A long overdue update of the second Zoid I ever designed, the Blue Sovereign is a huge transport Zoid capable of underwater, surface, air and (gasp!) interplanetary travel. Although a transporter, the Sovereign is well defended. The most notable are the verging-on-excessive three-barrelled cannons situated on the top deck and the broadsides along the 'seam' of the Zoid.
Aerial Zoids are launched off the dual runways at the front, and larger birds can take-off and land from the hangar/pad thing in front of the dorsal fin. The dorsal tower is a two-deck command centre and bridge. Land/sea zoids can be deployed from the mouth and another ramp extends out the back. The huge main engine cluster provides thrust and when required can punt the whale Zoid into space. The Zoid is capable of vertical take off and landing - the pectoral fins swivel down, as do the six separate engine pods to the sides of the main engine cluster.
The Blue Sovereign also has a whole host of support Zoids, more on those to come! I'll also be doing some close ups and maybe even some battle scenes when I'm totally sure I'm happy with the design. Modelled and rendered in the NX CAD package. This project was originally just meant as an update of an earlier Zoid (the Blue Emperor) but it quickly became its own thing.
