*Warning: The attached video has some disturbing war imagery, viewer discretion is advised*

This ship flies and fights using the Movecraft plugin for Bukkit/Spigot servers. However the weapons are all just redstone devices and will work fine without Movecraft. So feel free to use this in your RP/Adventure maps. This ship is not completely finished, and has a few rough edges.


When the technology sharing program between South Haven and the Royal Navy was begun, the first ships to begin construction with Robert Bellamy's new weapons and armor was the Battlecruisers. Because they would take the longest to be completed, they were the first to be started. While this did allow the first Battlecruisers to take part in the latter parts of the war, it also meant that they did not benefit from the lessons learned when integrating these new technologies with Royal Navy designs and by the time they came out they were alread in some ways inferior to the Destroyer and Corvette designs. Although, they still had significantly more firepower, range, and armor than the smaller designs, they were plagued by other limitations. For example, if the Gunnery Bridge was destroyed, it was difficult to control the weapons from anywhere else on the ship.

So work was immediately begun on a retro-fit for the Battlecruisers. The resulting warship was an impressive display of Royal Navy engineering. Only the Goliath could match it in sheer durability, with advanced composite armor thick enough to endure all but the toughest of punishments. Also, it carried 6 fighters of the new advanced designs, more than any other Royal Navy warship. And its main battery range and firepower was greater than any other Royal design, including the venerable Goliath. Although the much larger Goliath still had an edge when it's secondaries were included. Finally, the addition of bombs and the flaming arrow ground attack capability made it a true all purpose warship, as opposed to the stricly ship to ship combat orientated Goliath.


4 x CST adjustable arc scattershot turrets, controllable from the bridge, nose, and tail (DO NOT FIRE WHILE MOVING)
40 x Dual Purpose AA / Ground Attach guns (16 on each broadside, 6 fore and 2 aft), includes lava ignition ability

Yeah, this one has a few problems. I'll probably just release the original, which was the one I made.

Could you post the old/prototype schematic as well?
I'd like to see what the differences are between them.

Finally you posted this! It's amazing but...What in the world happened to the bridge? It doesn't look nearly as good as the old model.
