IDW003 Steampunk Anti-Airship Pirate Harpoon
Topic: Steampunk Anti-Airship Pirate Harpoon.
Description: During the age of steam punk; Airships and blimps were used to travel the skies. Many Airships were used as trade vessels. Pirates developed Anti-Airship harpoon that would allow pirates to anchor an airship and either climb up and/or pull the ship to ground level.
These Anti-Airship were ground based and extremely effective against airships. All though they cause massive destruction, the A-Aship guns can easily be built on top of an urban rooftop, and are usually camouflaged effectively.
Deadline: Nov 19th Midnight'ish

So its a combination of steam and mechanical engines with a gothic design in an early "Metropolis" futuristic age. Interesting....

How can this thing be some sort of harpoon that allows pirates to board/pull down a ship, which is seems like an idea for a non-lethal weapon, yet it causes massive destruction?

I would imagine it simply does a lot of damage on its way in, and anchors on the airship once it's stopped, say by the internal structure or maybe it goes straight through the ship and anchors on the side opposite it's entry. In any case, the Airship is left mostly intact, and the pirates can then pull it down/climb in.
That's the way I understood. The Airship will obviously need to be able to handle a heafty impact without being blown apart.. something I'll be taking in mind as I design.
