Here is FahreS' moveable/offensive fleetyard known as the "Ambush Class".

It's quite a cool concept to have a mobile Fleetyard - makes tactics quite fun (just imagine parking the yard outside your enemy's base and building your attack fleet from there Smile). I guess when the going gets tough you can always move the shipyard to a safer location or as I stated above use it as a mobile frontline repair base and a staging grounds for attacks (It can build a nice range of ships including the Sovereign).

The model itself is quite impressive especially the animiation physics . The shipyard compresses itself when ordered to move location morphing itself into a very cool ship - kinda looks like a capital gunship when in this mode. It's combat speed and impulse speed are comparable to the normal speeds for a battleship thus it can move quite sharply so it is quite balanced.

As for the model's quality, the textures and the detail are superb. This is one of the best mods i've seen in a while , without a doubt. Definately worth having this in your game. Smile

I`ve been looking for a reason to reinstall Armada for a while and congratulations, this shipyard gave me that reason.

Now I need to catch up on all the rest of the mods that have come out since January and install those too!

I love this yard and hope it works great. Since it is so hard to find Armada II I downloaded the Demo. Can I customize the demo at all or do i have to wait till I get the real version?

That looks like something Section 31 would use, if it was a little darker. But it's still AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! 100/10
