The Jade Empire Ju Zhen, or Iron Needle. An Iron Reich-inspired heavy bomber that carries a devastating missile into the heat of battle.
About this creation
April 2004

As the Jade Empire continues to swarm its way through peaceful .space systems, Intelligence has gathered data on a new attack craft.

A crucial space battle for control of an Iron Reich outpost became the testing ground for a new Jade Empire weapon....and the success of the experiment meant the loss of a base for the Reich, along with most of the fleet units defending it.

The Ju Zhen (Iron Needle) has one purpose in battle: to ensure that it delivers its deadly payload into the heart of enemy fleets.

This moc came from a desire to merge Keith Goldman's Lo Pan fighter with my Jiao-zhan Dou, a combination of the more angular, mechanical style and the organic, flowing style. Chris Maddisonís Irezumi pulls this idea off much better.

   The cockpit portion also serves as an escape pod if the vessel is in danger, or the missile malfunctions.

Nice color scheme, it really lives up to the 'Jade' name. I like how it's mini-fig size but it isn't overly big or complicated. Well done sir.

This is way cool. I love how it looks both organic, and man made. Interesting concept. It reminds me of one of those WWII dive bombers. Good job.

The Ju Zhen is very good, though I don't really like how many vessels are boxed-shaped.

Very good Jade Empire MOC you have there. There is one thing I about this creation? What is the reason for the thing under/behind the cockpit? If it is missile-place or some thing like that I understand. And could you give us some photos of that part? -Q
