I'm gonna drop this off and let everybody RAGE! Since I'm part of new clan, [KNMSU], I decided to go ahead and actually create a kanmusu based on the ship of my choice! My particular ship? Despite the fact that I am a huge fan of aircraft carriers, I went for something that everyone knows as home-grown American goodness, famous for its hauntings up in Massachusetts! Everyone, meet CA-139, the USS SALEM! The USS Salem is a Des Moines-class cruiser, one of only three ships completed in her class, the others being the USS Des Moines we all know and love, and the USS Newport News. She was equipped with 9x3 autoloading 8-inch guns, giving her massive firepower for an all-gun cruiser, and a maximum firing range of 27 kilometers at full elevation, along with secondary batteries of x12 5-inch, 38-caliber guns, x24 3-inch, 50-caliber guns which could double as anti-aircraft weapons, and then x24 20mm anti-aircraft mounts. I chose the witch motif and the ghastly mounting of her ship equipment, save her bridge and her core equipment, due in part to her nature as one of the most haunted (verified by multiple sources) ships still around, and that her namesake was home to the Salem Witch Trials during the late 17th century. Most other Kanmusu tend to have their equipment attached by servo arms and hydraulics to the main body of their core, but I opted for something different to give her a spookier feel. The skirt was awesome to draw. I love the tattered ruffles. The bolero was a nice touch and something underused imho. LET THE RAGE BEGIN! And I might show the USS Atlanta and USS Cleveland I've sketched out as well.
So I didn't know where else to post this, so why not here? While I was browsing the web, came across this forum from 2014 called "Create a Kanmusu" and it had a prompt where you fill in whatever information you want to put in. I think I've seen this topic come up before but I can't seem to find it why not make a new topic. So I created a Kanmusu for my best and favorite ship: North Carolina So without further ado...(It's not perfect but hey I had fun) North Carolina Introduction: Hey! I'm Fast Battleship North Carolina, nameship of the amazing North Carolina class. You think you can handle me? Library Intro: Hey! I'm North Carolina, the first fast battleship built in the USA. I spent most of the time escorting my good friend Enterprise, but don't be fooled, I can still pack a punch! Would you like to see? Secretary (1): Yes, Admiral? Secretary (2): Huh? Sorry Admiral, but that submarine seems familiar. Secretary (3): Hey! I'm a showboat, not a "touch"-boat! Secretary (idle): Huh, it's so peaceful here. Oh, Saratoga! Iowa! wait up! Secretary (kai): My guns are not the only thing that is amazing. I can handle anything that comes my way! Especially with these babies. Secretary (married): Are you stressed, Admiral? ufufu- How about I show you some southern hospitality- Wedding: Admiral? Humph, I'm always ready for battle- huh? Is...is that for me? *gasp* I'm so happy! Thank you! Joining a fleet: North Carolina, ready for battle! Equipment (1): Yes! Those carriers have no chance now! Equipment (2): I hope this catches those pesky subs Equipment (3): Alright! Supply: Nice! Now I can get back to action. Docking (Minor damage): Hmph, those stupid planes can really get on my nerves. Docking (Moderate damage): *sigh* Torpedoes are no joke, huh? Start a Sortie: North Carolina, sortieing! Battle start: Fleet, prepare for battle! Air battle: Attack: Main Battery Gunners, Take aim, FIIIIREE!!! Night Battle: Hehehe, Let's finish them off! MVP: Me? Humph, of course, I am. There no match for my speed and power. Minor Damaged (1): HA! Is that all you got. Minor Damaged (2): Repair teams do your work. Moderately Damaged: *scream* *exhale* Damn you...DAMN YOU ALL!! Sunk: N-no, it wasn't supposed to be like this...Enterprise...Saratoga...go on...without...me... Notes: Library Intro: Along with having the first triple barreled 16-inch guns, she also had a good array AA and secondary guns in her time. Secretary (2): She's referring to I-19, who torpedoed NC while escorting USS Wasp, causing her to be out of action for a while. Secretary (3): While she was built, she would often go out on test runs in the Atlantic from her dock in New York, giving her the name Showboat. She would also go on to show her amazing battle abilities, proving her name. Secretary (Kai): These "babies" is referring to when she was refitted in 1942. She was equipped with a new, advanced radar gear and fire control system with an addition to more AA guns. Secretary (married): ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Appearance NC wears a navy blue long skirt and a grey buttoned-up shirt (reminiscent to her Ms 22 camo) and wears a neck brace mimicking her bridge (Similar to Nagato & Mutsu). Her hair is dark brown and in a loose ponytail. Her eyes are brown. She wears a hat that mimics the top of her mast. Her rigging consists of the two halves of the bow on her sides with all 3 guns on the two halves. The back of the ship holds her 2 smokestacks (and have AA guns attached in her Kai form). She wears a belt that has her two plane launchers attached to her sides. Based [loosley] on this picture Personality: She has a cocky attitude due to being the most advanced ship in the Navy when she was built. However, shortly after she was completed 2 more classes of ships were built, including Iowa, that was more advanced. Despite this, she still keeps her attitude, especially when she's modernized. Even though she wasn't the most advanced and powerful ship in the fleet, she can still go toe-to-toe with even her more powerful opponents. She often boasts about her Main battery guns, but they were only used for onshore bombardment and nothing else, unlike her sister Washington. Here's the prompt: Have Fun!! -Cpt. Delta
