Impressive!
I highly doubt that the slightly loose fitting physics proxy / bounding box of the tonk + ship would allow for such highly packed parking in game, and ofc you won't be able to lock down the ones on the outside, but still, looks awesome!
I really do think that eventually they'll impose a constraint on these pads, so that an extra small pad will only gravitationally hold only one extra small ship... So things will be fine when parked, but try and go into quantum with two things on your pad, and you'll be disappointed to find a single damaged thing on the other side. Otherwise the shenanigans will be legendary.

Wait a minute... with 18 tonks on the top side... what kind of Alpha Strike DPS does this thing have?

EDIT - erkul says the Tonk has 18,580 Alpha... times that by 18 and you have 334,440 Alpha... You could one-shot an M2, and two-shot a Hammerhead...

Y'know, there are 24 Tonks in the pic, and it's a bit flimsy but if you open the hangar doors as well, you can probably have an additional 12, though at that point it's a very specific direction you can do the Alpha strike against, also let's use cannons on the Gun Turret as well, just to make the biggest Boom with most penetration should that be an issue, so that's 18940 alpha per Tonk. It could be up to 681840 alpha strike. Nevermind hammerhead, you'll knock out 890 Jump with the 3rd salvo!

Knew there was a reason I was in TEST!

I know exactly what you've been wondering because I've been wondering it too. Exactly how many tonks can fit on the Liberator?

Answer is 39.

I was going to say they are a little tight but I've loaded rail cars with armored vehicles when I was with the Big Red One.

Here is part of a brigade loaded up on a RO-RO ship heading back stateside from Germany. Your images have them a little tight, but not alot tight. original.jpgmax1200.jpg.

These images are what wet dreams are made of. The only thing that would make it more awesome is for the front row and last row to have their turrets facing out board to engage enemy.

Despite being Stevetank, I have never touched a real tank. I need to visit a tank museum one day. I watch too many YouTube videos on them as it is.
