How easily the desire to defend can turn into the need to subjugate when strained through the mesh of paranoia and/or greed. Something to think about. As fascinated as I am with the technology and, honestly, the ambient tinge of power inherent with this type of tech, I feel that I need to keep reminding myself that these very much are about intimidation and extermination. We humans seem to be pretty good at that. Just thinking....
CH53 Sea Stallion: Credited to mandun free at sketchup warehouse (texturally tweaked)
Amphibious Assault ship with aircraft compliment free at Sketchup warehouse by 81armysoul...textures tweaked and numbered for LHAUSS Saipan
USS Chafee (DDG-90): also free at sketchup, and if I could read the language, I'd give 暗夜狐狸 the modeler profuse credit.

I have to agreee Bill. While i'm one of the first to be fascinated by military vehicles and hardware, I have to remind myself that these are not only tools of defense but are also capable of extreme distruction and misery. A very fine image with all of you usual skill :)
Mind you, amphibious assualt ships make great disaster relief platforms... when they are actually seaworthy that is... Thats simply an awesome task force scene- clearly the model is gob-smackingly good for a Sketch-up "recruit" but you've done it again with the scene. The wake looks fantastic too!
