Crimson Dawn

Post by Alex » Thu May 26, 2011 4:23 pm

Somewhere in the Gobi Desert, 2112, a mysterious figure stands guard. Who is he?
Image
He's part of the Crimson Dawn, an emerging faction made up of hardcore militant communists trying to take over the world. Most are from China or North Korea, but members also hail from places like Russia and Vietnam.
Image
2 squads of troops, most are armed with either an assault rifle or an smg. Pilots wield two pistols. Officers carry katanas and can be distinguished by their gold epaulets. All of them wear light armor to protect them from small arms (similar to the combat armor in Fallout) and have reflective visors to keep out the sun and potentially blind enemies in close combat.
Image
A regiment is inspected by their leader, Joseph Lenin.
Image
He is followed by a cyborg bodyguard (programmed to be 100% loyal and fearless), who wields electrified golden katanas.
"But what about vehicles," you might ask, "surely you can't take over the world with just infantry?" And you'd be right. First off, you would need some kind of light attack vehicle, one that can drive over rough terrain, some kind of jeep perhaps. But they decided that instead using just any ordinary boxy SUV, they could create...
Image
The Sporthog. Who says jeeps can't be sexy?
Image
Armed with two rotating machine guns and a dual minigun turret, it's a formidable enemy to have to face
Image
It's also got two missiles, as well as spots to store gear.
The Crimson Dawn also noticed a need for a vehicle that could move large amounts of troops across the battlefield at high speed, which resulted in the creation of the...
Image
Stingray attack hovercraft. It's faster than conventional trucks and APCs, and can also move over more uneven terrain.
Image
Each side has a dual machine gun turret.
Image
The rear has an experimental plasma cannon.
Image
The Stingray can seat up to 15 soldiers.
The Crimson Dawn decided that they also needed something with armor, firepower and sheer intimidation value. The end result was the...
Image
DRAGON (Deadly Robot Armor Glory Out Nation) mech (the acronym sounds way cooler in Chinese).
Image
It has opening claws to grip things and/or punch them.
Image
It's also equipped with flamethrowers and miniguns.
Image
If that weren't enough, it carries an OT Broadsword on its back.
Image

Your vehicles are pure win. :guinness:
An army marches on its stomach, and its favorite food is fudge.

Thanks, the DRAGON was by far the hardest to build, because it had to A) support its own weight, B) have a full range of motion and C) look awesome while accomplishing the other 2. Coming up with a good acronym was almost as difficult, but then I realized: if they're mostly Chinese, why does it have to make sense in English?

Those reflective visors make your troops look seriously mean, almost cyborg-like themselves.

The DRAGON is amazing, - I wish I had the skill to build mechs like that.
