Scythe Lore[edit | edit source]
"Mankind has long been confined to travel by land and sea, but a new technology has emerged from the greatest minds in Eastern Europa: airships. These steam-driven behemoths sail freely across the sky, aiding their empire’s expansion through innovation and confrontation." - The Wind Gambit Rulebook, Backstory
Introduced in The Wind Gambit expansion; Airships served as a form of combat support, transportation, and logistics to mechs and workers being able to carry either or resources and engage in conflict potentially with other Airships or Mechs. All nations had at least one Airship (including Fenris and The Factory) as depicted in artwork by Jakub Różalski and The Rise Of Fenris expansion.
Iron Harvest Lore[edit | edit source]
Airships are not said to explicitly exist in the arsenal of any country in Iron Harvest by comparison, however Heinrich Steinmetz develops an inflatable Airship (erroneously called a blimp) which he uses to escape from Kolno and is able to carry many escaping civilians on with no danger though it is later shot down by forces loyal to Lev Aleksey Zubov
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In Scythe, Airships are developed sometime after the Great War, with their use being described as part of a shift in geopolitical thinking by the nations of Europe no longer believing any one of them can truly dominate the other.
- In Iron Harvest, Airships are treated as a brand new technology having been developed by Heinrich in secret and the only known prototype destroyed.
