Crimsonite

Plasma Bomber added 4 months ago

Another pure super bomber that is highly agile, 'Crimsonite' zooms upon the battlefield, relentlessly unleashing its plasma payload upon foes afar.

Offense:
- Devastators x 6 (+boost)

Defense:
- A sturdy damage routing chassis-n-prop mash
- A healthy wing lift surplus

Extras:
- Blink Module

Yes, this bot actually incorporates a Blink module - which helps to get it out of a fair number of tight spots.

Its maneuverability is excellent however and it can climb and dive brilliantly. In this it is easily a match for the stockier and sturdier-built 'Goldrunner'.

As such it too is excellent for capping in battle arena.

One thing that I personally don't much like are the belly strut weapon mounts. They do the job but it is tempting to attempt a reconfiguration.

In spite of this, 'Crimsonite' makes its mark on every battle.

It is not a fan of PSKs, LOMLs, Flak or Mortars.

Thank you for the ratings!

The 'Goldrunner' marked a turning point in my plane design methods. As much as I admire it for its blend of speed and toughness I also felt that certain details could be refined, such as the cube or two of empty space in the mid-section.

The Crimsonite is 3 blocks shorter from nose to tip, and this time uses the single cube between the wing to mount some side plasmas. It also foregoes the front and rear strut-shielding. The result is a lighter plane that is more open about its internal architecture - and as a result it also does without the bottom level of "shielding wings".

What it loses in toughness it makes up for with both base speed and the bonus blink module - and it is 'very' nimble in its moves. These days I use a variant that foregoes the simplicity of struts for some bottom cube-n-strut-n-weapon-mount-shielding to reduce the bottom profile and look better - but its now a 'little' more CPU intensive than the 'Goldrunner'. Fair trade.

In the coming week I'll be posting another few bots that I made during the weekend. One bot goes the opposite direction from the 'Crimsonite' - and is a flying tank - more-so than the 'Goldrunner'.
