Heavy Balloon


This unit is from The Era of Magic. Its coding and art were done by inferno8.

As a member of the homunculus light brigade, they are most widely used as its military arm.

Faced with the choice of sacrificing speed for strength, experienced pilots have on board an additional machine gun, yet another piece of futuristic gadgetry used to strike down their foes from afar. Although inaccurate, the machine gun is possessed with a seemingly unnatural speed, reaping death among the enemy ranks. As it draws closer, and the advantage of long range fire is neutralized, a gunman will switch to a more contemporary form of offense, sowing seeds of destruction with explosives that are unleashed to devastating effect.

Special Notes: The length of this unit’s weapon allows it to strike first in melee, even in defense.
