Yup, this is what I've named my faction. It all started with a stolen cargo vessel, (Read:Turtle) That was soon fitted with heavy cannons, and other monsters of weaponry. After using the sheer size of the turtle to force a dock to surrender, a few of their own ships were built. (Read:Partycrasher,Winnebago,Roundabout) Though, they were all horrid, and killed rather quickly by the smaller ships, they needed a fix for that, given, the Turtle MK.3. The newest, and current fit to the cargo vessel leaves it unpainted, and ugly, but working. The update ripped out the bomb bay, and added flack cannons, and more of those "Magic Green Crystals." Leaving it easy to down, but far faster. Soon enough, though, the pirates encountered the United Federation of Arma. After a crushing loss to them, they had stolen one of their ship designs. Through the magic that is the black market, an Avenger hull was acquired, and added onto, named the Vax, this ship is fast, but armed. Dorsal, Ventral, and a heavy cannon will rip through hostiles, though a look, and you can see the Avenger hidden in the jury-rigged design. (Read:Vax Class Frigate)
And, following that, another ship surfaced, using the same tech, on a far bulker ship, the Taskmaster started taking names, and ripping through the sky. Though assembled from junk, and parts, the ships still fly true, from the old cargo ship, turned into a floating base, to the rusted hull known as the Vax, they still ring and hum with the droning of engines, and the glow of supendium. The Pirates WILL be feared. The Pirates WILL Rule the sky.
Hehe, love it. An excellent spin off to what I've already written.
Though, the Skybrand Pirates shall exist in a mirror quantum universe from mine. Due to the fact I want you to have fun with your lore, and still have the UFA run it's own timeline.
To be honest? I needed an excuse to steal the Avenger's design. But, it could be interesting to have the UFA and Skybrand butt heads every now and again.
Lol, that's fine. Your free to use my faction as an "excuse" in the future if you'd like :)
Also, I bet my version of the Avenger can beat yours.
Also, get on Skype you cheeky cunt.
I'm not at home right now (typing on an iPad).
And yes, I'm willing to bet your ship can beat my Avenger. She's a tough little ship, but isn't great 1 on 1.
Damn you. What I did was cut for cut remake the Avenger, rip off her armour, replacing it with a light wood, painting it my standard Light-Dark Blue, and ripping out the for-guns, and placing in a heavy cannon. It's also longer, cause I can't design worth shit.

now that looks like a proper gong show
