Lore:The Appoloin™ was designed as a primary ground attack helicopter, supporting Paladin ground forces, hunting enemy vehicles, scouting and reconaisance, and hit-and-fade ambush attacks are all part of this versatile helicopters mission profile. These advanced war birds posses the latest stealth rotor technology, making their approach almost silent, this is especially effective in night time assualts. Because the C-490 is a dedicated atmospheric vehicle it possess' obvious limitations, but for what it lacks in limited role's it makes up for in excellence in the ones it does fulfill. Because it utilizes an older technology, namely rotors for lift, it escapes most modern sensor systems designed to locate the emmisions produced by repulsorlift drives, this simple fact allows Appoloin pilots a decisive edge in suprise attacks.
The swarm rockets can be used against ground or air targets, while the heavier missiles are normally pitted against enemy vehicles, weapon emplacements, and structures. The powerful 30mm cannon is a versatile weapon and nicely rounds out this helicopter's arsenel
i like the feel of it but the rotors are way to far back. you should find the center of gravity and put the rotors right above it. it seems that it would lift the tail strait up and ram into a building right after take-off lol. other than that i like it :)
I really like how you put this one together. Once you pay attention to the build it's easy to see that it isn't flimsy but just spindly and that's what gives it an interesting look. Good weaponry also.
