C258 – The First Battleship
Whiz, whiz, whiz.
Several black figures instantly descended, so fast that it was impossible to see them clearly.
A few kilometers away, in the area where the soldiers gathered, the rumbling and thick smoke instantly covered their field of vision.
The houses on both sides of the street collapsed in the black smoke at the same time.
The soldiers were like pieces of paper, instantly torn apart like rotten wood.
Because of the speed, these people did not know that they had been attacked even after they died.
An old lady standing dozens of meters away from the explosion only heard a boom, and then she felt a wave of air sweep onto her body.
She stood there in a daze for a few seconds, until the thick smoke had already rushed in front of her.
Only then did she cry out in alarm and take a few steps back.
Many passers-by looked at this scene in a daze.
Only when the smoke slowly dissipated did they see the scene of it completely turning into ruins.
There was a small pit on the ground, full of broken limbs, just looking at it was very terrifying.
“Just what is this…”
A lot of sounds could be heard.
At a place two kilometers away from the port… The grenades thrown by the Bullet Insect looked like rain.
They were concentrated in places where the soldiers were more concentrated.
More and more insects were still running towards the belly of the city, and at the port that was not considered large.
The ships took turns to dock one after another.
The Wind God Winged Insect in the sky could clearly see the situation on the battlefield.
To Lo Ya, This attack in reality was like a game of controlling a battle perspective.
The enemy’s seven defensive arrays were completely destroyed in less than 15 minutes, until the first hour of the battle.
With the combined efforts of the artillery and the land legions, the enemy had lost more than 3000 men.
Most of the cities had fallen into Lo Ya’s hands.
The actual investment for this attack was only 5,000 insects.
After these ships transported the insects, they would immediately return and take another batch of 5,000 insects.
On the other side, about 100 ships were boarding 1,500 Sickle Insect.
They would disembark from another city that was not heavily guarded in the north and open up the second battlefield.
Of course, there was no need to pay too much attention to the war in this kind of place.
Just like when they attacked Trio and the Kingdom of White, this continent’s attack speed would also be quite fast.
A few days ago, the attack might have been slow due to the lack of main forces, but as more and more troops crossed the ocean, In the end, the two countries on this continent would become the Insect Girl Clan.
In the next few days, more troublesome problems would appear on the sea in the south.
After the elemental sprite devoured tens of thousands of corrosive bugs, the empire’s Iron-armored Ship would head towards Insect Girl Clan’s territory.
Facing this situation, Lo Ya was forced to release another few hundred thousand Corrosive Beetle to buy more time.
At the same time, she considered a useful method to deal with the Iron-armored Ship.
Later on, she mixed the Explosive Beetle into the Corrosive Beetle.
When the elemental sprite swallowed them, it would immediately experience the terror of an explosion.
An explosion would only cause the elemental fairies to become unstable.
However, after a few consecutive explosions, they would most likely turn into elemental energy and die.
After the effects were achieved, Lo Ya used various methods.
From within the mainland, she transferred 1 million Explosive Beetle over.
Because the transportation power was limited, more bugs relied on the two Shooting Reproductive Insect in the island area to produce.
The appearance of these Explosive Beetle was similar to the Corrosive Beetle.
It was very difficult to distinguish between an elemental sprite and a human with the naked eye.
When the twenty thousand that were temporarily delayed were thrown into the sea, some of the elemental fairies immediately suffered a huge loss.
The several hundred thousand Corrosive Beetle that had returned became cannon fodder to stall for time.
They tried to use numbers to stall for more and more glowing spheres.
As for the Iron-armored Ship that the Empire had only been out at sea for half a day, it had also slowed down in order to be safe.
Later on, the 1,000 Corrosive Beetle that were surrounded by thousands of Explosive Beetle broke through the elemental sprite’s blockade and self-destructed near an Iron-armored Ship, successfully polluting a large area of water.
Because the corrosion density was too high, and it lasted for a long time, it still managed to wear down a layer of the Iron-armored Ship’s skin.
The empire changed the steel plate in time, but this also bought Insect Girl Clan more time.
Empire of Insect Girl Calendar Year 1, 5th, Apr.
After a long period of hard work, the battleship bug finally produced its first cannon through gene integration.
It had a diameter of 130 millimeters, with a maximum range of 20 kilometers.
Its penetrating ability was not easy to calculate.
Because the outer shells of battleships in this era were strengthened by Magic, even if it had the ability to penetrate armor of 200 millimeters, it would still be difficult to calculate.
In the end, it might not be able to penetrate it even if it was 150 millimeters.
In addition, the cannonballs were strengthened by Magic, which made it very difficult for Lo Ya to calculate the combat strength of both sides.
No matter what, the shooting range had already reached the standard of World War II’s cannon with the same caliber.
The power was estimated to not be much weaker.
In comparison, the first generation Iron-armored Ship cannon on the Empire’s side was even more powerful.
But the shooting range was not that far.
However, Lo Ya felt that it might only be in these two months.
After the enemy’s second generation warship was put into use, The first generation would undergo modification.
At that time, it would not be new for it to be upgraded to the current level of Insect Girl Clan.
When the first warship cannon was formed, the fused battleship insects began to manufacture multiple-caliber main armament.
On the other hand, they also began to evolve to a larger caliber and stronger power.
In the process, they had to arrange genes countless times.
After secreting a large amount of metal, the final product was 400 mm and above.
In other words, it reached the standard of a battleship in World War II.
“If I can have the power of the Yamato, that would be awesome.”
In this era where the aviation Strength was not strong, the damage caused by airplanes to the navy was limited.
The Empire and himself did not have any torpedo technology, so the current naval battle was a fair fight.
Lo Ya had already consciously influenced the Electric Shock Octopus, letting them try to evolve.
She wanted to see if she could evolve into the biggest detonator room in her body.
At that time, these octopuses with explosive attacks and mobility would become the strongest killers in naval warfare.
The most terrifying submarine and self-destructive torpedo.
The second battleship insect was currently growing through eating food, and the cycle was longer, possibly a few months.
In other aspects, Lo Ya let a small portion of the Battleship Insect fuse into a relatively smaller Iron-armored Ship as a frigate.
Apart from that, there was also a ship the size of a cruiser that focused on reducing defense and speeding up the cruise.
Although the speed of fusing with the ship was fast, it required a lot of Battleship Insect.
Although the Battleship Insect did not need to be consumed to grow, it would take a very long time.
It could be seen that even the Insect Girl Clan finally understood the difficulty of building the navy.
The current production speed definitely could not catch up to the Empire’s.
The Insect Girl Clan’s advantage was its index growth.
As long as there were resources, the construction of a huge fleet would only be a matter of a short period of time.
Now, the newly born Battleship Insect tail was all developing in the direction of battleships.
It was estimated to take two months.
Calculating carefully, there would be a total of eight battleships appearing (including the first one).
And outside of the tail, all the remaining ships above level 2 would fuse into 2800 tons of standard drainage frigate.
If all the surviving Battleship Insect were fused, it could be combined into eight ships.
With such a number, he could already compete with the enemy’s Iron-armored Ship.
The Insect Girl Clan could be considered to be on par with the empire.
