We're getting into the swing of our South American project for Imperial Skies – redesigning the existing fleets and creating new ones for all ten nations in the continent.

The largest of the countries, Brazil, has had a complete makeover. It now has a total of twelve different models in the fleet, including four brand-new ones, ranging from the Timbira-class Torpedo Sloop at the smaller end of the scale up to the imposing Rei Andreas-class battleship.

Rei Andreas Battleship

The new ships are the aforementioned Rei Andreas and Timbira, the Amazonas Light Armored Cruiser, and the Japura destroyer. The Brazilians also get a second fleet pack and a torpedo flotilla pack. Most of the ships are metal, with the exception of the resin-hulled Sao Paolo and Rei Andreas.

Sao Paulo Batllecruiser

The first all-new fleet is Ecuador. When we were initially assessing the countries to determine the size of their air fleets, Ecuador ranked quite low, coming in just above Paraguay. As a result, the largest class are the Tunguruhua heavy cruisers, supported by a number of smaller craft.

The Ecuadorian airships are all armored dirigibles, with their self-sealing gasbags supplemented by small Loewe Graviton Engines for additional lift. Only the Tunguruhua class have rotating turrets, with casemate guns on other ships plus flotillas of torpedo-armed small craft. Vessels use the prefix DAE – Dirigivel de la Armada del Ecuador.
