VDS Utility Air Cushion
With combat becoming more adaptive, so must the transport systems that go along with it. The UAC is this adaptation. The Utility Air Cushion utilizes the same basis as all other hovercraft, but more suited upon military standards. The enclosed troop bay that extends relatively the whole body length offer maximum capacity and protection. The platoon of troops inside the hovercraft aren't the only weapons this vehicle has. Featuring two forward 12.7mm CROWS and one rear dual 12.7mm active air protection system (often abbreviated AAPS). However, lead isn't always the best defense. The speed and range of this vehicle is most likely the best asset it has. Able to travel 830 kilometers at speeds excess of 148 kph makes this a capable craft that can outrun much larger threats. The compact size also makes it the primary intermediate transport from amphibious assault ships to the LZ.

Great job on this; your creations never disappoint. I like how the cargo compartment in enclosed, gives it a much more armored feel. A fantastic addition to the SSW military.

This is really cool. I love the concept of a troop transport hovercraft, and this build is really great as well. I love your style with the snotted sides, they look fantastic. Any chance I can purchase some of these? ~T

I was going to order those black pieces, but they had a bad vibe.
