Conversion of the Species 8472 dreadnought seen in A2, for Armada. With a new weapon and some modified textures, and a conversion by Pepperman, it seems that Weyoun is determined to give as many designs of old back to the A1 version of the game. This is wonderful news for those of you still playing A1, and this model is worth a look.
Thanks to pepperman for converting this ship for me. The weapon comes from the galatic wars mod.
This is the 8472 behemoth from Armada 2, converted for armada 1.
