Arkanaut Ironclad

Arkanaut Ironclads are well armed Sky-ships of the Kharadron Overlords. [1]

Overview

The Ironclad is an Arkanaut class airship, an evolution of the first vessels that took the Duardin into the relative safety of the skies during the Age of Chaos. [1a] They are able to act as transports, heavy bombers or gunships depending on their complement and Admiral's wishes, and usually an Ironclad is the flagship of an Overlords fleet. [1b]

Built with large cargo holds, a Ironclad can also be used to transport Grundstok Thunderers or Arkanaut Companies and whilst all the Sky-ports retain much larger and more specialised vessels, they are the largest ships in common usage by the Overlords. [1c]

History

It had been believed that the Arkanaut Frigate was the largest vessel that could be held aloft by a single endrin, with multiples making the fuel required prohibitive for regular usage but with the development of more refined aether-fuel and a more powerful endrin, the Ironclad was created. [1c]

Weapons and Equipment

All Ironclads are protected by multiple layers of riveted iron plate. Its armament include bow-mounted Gas Carbines, Aethershock Torpedoes propelled by mini jet-endrin that detonate in a fireball and racks of Grudgesettler bombs or Detonation Drills. The forecastle is able to mount an Aethermatic Volley Cannon, Great Sky Cannon or a Skyhook and the much feared Supremacy Mine. If the enemy closes with the ship, its crew can use Belaying Valves and Fragmentation Charges against them. [1c][1d]
