After a long hiatus, I decided to ease myself back into the game by reworking one of my older designs. This was my first thrustercraft, and I built when I played through the adventure mode; and it was good back then, before the changes to shields and sabot rounds (Yea, it used sabot spam, and it was good!). But now, after said changes, it sucked bad.

So I gutted the inside and tried to leave the exterior as untouched as possible, making only minor changes to facilitate better evasion and handling plus minor aesthetics changes.

In my testing, it was able to 1v1 godly designs from DWG, OW, and WF but had issues with factions above those on it's own. There are still some minor tweaks I want to make, but obviously the more eyes the better, so have at her! Let me know what you think and what I need to improve, thanks!

So, anyway, here she is.

She's powered completely by steam turbines and RTGs (RTGs for cruising power) and uses draba's hover LUA script

-Detection isn't ideal
-LAMS/Warners still need to be improved a bit

Nice looking aircraft you have there. I'll be sure to give it a try. If you want I can give feedback on how well it does.
Thanks and yes, that'd be awesome
