United Earth Forces UD-12A Gyrfalcon Heavy Transport/Dropship
United Earth Forces heavy dropship used during the Myriad War. Only capable of being carried on large ships such as carriers and battle barges due to size and the large drop actuation system the Gyrfalcon requires.
About this creation












This design is inspired by the Sky Crane from the upcoming game Section 8.

The Gyrfalcon is used to transport large numbers of standard infantry, armored infantry, support vehicles, and/or cargo swiftly into the battlefield. Thanks to its streamlined design the Gyrfalcon is capable of substantially faster entry velocities than most standard dropships. Its size, while highly advantageous in certain situations, limits its use to heavy carriers and battle barges, notably the George S. Patton-class, as such craft can support the large drop deployment system the Gyrfalcon requires for optimal efficiency.

A new version of the Gyrfalcon, the AD-12C, is used by the UEF Marine Special Forces by the Deep Strike Recon regiments. The AD-12C is carried aboard specially modified Archangel-class frigates to within a 20 LY distance of the target zone; the Gyrfalcon then launches, activates its Anmari cloaking suite, and jumps into range of the target. The frigate then serves as a communications hub, allowing the DSR Marines to be monitored by Command. The AD-12C, in addition to the cloak, has a greater weapon loadout, including autocannons, pulsers, and missile and rocket pods, sacrificing some of its carrying capacity.

Awesome ship, but it looks like a short sword fighter from halo wars.

The sleek design is unusual for a dropship, especially one in this small scale. Nice work!
