Flying Fortress


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

Flying Fortresses symbolize the height of dwarfish ingenuity. Looked upon as an airborne tank, a Flying Fortress employs a trio of immense rotor blades to support their flight, with the giant balloon retreating into a secondary support. As well as enabling the crew to equip themselves with larger and more powerful weapons, it has also nullified the great weaknesses previous models had against fire.

These intimidating monsters are capable of dominating the skies, unleashing their wrath upon those unfortunate enough to cross their path. If the twin powered heavy cannon fire does not spell their doom, then the chattering of the machine guns and the pounding of explosives will. Over the centuries, they have accrued a fearsome reputation, and are rightly feared by all but the strongest foe.

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