heavy carrier launched STOL gunship/bomber by scifieart10000 heavy carrier launched STOL gunship/bomber by scifieart10000
A 747 sized gunship. while not vtol capable, by redirecting the main engine exhaust slightly downwards and using two downward facing turbines up front, it would be able to preform strafing runs at lower speeds if needed, as well as turn very rapidly. The main advantage though would be that it could operate from smaller airstrips.

weaponry includes forward 30mm twin turret x2
2x fixed forward fireing 30mm Gatling guns, in the side vents above the forward landing gear
lower 30mm single turret
twin forward firing 70mm canons
single forward firing laser for missle defense
and 32 missiles of varying types on the wings and booms
also features rear cargo door for parachute drops or just cargo
it obviously would not carry a full load of bombs and also cargo or passengers

very nice looking design...of course a plane that big...I can see the deck boss cussing as a pilot blows another aircraft over board with a misdirected jetwash.

if you wanted to make it a gunship, i suggest mounting the cannons so that they fire out the side of the aircraft like the AC-130 Spectre: [link]

I know of the ac 130, but this would operate more like an A10, but with a much higher range and cruising speed. thus all of the armament is forward firing like on an Apache Huey or Cobra helicopter. It would make low speed low altitude strafing runs so it is designed to fire as many projectiles forward as it can as it dives toward a AFV or bunker.

This right here is an Angry Young Mech! ^__^ It gives off a Jim Burns-style ugly menace, like his Gaussi 724 fighter from the book "Mechanismo". It also looks like it will deliver its "cargo" VERY efficiently.

Congratulations on this beautiful piece!!!

the nose section of that ship really does look alot like th nose on my bomber. although ive never heard of jim burns until now, his stuff is incredible though.
