JE MOC: Yu-Huang
Jade Empire escort frigate
About this creation
The Yu-Huang is an escort frigate of the Jade Empire. With the speed and agility comparable to that of a fighter, it is quite capable of swarming over larger ships, or engaging starfighters in one on one confrontations. A glancing hit from a large deck gun would destroy it easily because of its lack of armor. It has a crew of five, one commander, two pilots, and two gunners. Named after the Chinese god, Yu-Huang, who was known as the Jade Emperor, ruler of heaven and Earth, it fulfills its multirole capability with astounding results.

   Various computers, with obvious purposes.

*To respond to a review, these could be one of two combinations, pilot and co-pilot, or navigator and gunner.

   Rear of the engine, also showing auxiliary units.

   A cool design thingy, maybe a possible sensor array or electronic cloaking device. I just really wanted to use the katanas.

   Ventral turret with landing gear retracted.

   Landing gear down. If it looks spindly and weak, well...that's because it is. But its my first attempt at landing gear.



Enlarge image
   The life support unit. The crew have found that this unit has the perfect settings for some captured Iron Reich microwavable burritos. Yep, even the ruthless JE like their burritos.

   Why do drive up ATMs have braille on their buttons?

   The middle section showing the beds for longer trips and the middle gunning console.



Enlarge image
   One of my favorite parts, the ramp. It was too short to reach the ground, so I had to figure out a way to make it extendable.

This is a very impressive ship. I eagerly await more space MOCs from you. That said, I do detect a hint of PCS about this vessel. Still, a well deserved Moc of the Day.

Awesome cruiser. I like the cokcpit, turret & engine design concept. Though, you can always make it look better (just don't poke yourself with the dino pieces).

Sweet ship there. I actually like the use of the bubble windows for the cockpit. Let's you see all the action in the interior. Intergalactic ninjas are also a good idea. : )

Not bad....Doesn't quite deserve a five....yet.. Anyway, I like it, for the most part. I can't say I like the ammount of Dino tails you used though. They make it look more like a robot-swamp monster than a JE craft. I really dig the katanas and the ramp. The cockpit is pretty sweet too. ~Kudos~

A very solid creation, with all the trimmings, but the bubble canopy just screams PCS, and that doesn't go well with Jade Empire, IMO. The extendable ramp is awesome though. I may just have to borrow that idea myself sometime. ;-)

A wonderful ship to see. I also wondered about the ATM thing. Overall a great ship!

It reminds me of the Kalashnikov, only smaller and Jadey-er. The katanas and dino tails make it seem sort of like a tropical fish. The guns are awesome.

By far a very intresting ship but the best part has got to be the ramp, no questions asked. I just loved the over all original design of the ramp and how kick butt it actualy works. Keep up the great work! FP

Totally cool! The best JE ship yet. I love the sleek interior, and the turrets. The ramp is a nice touch. I'll let you slip on the exterior... The katanas weren't too good.

Positives: Dino tails, katanas, that kick-awesome ramp, the little gold pieces, sweet shooters, and a cool interior. Nice name choice. Negs: PCS cockpit, PCS-ish engines, and completely out-of-place auxiliary engines. I should take away your Cool Moc points because you told everyone (and thus, the enemy) where the weak spots of the ship are, but because you had the balls to tell that info when most people don't, you win. Make more JE mocs!
