Richthoffen class Heavy Bomber
A large heavy bomber.
About this creation
The Richthoffen is a heavy bomber for the Mesarthrim, created prior to the invasion of Terra as a heavy assault/ground support platform. Its combination of missiles, bombs, and cannons makes it devastating against most any target on a planet.

Measuring over 64 studs in length, the Richthoffen is made to assault ground targets and orbital stations, but not really geared towards combat against capital warships. Its fixed armament is comprised of eight fixed forward Heavy Blazers and seven turreted Medium Blazers. Missile weaponry consists of a pair of heavy torpedoes mounted under the fuselage, ten light ordinance hardpoints (armed with air-to-air missiles in the pictures), and a pair internal ordinance bays.

Technically, the Richthoffen is a scaling up of the techniques I used to build Schleiffen. It mounts two Schleiffen type turrets in the rear. I tried to creat a 3-person cockpit, and that worked out pretty well I think. The ordinance bays are mounted on the lower sides of the bomber, behind the automated turrets. They open up and small round bricks can be mounted inside to fall out when they open.

The Richthoffen was made a few days after the Schleiffen. It was an attempt to push the design style to a much larger level, and I think it turned out well. What do you guys think?
