Well it´s been a while since I posted my last ship, in the meantime I have been and am still working on a secret major project :D You´ll see soon (I hope)...
Anyway the newest addition to the Ragash fleet is the socalled "Hopper" assault harvester. It feels at home both in space and on planets, where it harvests fresh carbonide resources whichever shape they might have. Although mostly unarmed they are not to be underestimated as they can assimilate an uncautious platoon of foot soldiers in a few seconds with their Atomizer beam, breaking them down into nice transportable atoms to store in their two forward cargo containers. On the ground the Hoppers run around like crasy cockroaches from one resource to another, locating fresh resources with their two giant antennas and signalling more hoppers to check by. Sometimes they can be seen crouching down on all four legs and then jumping high into the air like a grashopper, covering a few hundred meters easily with one jump, which earned them their nickname. They are not very hard to destroy but they always appear in huge numbers,which means some will always get through...
Enjoy this little bug, 1017 poly btw Image
