I really like them, the landing gear on the V-121 Broadhead is very ingenious. Good effect with the stylisation/mods too.

I get the feeling that my updates have been eclipsed...
this displeases me. :x
EDIT:
thanks warhead, they started out as an experiment in landing gear design, I'm very proud of them.

I like the fighter (a whole lot - we may borrow elements of that design :wink:). The landing gear are, indeed, awesome. I may even attempt to adapt them for the Chopper.

The gunship is nice as well, though the shark cockpit throws me a bit.

I'm not too fond of space-ships in general though (as we have decided they don't -really- exist), so that taints my view a bit on the boarding craft.

like the new gunship, and the additional weapon mounts on the breaching shuttle are a nice touch.

Freaking sweet, theres gotta be some kind of award for armies of this caliber.
One question, have they seen much combat, or have they been too busy parading around, being awesome?

The transport and fighter are my favorites. Also, sweet UAVs.

Do you have shots of the big Vol transport from the game you linked to? In the only picture I saw, it was behind a rock.
