MSA-100 Disciple
VTOLs; Because we can.
About this creation
Who says just because we're 200 years in the future means we can't use propeller technology? The MSA-100 Disciple is proof of the old saying :"If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Using a dual propeller system this VTOL can achieve speeds in excess of 200mph. Two MK.II mass drivers (stolen from Dali Zhengs's Venus Collective) deliver on-demand infantry support in infantry/small vehicle battles.


Note the same cock-pit design as the HSA-100 Archangel. I just love the shape of it, and it works well.


Left profile shot.


The back. Nothing really that special here, but the tail moves up and down in relation to the Disciple's angle.


Right profile shot.


The drop tank can be removed to hold a medium-sized cargo.


Antennae and LIDAR domes.


I fell in love with this design the moment I saw it, and I think it works well with the ship.


Creators comments - This thing took about two and a half hours to build, over a 4 our period. A lot of the time I was side-tracked by Mythbusters. I've been noticing more and more that my best MOCs are the ones I build quickly. Also, final-end-of-the-year-provincial-achievement-tests are coming up, so expect delays as I actually study for the first time in my life.

This thing rocks! I love the fishy profile and the drop tank in the back. Yes, the propes do seem a little under-sized for the lift they would have to produce, but as you say, sombody in the future can figure that out. I like the robust sensor package as well. Attack!

Ok, I'll stop giving you flak about the props. Were you serious about joining the UNE? I tried to join, but it was private. Did you want to send me an invite?

Nice! The curved shape looks great! The black turrets give some nice contrast for the rest of the ship!

How'd you guess? Anyway, I suppose you have a point, but I like the look of it this way.

John, are cheaping-out? "We'll make it work" Sure you will. Are you using super-cupcake material to make the rotors produce lift?
 I made it 
  May 30, 2009
Quoting Ultramarine Skiver Whoa! Really good job! I'm kinda wondering how the rotors can provide reliable lift with less than half of their area of revolution exposed to open air, but it's still a good design!
As I said before, we'll make it work somehow.

Excellent work! Love the SNOT. However, the rotors look as though they are just spinning radar systems; if they had bit more elevation, not too much, then I think this would have a lot more zest on the wings. But who am I to say? Anyhow, excellent inheritance of the Archangel cockpit. All-in-all, fantastic work.

looks great! good colour scheme and I like the cannons...maybe the rotors are too small, those of the Exoforce 8117 - Storm Lasher would work well ^^
