The Official Flag of Arzami, presented to you!


#6

Ah memories… of living as a soldier in somalia… love the flag. Your history sounds like The French Foriegn Legion had quite the involvement in Arzami in the early years


#7

Arzami should have made friends with communist Russia in 84, instead of capitalist pig America! Russia have tasty borsh and fun time with bear! Glory to communism, comrades.


#8

Arzami should have sided with the communists. The Democratic Socialist Republic of Anikatia would have been glad to gain another car building ally. :wink:

On that note I realise I probably should have created a page like this instead of separate pages for each of my brands but alas. You’ve got an interesting nation here.


#9

After the collapse of the national bank, Car Production in Arzami was halted until the economy returned to a normal level. This would not be until 1957.

Expect a few more cars more often, as I can make some time for this stuff now.

Jumping forward to 2016, Thought I’d share what Arzami’s Police Force is made up of.

#Arzami PD

  • 750 Komodo Phyton Fighters
  • 645 Cavallera Kunai RS Hatchbacks
  • 80 Dimension Symmetry Premium 3.1
  • 1 Dimension Paradox 6 XY
  • 3 Saminda C2k GT (On Order, expected delivery early-mid 2017)
  • 2 KHT Mistral S350
  • 1 KHT Augusta
  • 25 Erin Nardella X
    (To be updated with some modern cars from my own companies)

Spread of How Cars are used

  • Phytons and Kunai’s are used for general Patrol
  • Nardella’s are used for Interception
  • Symmetry’s are used for Specified Patrol, and Investigations
  • All other cars are show cars, or used sparingly.

So, bailing on the year-by-year shit, let’s look at the

#1965 Émeraude Artisanat Herald 1

The Herald was the first step toward what Émeraude was meant to be. Design began in 1963, with the intent to become a sign of things to come for Émeraude. The name of the concept idea, was MRI-1 (Material Race Idea One), and was eventually changed to Herald, named after the Designer, Marion Herald, as she passed just months after the initial concept was finished.

The Idea was something that an everyman could take to a race-track, and use without too much issue. That idea expanded, until an engineer took 5 of the MRI-1 concepts, took them to Émeraude Raceway, and had a field day. This engineer was promptly fired, and The Herald entered production a few weeks later.

The Arzami Government Then decided to instate a national racing league using the Heralds. 20 were supplied to the Series, and 10 races were run in 1966, with 8 street races, and 2 races at Émeraude Raceway. This series would funnel drivers from Arzami into international race events, and series, before it was shutdown in 1973.

The engine used in the Herald RG-T would be a 2.6L V8 making 172hp, and within a 1000kg frame, would allow the Herald to get to a top speed of 223km/h. The Herald would set a laptime around the original Émeraude Raceway (Info to come) of 2:17.79



#12

Well, I can’t wait to see the Émeraude Raceway :stuck_out_tongue: (or an Arzami GT championship for that matters).

So, how much $$$?


#13

35,000 (Using modern Money) but Restored versions go for above 100k each.


#14

You shouldnt’ for continuity sake. Much easier to lose track of what’s what and make choices that do not fit into company lore.

In any case, the car looks pretty good, but we don’t get any performance stats. Also a run on a custom track is cool and all, but we need the track to benchmarked by a number of cars before we get to know what sort of track it is, and what time is good on it.

#Émeraude Raceway (1960-2010)

The Original Émeraude Raceway, a 3.6km track, 5km east of the 2nd largest Arzami City, Émeraude. The First plans were lay out in 1958, with the Formation of Émeraude Artisanat. It was slated as the testing ground for EA cars, and for a national racing circuit, as the most advanced in the Country.

This track is a good test of how a car handles, and can take various speed corners. One very interesting point about the track, is the cross-over from turn 9 through to turn 14. It is the only Arzamin track to do such, with the eastern section going above the northern.


Here is the Track, Enjoy.

#Emeraude 1981 Garnet Concept.

Designed and built within the span of 3 months, the Garnet was the show piece of the Emeraude stand at Geneva that year. With a 6L V12, and AWD, the Garnet was seen as a future basis for an Emeraude Rally, or Street, car.

The Unorthodox design was a central idea in creating the Garnet, who’s name was thought of only 12 hours before it’s presentation. Many slated the car for the garish looks, while other praised it. This didn’t have an effect on Emeraude, who pushed out a road model by mid '84. There was no change between this and the road model (Hence why I’m only posting about the Concept.)

Both models would have 485hp and only around 700 of the Garnets were made before production was cut in 1986.
