Vigilance Defense Systems now brings the Light Combat Gunship to our standards. Although VDS sponsors several lightweights in terms of helicopter support, a dedicated unit was needed to fill the large gap attack helicopter/gunship. The LCG will now take the said role. Unlike many contemporary attack helicopters, the LCG does not sport an articulate or rotating chin turret. Instead, it is fixed with a smaller 20mm stationary cannon near the nose. Opposite of the said area is small camera and sensor package. To add to the weapon systems, the LCG generally sports two three-rocket anti-tank racks and two anti-air missiles for self-defense. Even with all of this equipment to add a bit of weight, this helicopter is more than capable of out-flying the enemy given it is a great deal smaller. Granted, a heavier airframe will be created to add even more firepower in the future.
Has a rather interesting shape about it; a very unique design at that. Is this the same helicopter you showed me the WIP pictures of awhile back? You're definitely expanding your air power capabilities. Fantastic job yet again, Erik.
EDIT:Fixed a spelling error. :P

Thank ye, thank ye. Actually, the WIP I showed you was scrapped because I didn't have enough of the right hinges to shape the cockpit like I wanted. So, this was rebuilt under the influence of Stephen Chao's GITS work.
Another creative helicopter. I love the white, and the nose is so unique! I really can't find too many problems with this, other than the fact that you should probably smooth out a few rough areas. Great work, it's a nice addition to your collection. I'll be adding my own helicopter in a matter of minutes, so check it out if you ever have spare time...
