S.S. Winona is Sarendala's answer to the growing number of flying vehicles in Decisive Action 2.0, and is the first vehicle designed for air combat by Saredalan aviaton engineers.
The front, with 4 40-mm antiaircraft cannon in separate turrets.
4 40-mm antiaircraft guns in turrets on the top, as well.
2 152-mm howitzers, for ground/building bombardment. There are 2 more on the opposite side, as well.

There are 40-mm antiaircraft guns in turrets on the left and right of the gondola.
Bomb bay in the gondola, with 24 500-lb bombs. Can also carry incendiary bombs, a ground-penetrating bomb, or a nuclear bomb.
Winona has variable-pitch rotors, allowing for speedy ascension....
or ascending while moving forward. This removes the necessity of elevators.
Winona can even come close to hovering, which is is useful when engaging ground targets.
The hangar has a wind sock, a radar dish, and an alignment assistant device on the roof.
The front of the hangar has an office, an anchor chain and a building to hold one end of the anchor chain.
The back has a large, three-story building that functions as an infirmary, mess hall, and garage for the small vehicles (segways, bikes, scooters) used for getting around the hangar quickly.
There is another anchor chain and building for holding the other end.

I can hear you asking, "Why didn't you use the same technique to fill out the front of the Airship that you did for the back?"
Well, I ran out of 3x2 sloped bricks. I also used almost all of the 2x2 orange tiles from PAB Inc.'s shipment.
I'm also not very good at building gentle curves like those on the ends of a blimp; this is my first time attempting this.
That's great stuff, buddy! I really liked the technique used for the propellers, where they can turn 90°, facing the ground to a vertical takeoff. Neat Hangar, and creative weapon distribution also! I would only be a little critic about the colors, not that orange and blue are a bad combo, it just feels a little bit messed with the black parts on the tips. Other than it's awesome! keep it up the great work!
