The Steambirds - Comic Series Preview
The prologue to a comic series I'm doing.
About this creation

The U-96 submarine was the lone wolf of the water, prowling about for ships to sink.

The formidable 30mm homing missile senses a vibration.

It launches itself through the blue nothingness of the water.

Somewhere nearby, an unsuspecting seaplane lands on a wave.

The missile propels itself towards the seaplane, whos pilot notices nothing.

BOOM! The seaplane was never seen again.
Introducing....

CAPTAIN HUMPHREY!
Plane: Pimped up Curtis Cyclone

WALDO THE JOLLY!
Plane: The Bogey Monster, a Double Base Thunderbolt fighter-bomber

FRITZ VOLKSWAGEN!
Plane: Lunamoth Cyclops biplane

TOM BEE!
Plane: Azure de Lux, modified with six guns

NATHAN DU VENT (son of the fighter ace Leo du Vent) & FINNEAN FINNEGAN
Plane: Gotha Bronze Model Three

And finally -
LEAFEDON BOWCASTER!
Plane: Automobile, actually. An Arnold-Benz Autowagon.

All of these aces fight for a Alliance called..

The Steambirds Alliance
The Steambirds are an alliance that runs on steadfastness and courage. They had the support of many automobile companies, including Morris, and the Morris Cowley engine was used to power many of the Steambirds planes. A lot of aircraft manufacturers stayed neutral in the Sixteen Year War, although Sunderland, Lunamoth and the three main Gotha companies (Gotha Gold, Gotha Silver and Gotha Bronze) as well as various hot-air balloon makes joined them. All of the best aces of the Sixteen Year War (Captain Humphrey, Fritz Volkswagen, Dobby the Dodo and Leo Du Vent) were all on the Steambirds side.
Steambirds timeline:
1900 Steambirds Alliance founded.
1907 Sixteen Year War begins, Sunderland, Lunamoth and the Gotha companies ally with the Steambirds.
1919 Deperduissin allies with Steambirds.
1920 Deperduissin Limejets, powered by Morris Marina engines, are standardised.
1921 Sweden is made Steambirds capital country. Many AA Gun foundations are built around Stockholm.
1924 Battle of Rikettie. Steambirds victorious.
1924 End of Sixteen Years War. Steambirds = VICTORY!

Very nice group of planes, my favourite is the Curtis Cyclone. Only thing I am lost with; is the fact you said 16 year war. However the timeline dates: 1907 Sixteen Year War begins, Sunderland, Lunamoth and the Gotha companies ally with the Steambirds. and 1926 End of Sixteen Years War. Steambirds = VICTORY! have about a 19 year gap, not 16
