Northrop Grumman UV-160 Night Hawk II
Special Operations Dropship variant of the A-61b Peregrine.
About this creation
Northrop Grumman UV(Utility VTOL) 610 Night Hawk II

This is the larger variant of the A-61b Peregrine. Used by the USCMF Special Operations Task Force, its primary role is troop transport. An elongated spine carries a small pod designed to hold cargo or up to 6 troops. This pod can be dropped with the troops to provide them cover or soldiers can make aerial drops without releasing the pod. In the event of an emergency, the pod can be ejected by either the pilot or troops inside the pod. Weapons systems have not been altered drastically; the hedgehog grenade tubes have been deleted and the CIMES (Close In Missile Elimination System - modified CIWS) is standard in place of the counter measures suite. The most significant change is in the engine cooling systems. All cooling fins and intakes have been deleted, yet the new engines produce nearly 33% more power and noise volume has been halved.

This set is very awesome! I love the design of the drop pod. Simple and cramped, but with enough detail to make it interesting.

You are getting better and better in very short time. This is your best sci-fi MOC. I like the aggressive shape - this isn't a ship you wanna see coming after you. Your work on functional details is impressive, too. Keep'em coming!

I hate it when I have something to say and it has already been said! Great job on this craft. It looks very sleek, and the size is nicely scaled.

Awesome. All your stuff is great, but this one is under appreciated! Would like to see the cockpit.

Without the "pod crew", it's already an awesome shape, but this pod crew is simply incredible ! It's very well build and fit nicely into the ship. Great work !

Its like a shark-like, badass version of the Pelican from Halo...Without the cr*p of Halo

I love the sleek, almost shark-like lines of this ship. The drop pod is also better than the flat-sided, detail-less, studs-on-top boxes that you usually see on this type of ship. Amazing work.

It looks great. The sleek curves are a definite win. It also reminds me of the drop pod/carrier in the preview for a new game called Section-8. Please tell me if I'm right or else it'll be bugging me for awhile. Keep on building ~ Nowhereman

This is without any doubt one of your best MOCs! if not the best, I really impressed by that smooth curvy design of this ship, and that little Pod really deserves 5/5 by it self, the whole MOC deserves about 6/5! High quality MOC and great photos quality as well, just keep building my good friend >>> peace.. Fofo :)
