MH-86 "Little Bird" VTOL

Post by RoC77 » Tue Mar 10, 2009 4:11 pm

One of Darkearth's tools, when the need for fast insertion or extraction of troops or light support, the Little Bird can is more than capable to fit that need. Being able to carry half a dozen personnel, this craft when used properly can change the outcome of any skirmish. And moderately armed, it can provide support against most armored threats. But, she is lightly armored to provide the speed needed to be effective.

THE PEACH LEADER IS FORMING ANOTHER ARMY YAYAYAYAYAYAY

WILL THIS MEAN A FORUM BATTLE BETWEEN BOTH ARMIES?

Also, if they're big enough and they're divided into platoons and such, you could divide the armies and give them to different players, all of them playing for their team and such.

WILL IT BE LIKE THIS????? :D :D :D :D

Well, the 45th is going to has a Light infantry divison with 24 soldiers w/anti armor weapons & light vehicles with crews. And an Armored division with 24 troopers(rifles only) plus the vehicles & crews.

The Darkearth security forces will only have 24 mercs, with a mix of vehicles & crews.

And I am still making a couple more groups, so it will be pretty big fight.

I'm also trying to work on some building's & landscape, but I still have a lot of building & ordering to do. We'll see what I end up with in the end.




Oh, and yes, there are actually 2 more guys on the bird, they are seated in the center behind the pilot(you can see one of them in the first photo) and between the side openings.....

I like it for the most part. The only major improvement I can think of is putting the engines on pylons so they extend out from the hull a bit more -- gives it a more VTOL-ish look. Nice work!

It can take weeks. Months. Years. As long as it is done, doesn't matter when.

I still think it would look better with the engines on pylons. For starters, the greater width would make it look more like the real helicopter in the first photo.

engines on pylons don't work I've tried it on a few mocs but it fails.
