Me too. Behind Ace Combat, it had the most room for story development and awesomeness. The original Crimson Skies is still one of my favorite games. It touched an alternate era of aviation most people don't concern themselves with and it was, quite frankly, amazing.


Ever notice,games that have such amazing room for expansions,their parent companies fizzle out? Starsiege with the Banshees on was great too..pity 2485 died :/

Crimson Skies was amazing. I still bust out my Xbox and play it. Gotta love my stolen cop plane.

Yknow,I read somewhere that some of the planes in CS are based loosely on some Early-Mid age prototypes

Dislike steampunk stuff, I just prefer good old fashioned Sci-fi...Like X-wings.  :rolleyes:

I love the idea of steampunk aircraft, but more in a semi-historical Felix du Temple/George Cayley kind of way.

Some of them are, yeah. Like the Bloodhawk is based on the Henschel Hs P.75. That's the most obvious one, anyway.

I don't know if you'd really consider it steampunk, but TaleSpin had a lot of that 1930s-fantasy-aviation-flare that is common in the genre.

There were also the triplane fighters and the airship carrier. Old flying boats aren't something you'd expect to see in a kid's show but there's actually a lot of aviation history going on there.

See the Carrier down there??? WT* DO U NEED A CARRIER IF YOU ARE FLYING??? http://forum.worldof...fault/blink.gif

Aircraft have limited fuel. So the "Air Carrier" would/does carry an aircraft into battle so that it wont waste precious fuel needed during the mission. During WW1 the US and other countries tired using Zepplins to carry aircraft too-and-fro. It was a failure as many planes crashed due to the fact they had to hook their planes onto arresting cables dangling off the Zepplin. However, in this example it has a runway making it a (Probably) much more succesful design.

Umm, Saab 21 and Saab 21R were propellor and jet versions of the same aircraft.  They saw service at the same time.  Not sure the Shinden actually saw service.  Happy to be proved wrong, though.

I like the very first one, the biplane that is relatively realistic looking, absolutely stunning.

Personally, i Think it is based more on the Kyushu J7W "Shinden" (Magnificent Lightning)or even The Curtiss XP-55 Ascender

They are rather similiar aircraft in design however, so it could be either. Theres just something about pusher planes.

In reality im just showing off these rather fantastic aircraft in the wrong thread kinda :P


On a side note, the J7W Shinden is the only aircraft to see military service with a Propeller AND Jet version at the same time.

madiba127, it was to this I was replying.

SteamPunk is cool looking. When you think about it the earth is still using steam power to for electricity which makes this even cooler.

steampunk is always interesting, the designs of these ships, considering sometimes they are not nearly as advanced as our tech today, might be more advaned in some ways, is just amazing.

well depends for the ships that floating i cant see anyother way happening except if they discovered antigravity so it might not be as advanced as real technology aircrafts have but sure they are saposed to have some technologies currently we think are imposible  ... at least thats my point of view on it plus is fantasy :P
