That is just awesome. Personally I have thoroughly enjoyed the way you developed this

It looks great, but something I wouldn't want to see coming at me. What type of beam weapon is in the turrets?

Thanks for the compliments, colleagues. This was a blast to build - the next sps will be either the Pompei As You Go (ex-USS Vesuvius) or the Great Beastern (ex-SS Great Eastern).

Frank - from the opening post
Quote
The after turret used a pair of Ancient Atlantean weapons, a 'fire lance' and an 'audio pulse amplifier'. The former projected a thin beam or 'spear' of super-heated plasma, contained by
a powerful magnetic field, with a range/terminus of around half a kilometer. The APA projected pulsed soundwaves that at first simply bounced
off the target, to be analyzed by an Atlantean Difference Engine, which would then modify the pulse to the vibrational frequency of the
target, and "Shake them up a bit", as Aunt Sekrit was wont to say.

The range on the Fire lance is probably a bit optimistic - we've talked about plasma weapons before, I recall. ;)

One wicked warship.  With enemy focusing attention on bow (great treatment there) they unsuspectingly get zapped by stealthily mounted plasma beam.   From that moment their day goes downhill fast.
Do like those swing out planks.   Would not thought of them.   Grappling gear from base to tips is convincing.   It all works for what it is.....  8)  :-*

Think plasma beam would have longer range on flat earth ?
