G’day, mates! Eddie Kelly here, with a special message from Oz.
No doubt you’ve all seen our Dundee bomber by now. A right beaut she
is, is that Ozzette! Well, the fine blokes who recreated it for this
ace game have asked me to give you the drum on it – so here it is!
Named in honor of one of the most renowned parts of Australian
history, the Dundee is an advanced space bomber, equipped with
high-powered Kinetic Missile Launchers. The ship’s hull is fitted
with solar arrays and several actuators, to allow it to quickly open,
thus exposing the main offensive systems,
|which are otherwise
protected by the armored nose cone.
The Dundee is proudly adorned with an image of the
Australian flag and the logo of Australia’s National Space
Exploration Agency, complete with its Space-a-Roo mascot. The ship’s
crack pilots have also added an unofficial (though tacitly tolerated
by the High Command) personal touch to the hull – a colorful
painting of a smiling woman and the phrase “Hot Rods of God”, in
honor of similar World War II ornaments which once decorated the
fighters and bombers of famed Aussie flying aces, such as Grp. Capt.
Keith Hampshire or Wg. Cmdr. Bobby Gibbes.
