Found this on Deviant Art

Work in progress ::

Cool!!! 

Is that an aerial aircraft carrier in the background?

Looks like something out of a manga film.

Perhaps it's firing "aerial torpedoes" against floating freighters?

Agreed, and they must have a mini version of whatever is keeping the ships up in the air.

I love these!!

I'll never forget the first time I had a Mars unexpectedly pass by overhead... it wasn't all that low but I swear it was louder than when I got low-level buzzed by the Mynarski Lancaster!
