The third image for the Fortress Earth series by Travis Hightower: [link]
This one shows a US AWAC diving hard to avoid 2 alien interceptors that have already managed to blow out one of it's engines, it's trying to survive just long enough so that some F14's can come in and help.

unfrigginbeleivable O_O this so AMAZING! makes me want to play Ace Combat 5 now XD

having a blown engine, lowered flaps and (for all intensive purposes for something that size) flying at 0 altitude, i can only imagine the sirens, terrain/altitude and hostile contact warnings that are screaming in the cockpit. it has lost what little maneuverability it had by being damaged and at such low altitude... if this were a snapshot of events, immediately after this was taken the AWACS would have probably been obliterated... :/

Pretty much. But Because Duke intervenes, the pilot is able to put it in the water - though, not very gently. But are the survivors safe yet? Adam is working on what happens next. Be sure to check out the link in the description for more!

This is reminding me of situations playing Xenonauts when UFO interceptors descend while a transport chinook is out and the interceptors are all re-fueling. =P

Except in this case the interceptors are quite impotent against their adversary anyway lol. But I'm going to have to check out Xenonauts! I like when things make connections in peoples minds...in this case, Adam did all the work on yours lol.

Xenonauts is in alpha, it is a traditional remake of the XCOM series and the air battles are controllable like an RTS mini-game. Your jets start out competent at fighting the aliens, only because thee aliens have to adapt their ships to earth's atmosphere; I've had some fighters destroyed in a single hit on normal difficulty once they start getting their good stuff out. =P

Plus they start dropping their own interceptors to hunt for your stuff (to get resources and tech you have to send out chinooks with soldiers to alien crash sites and bases).

The two are an interesting study, the new Xcom game is very streamlined which allows someone to jump in and play, there are no 100 turn nightmares; which can be seen as a letdown as that generated all the tension the original series had. Aliens could snipe you from the fog of war and you'd never see them, in the new XCOM aliens must make their presence known through a cut scene before they can attack you; minus the long range sectopod bombardment.
So, the best part about the two games is that they are two different experiences, win win!

Simply stunning work, and an AWACS never looked so mighty lol. Its a cumbersome beast to fly, and the crew is hanging on for dear life. 24 souls on board at least, and its the main protagonist that is on his way to help. But what will he be able to do with an unarmed F-15?

I love how it looks like this is a movie, with splash effect on the camera and everything. I kind of wish I had written it like this to progressively get stormier and stormier as the battle goes on... Its in the little details like that how artists can compliment each other.
