Transport equivalent for ironclads

What would you like to see in Freeciv? Do you have a good idea what should be improved or how?

Re getting graphics for all tilesets, I've created a wiki page to try to track and progress this; see new thread.

I tried myself with a dive bomber (tactical bomber) by using the fighter and make some modifications. Freeciv material?

And maybe somebody can form this into a proper Zeppelin... :D In any case its a beta and actually a picture. Though if you pixel it enough it looks like an amplio unit. The "NAVY" labeling has to be erased if someone wants to continue it...

Another topic: The rudder has for the standard fighter and bomber the colour red. I gave the tactical bomber a green colour since I thought its ground troop support. We could try to introduce a colour nomenclature for the different classes that would also apply for chopters.

For example:

Blue = Transport
Green = Attack aircraft/helicopter
Red = Bomber (strategic)
Yellow = Figther

Took one of GriffonSpade units and took the arch from another unit, so this crossbower came out...

As well as this anti aircraft gun from the howitzer unit...
