has no skin and you can see its black blood in its yellow veins.
There's a Wikipedia entry here:
And the original account of it:
My favourite representation of the nuckelavee is the Monster In My Pocket toy. This isn't a very clear image, I'm afraid:
I would also like to second the request for a werewolf.
FB-22 a high end attack aircraft under developement.
USS Gerald R. Ford
Virginia Class Submarines
Type 212 Class Submarine
whats the difference between the virginia class sub and the one thats in the game already?
