Hello all once again its me so after the success of my previous bot both on RCG and the CRF im decided to post my "big brother" of the Zephyr. Here is Hiemis the name is latin for storm so there is a fun fact :D

Once again this bot is made around the placement of the hovers with he same basic layer of armor aswell as trying to make a stable and fast hover kraft with infinite energy to keep you fighting or caping a tower. The differences are this bot focuses more on armor but still holds a very fast speed and acceleration and excels at capping towers and killing enemies. This bot is fast and is a very durable craft well still being aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The bot again has 3 layer of armor the core which has a single T5 thruster to both save cpu consumption and still make a fast escape when the shell is destroyed.
(Core) This bots core is designed a bit different compared to the last hover i made, that it is connected to rods that is connected and tri-forced to it for maximum efficiency. It has a single t5 thruster as to keep the balance so it doesn't lean to much in the air near the back and to keep in from being to light due to the hovers aswell as adding some speed.
(Gun) This layer is much better imo as it is almost directly connected to the core with it through prism weaving (you can see it when i show you the core where the core connects to the gun layer the block is highlighted orange) It is much more protected and has a better resistivity compared to the zephyr and the guns are mounted better.
(Shell) The shell is designed to protect both the core and the gun layer as much as possible. But i didn't want to use full blocks so it can be light just like the zephyr so i used inners and slopeds as i did with the zephyr. But this its lighter to make it go faster cause this is heavier then the zephyr and is more tri-forced to keep it fighting as long as it can. There are rods that connect the core to the gun layer then to the core but i found this is more reliable then just connecting blocks to the core. It is much more tanky and lighter.
Overall Build: This bot excels with camera steering but is usable with keyboard controls but i like camera steering better. It is a extreamly fast kraft and is reliable in both 1v1 and it can held its own but i prefere to have a medic when fighting against mechs or tanks. It is much more tanky and tri-forced compared to the zephyr and overall i think this is better besides that it is slower.
Tactics: To use this bot most effectively in battle is to use the speed to your advantage and by going around the enemy by strafing so you can fire and take minimal damage compared to with charging in on the enemy(Works best on mechs, walkers and tanks)When targeting hovers try to have a constant move by dodging and weaving away from the enemy also by strafing around the enemy but this is more defensive when dealing with hovers as they are more agile and maneuverable then tanks and mechs and use covers to your advantage. Planes and copters if they are mainly using smg try to go under them as it seems its harder for them to hit u and keep moving in a circle and try taking of rotars or guns. If they are using plasmas do not use the previous tactic and take of the rotars then engage and kill.
Fast,stable,looks great,tri-forced,decently tanky,and is really nice looking
Can't 1v1 as well as heavy hovers or other bots,Some times back is a weakness but usually u try not to let them shoot there.
I hope you like this build as much as i do it is on the shop search dokido or hiemis. Comments/ideas and criticism are appreciate to make this better.
