Xarkon's Kraken
This was created for Saber-Scorpion's design a vehicle contest.
About this creation
This is Xarkons newest water attack skimmer. It is moderatly armed with a pair of machine guns, two heavy lasers, a rear facing turret, a forward facing missile rack, and a cluster mine. It has two powerful engines that, as a LAST RESORT can be un-clamped from the skimmer and fired into enemy craft, acting as extremely powerful explosives. This leaves the Kraken immobile except for two small thrusters. The Kraken can also detach the pontoon-like projections and slip away under water. The pontoons have homing beacons implanted so they can be located and reattached at a later time. It can be used for scouting as well as attacks, as it is extremely fast and agile.

   From the side. You can see the two cockpits, one for the pilot, one for the gunner.

   Not a good place to be if you are on the side of Victory.

   Here you can see the underslung machine guns.

   And here is one of the heavy lasers. Its the little nub sticking off of the pontoon, not the dark red and gray thing. That's the front of the thruster.



Enlarge image
   Here's where the gunner sits. That is the rear facing turret. It can point straight, straight down, or anywhere in between.

   The whole thing resembles the crown of Xarkon.

   Heres an interior shot of the gunner. Behind him is a small combat droid, which is armed with a light blaster and a grenade launcher.

   Here's the pilot. Behind him you can see some flippers. Just in case.

   Underside. The long missile things are the main thrusters.

   Closer up. You can also see the smaller thrusters.

   The trans red and black cylindar is the cluster mine. When released it bursts open, spreading small floating mines all over.

   Here we see it without the pontoons. It is probably about to escape underwater.

This creation looks great and you definitly have an idea of what you're trying to build, but the midsection is too blocky and the back turret brigns to mind the word "overkill". Also I dont really like how the engines and pontoons can detach, because loosing four parts of a re-useable vehicle doen't make much sense from an army point of veiw. Keep building though as I'm pretty hard to please ;)

Awesome! I love the pontoons and the missile launcher. A great idea for a Xarkon water craft.
