R-34 Avenger
Built on an airframe that was meant for something completely different, when the specs came down for a gun platform, the ConVex company had something ready to go.
About this creation
This whole thing turned out about half the size it was going to be. It was nearly entirely built around the retractable landing gear I did as sort of an experiment.

Utterly loaded with weaponry, the Avengers pack a wallop to be reckoned with.

Engines articulate for take-off & hovering positions.


The guns load:
Two 50mm cannon
Two 20mm cannon
Two 12.7mm miniguns
The twin 12.7s can be locked into position or unlocked to free-swinging for hovering attacks.





The original design 'snaked' terribly, so an energy stabilizer was added to stop side-to-side motion.







Oh, one last note, the cockpit design was lifted brick-for-brick from my APU-22 Lynx.

Quoting Areetsa C Maybe, but if the wheels DID fit, you wouldn't need the filler bricks.
I repeat, the struts would not allow for a fit regardless of the wheel diameter.

Quoting Areetsa C Built it around the landing gear, huh? Eh. I've done that too. Well, except my helicopter is twice as long and has wheels half the size of yours, but that's the price of retractable landing gear. Anyhow: could do with more length and maybe smaller wheels. If you took the tyres off, you know, you'd be able to fit the wheels inside those cover things.
The wheels don't fit because of the bricks that are filling it in. The gear struts wouldn't allow for a complete fit, so I filled it in to cover up the empty space.

Firepower + shape = cool!

Well done! However, the only problem I see about it is that it doesn't need the third propeller in the back. But the tail does balance it out though

Your my opponent, should I criticise you? Nah, nice job mate!! Mine'll be up soon! (today probs)

Unfortunately, its way to small to take off. Bigger engines would be better. But it is a good platform for something in the future.
