About this creation
LIU Lumberjack Dropship - (LD)



The Ludgonian Industrial Union is proud to present the LIU Lumberjack Dropship. Transport your lumberjacks to the scene, ravage the forest, and then transport your men and lumber home.




The LD has a crew of six: two pilots and four lumberjacks. More will fit inside, but lumberjacks tend to get a bit violent when overcrowded.








To make the LD more spacious, most of the mechanical workings were placed on the outside of the ship.








The LD consists of two sections: the crew quarters and the cargo deck. Crew and equipment are kept in the crew quarters, while lumber is piled onto the cargo deck.








The LD is a VTOL craft. It decends to the surface (usually in the middle of a forest), deploys its crew, and transports their haul back to the LIU Lumberjack Mothership (not shown). There are about twenty LD's on each mothership. A fleet of motherships can easily strip a LIU Forest Planet in a year.






A view of the curved cockpit and the cargo deck below.








A winch on the rear of the LD goes through a pulley on the cargo deck. After your lumberjacks down a tree, the winch is used to pull the tree trunk on board.






A scale was built into the cargo deck allowing the haul to be weighed.








The Interior



Six buzz saws are stored to the right.









Survey equipment and other odds and ends are stored to the left.








The LD's two pilots and their computers...








Action Shots!


The LD
is deployed to the LIU Forest World of Eert. It has been twenty years since the planet had been harvested. The hundreds of Forest Worlds are harvested in a precise order to allow the trees to grow to maximum size.






The crew deploys from the LD. Two are armed with buzz saws, but the other two are armed with Mega-Chainsaws.







This lumber jack uses the Mega-Chainsaw to cut down a thick tree. Note the cut marks. Oh yeah!








Here, a smaller trunk is attached to the winch and pulled into the cargo deck. The deck is quickly getting full.








The crew finishes off this part of the forest and prepare to take their haul to space. A lonely monkey cries next to his former home.








Thanks for joining the LIU and one of its crews on this journey. Please see the cashier on your way out.







Note: One load of trees makes just enough paper for the LIU Finance Governor to send out his monthly nasty-grams. "YOU SPENT HOW MUCH ON GAS!!!"

Good job! This looks like a very cost-effective and safe way to harvest timber (unless the Mega chainsaw dudes go a bit saw-crazy…). Seeing this reminded me of the show "American Loggers."

Fortunately, this was spammed before Earth got wind of the LD's. Things are bad enough already without Brazil or Indonesia getting their mitts on one of these log-gobblers. On the other hand, this might be just what I need for those pesky nose hairs. (they're coming in thick these days!)

"I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay..." I'm not too sure about this style-wise, a brown VTOL-ish thing would look more like the sort of craft you'd want to use for this job. But I can't argue with the design, it has some great detail.

Space lumberjacks? What's next man? Nevermind the idea of establishing a temporary forestry camp, let's just use our lumberjacks who happen to be proficient in space navigation and atmospheric flight.

I just love your cargo/mining stuff Emperor. Oh and where you wrote "has a crew of five" it said "two pilots and four lumberjacks." Good Day
