Heavy Helicopter Gunship by scifieart10000
Heavy Helicopter Gunship
I wanted this to have the look of a large civil use skycrane like helicopter that was modified for combat use. Hence the patchwork of segmented armor panels, and the Skycrane like landing gear configuration. As it is excessively large and it's crew poorly protected it would favor providing long range missile support to ground troops, to close range strafing. To prevent it from relying to much on ground troops for targeting info, it has twin booms protruding from the tail section to carry, unarmed scout drones to provide accurate targeting data. it would of course be extremely vulnerable to ground based missiles, as well as attacks from fixed wing aircraft, so it would be useless in anything but a supporting role.
It should also be noted that while I used helicopter in the description, it is in fact a  Gyrodyne. which is different in that as opposed to a helicopter the blades aren't driven by the central shaft, thy are driven by tiny jet engines on the tips of the rotor blades. In this case, six of them. this almost completely negates the "P factor" torque, that has to be countered by the tail rotor on a normal helicopter, which is why it has no tail rotor, or second coaxial rotor.

Recon SSTO
Medium sized lightly armed ship carrying nothing but surveillance equipment. would serve as a mobile drone command unit. the small cargo bay under cockpit could carry other equipment if needed

I'm alright, always trying to get better at what I do, but never, There. Wherever there is.  I don't post things often, usually bi  or tri annually, and usually only if the thing is the latest "Best i can do" in any particular area. So while i draw or make something every day, only 5 percent gets on here, but I digress.  I don't think you've messaged me before. I know who you are though, your the admin of that Evangelion inspired group and I believe you added one of my most popular pieces, the orange startanker, to your group, but that was two years ago.

Did you at one point, have an matte/illustration up of a large iron/brass airship with large red cross insignia, belching smoke, over a desert near a large metal wall, with a low sun on the horizon? 

I liked that piece quite alot, and have been troubled recently as I cannot find it again, and I believe you where the artist that had made it
