May Lady Liberty smile upon us by Panzerfire May Lady Liberty smile upon us by Panzerfire
Background music: [link]

This is a remake from one of my old projects. Here's the old version to compare: [link]

The USAF and USN are putting together a quick counter attack at invading forces that have just landed at the east of Long Island with all forces avalaible.

Any similarity with Ace Combat 6 "Fires of Liberation" is purely intentiontal. :iconimhappyplz:


It ook me about two and half weeks to finish this project. This was mainly because I had to vector each aircraft you see here... well... 90% anyway, The smaller ones just happen to be copies of bigger layers. Although I should notice that most of the vectors made here where done with much fewer details than the main ones in order to speed things up. It was a good call.
The Pilot and it's Cockpit were a hand-made drawing that I included.
The Statue of Liberty is also product of a vectoring work. Although it was quite hard to come up with a "lineart" for it while trying to keep her realistic. I initially planned to draw her but I couldn't draw her in a way that she would look both good and similar to the real Statue of Liberty. ^^;

The City of New York below is a modded screenshot from Google Earth. Had to blur it since the pic got somewhat pixelated ^^;.


The picture includes: F-15E Strike Eagle, F-15C Eagle, F-16C Falcon, F/A-18E and 18F Super Hornet, F-22A Raptor, F-35A JSF, A-10 Thunderbolt II, B-52H Stratofortress and an E-3C Sentry.

It was heavily inspired by this AC6 wallpaper: [link]

I am very satisfied with this project as I managed to accomplish what I expected to do. And now I know what kind of projects I shouldn't be taking frequently. :XD: Seriously, I'm not getting on one of such projects again for at least a year. :lmao:

Well... I hope you like this. I'll take what's left of the weekend to rest and then I'll keep up working.

See'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

Holy S***, it's beautiful! Most of my fave aircraft crammed into one! Oh man, this may be old, but never old to impress me.

The E-3C Sentry though.

Yeah, it may be the eyes of the squad, but later...

haha yeah that's what most are noticing. An AWACS wouldn't be flying in such a formation straight into an enemy occupied air space.

But I'm very glad you like the picture. :)

This looks absolutely epic. The glare off of the canopies, the rising sun, the echelon formations, the simple beauty of the aircraft... Heroes, all of them. I can picture the strike commander in that unrealistically located Sentry giving them a dramatic speech, willing them on to the titanic battle that awaits. Forward, to victory!!!!

Sounds a little illogical to bring B-52s to repel an attack dangerously close to a friendly city, but otherwise pure awesomeness.

I have to admit as an American in today's world makes me wonder about the future of the US. Then I see pictures like yours and it makes me feel reassured that as long as the American people remain united in the common good, prosperity, and defense of the country; then we will always overcome the baddest times. I thank you for this sir for reminding me again about the good in my nation. :isaluteyou:

Awesome! One criticism: I don't think an E-3 would ever get that close to the action.

Certainly not. But to achieve awesome, one has to trade off realism. ;)

I can see it now.... The Invasion of New York (with a cruise missile attack causing a retreat and losing New York XD) and afterwards... The Liberation of New York along with a Superfighter (CFA-44 maybe XD) Boss Battle. UAVs Inculded along with ADMM's making it quite a fight. I play way too Much Fires of Liberation.
