Post-Apoc: Falcon Assault VTOL
I'm not in a dark age, I'm just not very bright
About this creation
The Honda-Ziplok Clan Priest-Mechanics salvaged two strange propulsion devices from an Ancient aircraft on the outskirts of a city. The purpose of the strange pipes inside the engines is still unknown to even the wisest Priest-Mechanics, but the engines also contained what looked like propellers. The Priest-Mechanics ripped out the pipes and installed internal combustion engines. The Falcon Assault VTOL became a common sight on the Mini-Soda front, its massive engines carrying it into battle far ahead of the Honda-Ziplok dirigibles and gyrocopters.






In hover mode. The wings can be used as giant air brakes to slow down quickly. The vehicle carries only two people besides the pilot, a rear gunner and a passenger.






Top view. You thought I was gone for good this time, didn't you? Admit it. Actually, I have been building all the time, but never got around to posting anything. I have some more Post-Apoc and microspace which should be up in a few weeks.






Side.









Front. The forward gun is mostly used as a fixed-forward weapon in flight, but can rotate to attack enemy troops while the VTOL is in hover mode. It is equipped with a spotlight, and the gray cylinder on the side is an ammo drum.






Back. Most of the "ornamentation" on Honda-Ziplok vehicles is from various prestigious kills that the vehicles made. The skull on the tail belonged to the pilot of a Nomad Raider Landship who was shot by the rear gunner, causing the landship to veer out of control and fall into a ravine.






Science: mounting internal combustion motors inside jet turbines to drive the blades would actually work fairly well. About 90% of a turbofan engine's thrust is provided by the spinning blades; the stream of hot air blasting out the back of the engine is mostly there to provide power to rotate the blades. The turbine wouldn't spin as fast under motor power, but this is a much smaller vehicle than the Boeing 737 which the engines came from, so it all evens out.

I wonder why there's no review for this great MOC. LOTS of ideas, a funny touch (the skull), and overall, a skilled, clever and nice creation !!! Hope you'll post more often !
