About this creation


Talon is a VTOL Transport designed for Air Assault Operations. It has a cargo capacity roughly equivalent to the C-130. True to its mission, the Talon is heavily armed and armored. It can deliver 60 troops or three Gun Tracks per sortie .



It’s total weight when combat loaded results in high rate of fuel consumption and subsequently a severely limited operational radius. It is not capable of long range operations without the support of in flight refueling.



Talon is heavily armed in order to ensure access to designated landing zones and to provide immediate post deployment fire support to assaulting troops. The bulk of Talons armaments are housed in the nose section of the aircraft. During transit to and from assault objectives and during administrative movements, Talon operates with these armaments stowed.



She is equipped with two 8 barreled 25 mm autocannon and 16 MK 3 missiles. The autocannon can fire depleted uranium armor piercing, and incendiary rounds at the gunner’s discretion. The MK 3s are a mix of General Purpose High Explosive, High Penetration “Tomb Makers”, and Phosphorus incendiary. The specific MK3 load is determined just prior to each sortie based on the latest intelligence.



Here we see Talon 14 during the October 07' Omicron Weekend operation. Here are some Talon-related links:

Wow, That looks massive, as in, if it was real it would be HUGE and awesome. Love the detail work, the landing gear, and the weapons on the sides of the cockpit. Excellent work, I kinda want to play with it!

Hey, your creations are great. The use of parts and colors is really well thought out and intentional. I see from your homepage that you like constructive criticism. I am cut from the same cloth. I looked at a lot of your MOCs and the only really big thing that I see for improvement are your photos. This MOC in particular. I know it is older from 2009 but it would show of the design and your skill a lot better with improved pics. My advice is get a big piece of poster board for the back ground. I also try to take my photos during the day preferably when it is overcast so shadows aren't present and a flash is not needed. I hope this helps and will be watching for new builds!

Completely amazing how you were able to create such a unique looking aircraft, but maintain a measure of familiarity to the big transports. An incredible piece of work!

i find the shape a little odd, but, it s full of great ideas, and rare parts, the color scheme is also very fitting, i had seen only PART of your landing pad, i looked at the link you provided for the omicron week end, and if i ever need a bit of modesty, i ll go there! as it s just...MIND BLOWING AWESOME!!!this base, with bunkers and equipment is a DREAM! i fell off my chair when i saw this! it s superb!!!

Your military experience shows when you build armor and and weapons in your mocs. This is great I really like the ramp on the back end of it. Keep it up!

Built like a brick sheet-house! I know, I know, she's beefy but handles like a Cessna. Unfortunately the link to Keith's post no longer exists, so I'll head over to Flickr and see if I can find a shot of her sweet posterior.~H

Those circular sections on the wings are really gorgeous. Impressive ship with an unique look !

I have a theory that a VTOL plane doesn't need large wings because the lift force it requires to take off is mostly provided by vectored thrusters(as in Harrier).But then again your plane probably weights a(hundred) ton(s), so it will need all the lift forces it can get.Attack!

Flare, thanks for the feedback. Unfortunatly, I am currently working abrod and building, let alone posting anything seems highly unlikely. The only other stuff I have on line at the moment is over on Keith Goldmans flicker account. Search "Traders of the rift". Hope you like it. Attack!

This has a very classic design that I love. The color mixing actually works well here, making it look like a realistic future version of a C-130.

This is huge! I wish our military have a few of these. I like the hidden weapons you made. The 25 mms are looking good. I wonder how many lives it took away.x0 Com'on now, why didn't you take one picture of the inside of the VTOL? One of my favorite mocs from you by the way. ~ Ghostman :)

All, Thanks for the feedback. Special thanks to Keith "Army Strong" Goldman for his work with the techonlogically challanged. The inclusion of my kitchen furniture is unfortunate, but I failed to document this beast properly in 07. She was built exclusivly for public display. This posting was an afterthought. Attack!

Talon brings a tear to the eyes of all those valiant State workers from the early Condor program on. Das Kapital has achieved heavy airlift capabilities much to the despair of its' neighbors. Those retractable gun turrets are "Da Bomb". Steve Galveston always prefers to tour this aircraft at the annual airshow. I think it's time to head on over to the "Beef Kiosk".

That thing is just big and bad a... you get the idea. Oh, and a simple way around the "time out" feature. Do all your work, loading pics and all your text but don't do the main pic or title yet (just to save time). Copy all of your work first and then go out of the page and back in (you may have to sign back in depending on time). Then all you do is paste your work back to the page and then add your main photo and title and what not. Hope that helps. ~ Chris.

I am still fighting with the posting system. I have about 10 other images, and some text...but I can't get anything past the time out clock. I will try to "edit" again tomorrow.

All. I am having great difficulty uploading images to MOCpages. I am getting timed out constantly. Therfore, I am affraid that I will have to post these images one at a time (each new image being an "edit" to the posting). Seems awkward...but it's the only way I can doge the time out. Attack!
