"Thanatos" Assault Vessel


Designed to take out POI's, Armour is reinforced at the front of the vessel - at least two blocks thick to help protect the pilot from incoming fire. The windscreen glass is reinforced with two layers too.

Thanatos has a fully pressurised, accessible interior and has spotlights facing each lateral direction to ensure decent visibility in the dark.

Onboard Thanatos boasts:

1 x Artillery turret
4 x Plasma turrets
4 x Rocket turrets
1 x Minigun turret
6 x Front mounted gatling guns
1 x Fridge
1 x Armour locker
1 x Constructor
4 x Ammo boxes
4 x Large cargo containers
4 x Fuel tanks
2 x Generators
2 x O2 Tanks
1 x O2 Station
3 x Directional spotlights
1 x Front spotlight
2 x Hover boosters
4 x Large hover engines

The fantastic "Diablo Gato" hover tank posted by Pystonworks (which is no longer available unfortunately), heavily influnced this design!

I believe this got added into the game blueprints, right?

It gets the job done, just approach with turrets ignoring predators, and at an angle that whatever base you are trying to breach, can use the minimum amount of turrets. Only gripe is that the rear door is un-enterable when the thing is on an incline. Same for exiting, or moving about the cabin. Otherwise, this thing is a whole lot of fun to take on, most any POI.

Just have to say... I spawned this after I forgot about it and, it hit me like a present:) Your HV looks great and I was very impressed with the design. Great Job man..

Materials requirement is different now from what can be seen in screenshots. Very different :(

@diche i totaly agree using a hovercraft or ship to siege feels reckless due to how easy they are to destroy.

For every enemie on my world i just whent in with breach charges, enhanced t2 rifle with 2k ammo and a motor bike "along with heavy armor with 2 armor moduals"

The only one to put up any real fights was the abandoned mine due to not knowing what i was walking into and the drone base due to those very deadly turrets.

In the end for that base tho you can just dig under it and use 30 explosives to breach the floor in the core room or get a cheapo hovercraft near it with enough ammo to break 3 layers of heavy armor.
