The AH-4C StrikePython is the third version of the original design, orginating back to Bell Industries in 2010. This version came into service late 2012, during the second month of the Russo-NATO war, initiated through the fear of American and British airstrikes following the Russian refusal to cut down on their military strength. Along with the Apache, it has become the US Army's mainstay attack helicopter.
This is the fifth time I have updated this, I built the first version last summer, and through the SSLF forums, I got enough C&C to continue with the project and update it. I updated it for the second time in October 2010, with the AH-4B, where I gave it the bulges around the cockpit. I then updated it in January, and again in February. This latest version is hand painted dark green, given a nose camera and I have removed the ugly cone pieces that I used as rockets, and replaced them with Hydra rocket pods, similar to that of the Apache. Notice the Longbow radar on top of the rotors as well.
About this creation
Main view. There is a closer view of the rocket pods, and the helicopter itself. Apologies for the artpad, I needed a background to show off the green colour.
A view of the 25mm HE cannon, the nose camera, and the rocket pods. The pilot can also be seen, the gunner is iin a concealed position in front of the pilot.
Side view, the cockpit window doesn't really go, but I'm happy enough with it.
Please rate and comment, if I get enough good reviews, I shall upload the previous two versions, and my new fighter jet, the F-47 ASF.
