Roman Transport. 17th Century by kceg Roman Transport. 17th Century by kceg
The 'Aquila' heavy transport skywagon.

Although conceived in the last years of the 2nd Empire, the Aquila did not go into production until the advent of the 3rd Republic.

Designed for the Sky Legions by S.Drusus.Sulla, the Aquila could carry 30-40 legionaries as well as all their equipment and supplies. An entire Cohort could be transported by as few as 12 of these workhorses of the air.

Though slow, and vulnerable to ground fire, the Aquila's rugged reliability has passed into aviation legend.

The Aquila remained in production from 1631 to 1649, and was in active service throughout the Roman Empire for 40 years. (Some hardy veterans were still flying as late as the beginning of the Bund Wars).

Is that actually meant to be used in a game? It's very interesting, and I've always loved the idea of ancient-like planes from alternate continuities. Very well done!

You seem very good at modelling, really. May I ask you to do some work for this indie game? [link]

Those models you invent are good stuff, much better than the other ones.

Do you have an established date for the advent of flight?
