[UPDATE] Shirakawa-class Cruiser (+ Type3 Torpedo Bomber)
UPDATE: Original version was missing basically half of its armor. That has been fixed.

UPDATE 2: Type3 Torpedo Bomber blueprint added.

Hi guys, it's been a long time since I've been able to play FtD properly.

This is my first upload for 2.0. I hope you enjoy it, and any constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated.

I must give a bunch of credit for this build to nalho. The masts and ropes, aircraft catapult and crane are originally from his builds on the Steam Workshop, as are the little autocannon tertiaries which are spammed all around the ship.

Also to ZerothAngel for his Multi-Profile LUA missile script, which makes both LUA missiles and torpedoes possible on one construct.

This ship was designed to have a good balance between aesthetics and functionality. Her design is based mostly on ships of the Imperial Japanese Navy in World War 2. Her capabilities are decent enough - You can take her up against any vessel of the DWG and White Flayers (except Devourer) and expect her to come out on top. She can stand toe-to-toe with similar-sized ships of the Onyx Watch and Steel Striders, as well as the Lightning Hoods and Twin Guard if her shields are switched to Laser Absorb. Just don't expect her to take down a Thyr by herself.
