DA3: RN-79 "Insurgent" Torpedo Boat
"I got my swim trunks and my flippy-floppies!"
About this creation
Set course for LIBERATION!




This is the RN-79 "Insurgent" Stealth Torpedo Boat. It is classified as a battleship destroyer but can also be used for recon missions due to its very minimal radar signature.




This was by far the biggest challenge in DA3. I've never built water craft before so it was a steep learning curve.




The Insurgent is armed with 4 torpedoes and a dual barrel 75mm machinegun turret near the bow of the ship.




1. Your PT Boat must be minifig scale with a minimum length of 30 studs. All other dimensions to be decided by the player.


2. Your PT Boat must include a crew of 4 (Captain, Gunner, Engineer, Seaman). The type of minifig is left up to the player: alien, undead, robot, human, etc. but each character must be identified in the write-up for your MOC.


3. Your PT Boat must be shown in water, the design or style of water to be decided by the player.


4. Your PT Boat must feature at minimum of 4 torpedo tubes and at least one of the tubes must be shown firing a torpedo. It must also include a secondary weapon of the player's choice.




"I'm on a boat!"














Meet the crew! From left to right is Captain Dale, Engineer/Helmsman Porter, Gunner Bradley, and Seaman Bob. Seaman Bob has been in a few sailing mishaps.














Please excuse my poor attempt at natural-looking Lego water. Other builders have far more effective methods, but this is what I had.








Fire torpedoes!






















And now, dear viewer, we have reached the end of this posting. I humbly ask for a 5 star rating on this MOC to raise it's military power. Only YOU, citizen, can make that call. A vote for this MOC is a vote for freedom against tyranny.




The war game, Decisive Action 3: Beyond Thunderdome is currently underway. If you would be so inclined, please leave reviews on these MOCs to raise their effectiveness in the game. The Colonial Liberation Corps thanks you for your support of the cause for freedom.

Quoting Finn Feldmann Very cool Torpedo boat. It really reminds me of the Interstellar Ranger, just cooler looking with all its armaments.
Thank you Finn!

Quoting Nick Barrett I'm loving the homogenous and stylish look of your fleet, reminds me of the builds Pico did for DA2. They were MILPO dreadnoughts as well... I'd wish you luck but you won't need it.
Thank you Nick! I appreciate the compliments! Good luck out there!

Quoting Alexander Lutz Looks like a fun war (oxymoron?) MOCs are looking great, although I personally do too much to enter this. I might however, build somethings that could be considered for the categories if you're interested. I'm following along, keep it up!

Quoting Clayton Marchetti This is really awesome! I like the stealth angle. Great job on the torpedo firing. I like the trans blue tube for the prop wake. Most impressive
Thank you very much, Clayton! Yeah that blue tube was the engine array from one of many iterations of Lego's official Millennium Falcon. I'm glad you like it!

Quoting Werewolff Studios I can only imagine the pain at designing those torpedo tubes! Still, this is some awesome work mate (along with everything else) and for someone who doesn't design water craft, you've certainly blown this one out of the water!

Quoting P. Andrei I'm with Mark on this, your best so far or at least on par with the APC. Looks mean and fast. I'm repeating myself, but the flag works so well to break the b0ring grey.
Thank you very much. I purposely go with greys ands black to make the flag stands out. Thank you for noticing!

Quoting Mark B. I had a feeling this would be coming very soon. Great design that is entirely consistent with your other categories. For a second, I was wondering where the torpedoes were, then I saw them tucked away in those very slick internal tubes. I think this may be my favorite of all of your DA3 builds. The lines are so clean. It almost looks like a hydrofoil racer.
Thank you, Mark. Based on the plethora of amazing naval vessels you've built that is truly high praise. It was one of my biggest building challenges so I'm glad you like it. It was hard to design something that looked just futuristic enough.
