Patrolling the North Sea by Panzerfire Patrolling the North Sea by Panzerfire
Commision from :iconlamnay:

A German Navy pilot contemplates her BAE Sea Harrier FA2 jumpjet before a patrol mission in the North Sea.


This one, I'm very happy about. It came out pretty good I think.

The background sky and sea were pretty painful to make and I still quite failed to get what I was aiming for in the beggining. Gotta practice more in that area. I made a couple of mistakes with the Harrier, the first and probably an obvious for the military geeks is the presence of the ALARM anti-radiation missile in what would be a routine patrol mission (In which case the aircraft oughta be carrying a couple of AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles). The second mistake is a slighty perspective error in the aircraft's possition. Although it's only noticeable if you really really take a good look at it.

And before everyone tries to kill me about it...

YES! I know the German Navy does not have neither an Aircraft Carrier nor any Harrier jumpjet variant. It's a "what if" or an alternative history scenario.

The aircraft carrier deck is based on the deck of the Príncipe de Asturias (R-11) aircraft carrier of the Spanish Navy which is able to launch and recover the Harrier family of jets.

Well, I hope you guys like it. :)

See'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

I'm glad you like it. I've never played that mod or C&C at all so I wouldn't know 'though.

Your art is actually among the more imaginative and in synch with my own tastes around. I wish you did more. ^^

CnC is a very cool game series. But Generals is probably among my very favourites. A great part of my childhood. You can have a taste of Rise of the Reds in here: [link] :)

This is what I like about speculative fiction: you can tell reality to die in a fire.

Huh what?

I'm sorry but I haven't understand that. What do you want to mean?
