"Gryphon" Heavy Gunship
The Gryphon heavy gunship is an extremely well armed VTOL transport that transports troops and vehicles into and out of the battlefeild. Essentially a flying bus bristling with missiles, the Gryphon is a formidable opponent against even the most powerful adversaries. Enjoy!
About this creation
Model: "Gryphon" heavy gunship
Make: G-Force Industries
Crew: One pilot, one gunner, eight soldiers in troop bay (Standard, seated. More can be present when standing or with added seating)
Armaments: Fifty (50) standard air-to-ground missiles, simultaneously firable; two (2) medium air-to-air missiles; two (2) heavy air-to-air missiles; two (2) medium "bunker-buster" anti-building missiles; three (3) heavy "bunker-buster" anti-building missiles; four (4) forward-facing medium repeating plasma cannons; and one (1) heavy gatling turret.


Profile view.


Front view.


One of the two cockpits (inspired by the Dragon VTOL from Avatar)


The "bunker-buster" anti-building missiles.


Six of the air-to-ground missiles (on pod) and one of the two medium air-to-air missiles (on hull)


More air-to-ground missiles.


Even more air-to-ground missiles.


One of the two main engines, primarily used for lift and thrust.


Still more air-to-ground missiles (I used all of my trans-light green cones on this baby!)

One of the four medium repeating plama cannons.


The two heavy air-to-air missiles in firing position.


The gatling gun; my favorite weapon on this ship. Very useful for tearing apart any pesky fighters on your tail.


Back shot. Slightly boring.


The bottom can open to deploy vehicles or troops.


Interior, bottom hatch down.


Some NEOS troops.


Some NEOS specialty troopers. Seen from left to right: NEOS officer, NEOS mech/tank pilot, NEOS medic, and NEOS space ops trooper.


A MAOX mercenary.


And a ninja. Just because he can.


A stretcher and some medkits. In the foreground you can see a NEOS elite trooper, armed with a sawstaff.


The back hatch can open to deploy troops in addition to the bottom hatch.


The NEOS UAV drone and NEOS lancebike that was in the troop bay.


The lancebike's four posable engines provide extreme manuverability as well as unpresidented speed. Getting skewered by an electrolance traveling at over 200mph is never one of the events that happens when someone is describing how interesting their day was.

The UAV is able to scout ahead with maximum speed and minimal detection.


If the UAV is detected, it can defend itself with a light plasma cannon and a self-destruct feature.

This MOC was heavily based off of the Vulture from Halo Wars and the Dragon from Avatar. Since Christmas I've been into building VTOLs and they are extremely fun. I hope you enjoyed this, let me know what you think!

Really, really good, thought the back could use some editing. A gatling gun is a normaly 6 barreled gun that fires rapidly, one barrel a time.

i really like how much thought went into this, it seems well engineered. the one thing i personally have a problem with is the loading bay descending door. its a great idea, but for some reason it just dwarfs the rest of the hanger. i think it might be a little big, but it needed to be big for you to pull it off. nice job on everything else! (not to say that u completely failed on the door, it worked out really well with the exception mentioned that it seemed a little big.)

Quoting Brian peczyna Great detail! I'm not sure how fond I am of the Blue transparent legs, But all in all it's an exellent Moc!
yeah, those were meant to be like a glowing exhaust from the engines. A pretty bad effect, but I just went with it.
