Dogfight by OmeN2501 Dogfight by OmeN2501
"It was the third year of Dominons War, and we were all tired. So when we left our warp bubble 2 Megaklicks from 47 Ursae Majoris C, we didn't waste our time. MI's reports looked promising: the target planet was inahbited by civilization apparently on quite low tech level. You know, no space fleet or orbital defence stations, no nuke-powered battle platforms, poor Mom Earth-worshipping dum-arses...

Agricultural society, I mean.

It was almost too good to be true.

At 2040 hours Commander commenced attack on their biggest city. Heavy Colonial Fleet Battlegroup: 40 shuttles with infantry, 12 CAS squadrons, 4 carriers, a dozens of support vessels. Commander thought she was smart, cause MI folks told her the farmers down below would have some kind of religious festival that night. Well, they had. And our visit really pissed them off.

53 minutes later, our last Kiev class carrier hit the ground and exploded. 75% of our close air support crafts were also destroyed, and lucky survivors had to pull back. But the worst thing was, it took just three people to wipe out our troops. We dubbed them 'priests' afterwards, cause of - you know, divine powers they used against us or something - but we haven't really grasp their position and role in the farmers' society.
Yeah, divine powers. Don't laugh. One pilot rescued by Medivac boys told us how his plane was ripped in half by flying girl. Other reports mentioned her and her friends, hovering over our carrier - just before it's armour was penetrated and cooling system damaged by, as we were told, meteor shower that came from nowhere!
That night we've learned our lesson. I learned it pretty well... ."

M-Sgt. Jack Hartman, A Troop 4/12 Cav, 3rd Colonial Marine Division.

This one is incredible. Dogfight by ~OmeN2501 is both incredibly detailed and totally epic, just savour it. ( Suggested by LilithLairPoetry and Featured by alyn )

dude, i just want to tell you that i came across your "Dogfight" piece a fair few years ago and loved it. It was my desktop wallpaper for sometime until a very long and boring story happened that made me lose EVERYTHING on my computer. 
I could never find your art again but the image of that exploding plane stuck with me and tonight i have finally found it.
I want to thank you for your work. It has truly inspired me and continues to stun.
Keep it up.

Found my way here from listening to trailer music. Now I'm compelled to make a story. Mind if I show you what I've come up with in the next few days or so? I really like this picture and the story behind it. I even have a key dialog scene playing in my head right now.

Then, the High Admiral of the Fleet turned to face his fellow Admirals.
   "Ladies and Gentlemen, we're going to war."
   "But, with all due respe-"
   The High Admiral raised his hand to silence her. "We are not out gunned, nor outmatched. We have our own secret arsenal."

Love this picture. Found it about a year ago but didn't have any info with it. Great stuff. I'm doing a book with Marines and this inspired a fight scene. Thanks.
