Tulagi

The Coastal Patrol is stepping up patrols in the Greater Tulagi Area, responding to increased Claw activities and a “nasty rumor.”

“I hear they’re trying to sink all the rum boats,” cried one CP pilot at Archerfield.

“It’s simply not true,” said a rep from the Claw. “The rum boats are ours.”

Both Claw and CP paints for the above Fairey Swordfish can be found here (link).

The Archerfield Waterbank News Office (link under Big 7 at right) is reporting that ZSK is actively working on a project which has been dubbed “Snubbie.”

“Actually,” said an anonymous source that was in the Archerfield Maintenance Department told us, “Snubbie is my name for it. It’s the P-47, that monster of a classic fighter.”

Rumors are circulating that the fighter in construction is capable of bombs and ‘on the rail’ missiles as well as a fierce rate of climb.

“If you know ZSK planes,” WBA President Sketch Sun told us, “then you know that this won’t just be a classic warbird. This will be a deadly piece of art.”

ZSK planes are some of the highest rated planes in the world, and regularly win awards. The stock price on the WSE (link) rose sharply after the news.

The team at Astral Tek has created another brilliant recreation, this time the iconic biplane of the second world war, the Fairey Swordfish. With three versions of craft included in the price (VICE, LANCE, and mod), this plane has already been seeing use in the first hours of its release.

“I absolutely love it,” said one pilot who landed at Archerfield Airfield. “You’ve got torpedos, bombs, and depth charges to work with, and I’ve already taken down three freighters!”

The aircraft is the latest to take advantage of the LANCE Combat System, a combat system that allows ships, subs, and aircraft to conduct combat operations in the massive Tulagi Area. In addition to the many participants in the area, “automated” freighters and aircraft act as targets.

“It’s the best combat area for an immersive experience,” said Anomaly Travels. “The LANCE System is huge, and if you like, there’s VICE too.”

The Astral Tek Fairey Swordfish can be found online (link) or at vendors in Tulagi, and FI Industries has already produced a paint set that includes Claw, Coastal Patrol, Archerfield Free Post, Blake Sea Camo, Civil Defense, and retired WSDF paints (link).

Archerfield Airfield’s fire response is “top notch” according to one flight crew who came in with their engines hot.

“Let’s not candy-coat it,” said the pilot of the jet, “we were on fire. They saved our bacon. Literally.”

The ZSK jet was ferrying bacon from Jadu Airport when something flew into one engine, then the other, causing a fire.

“If they hadn’t been there we’d be toast. Toast with bacon.”
