Halo Pelican by Euderion Halo Pelican by Euderion
The Dropship Pelican, is an extremely versatile aircraft used by the United Nations Space Command (UNSC). Used mainly for medium-lift operations of various personnel, vehicles and equipment, it can also be used as a powerful support gunship.

The D79-HTC Pelican is mainly used for the rapid insertion and extraction of ground troops. They may deliver vehicles and vital equipment to the battlefield when required. Variations of the Pelican has been in service for over fifty years, and is the primary tactical support aircraft of the UNSC. The Pelican is a multi-role aircraft; it is fully capable of atmospheric flight and can land almost anywhere without difficulty.

The D79-HTC differs quite extremely from its predecessor, the D77H-TCI. Overall, its design is more rounded and streamlined, moving away from the very angular design of the D77 series.

The Pelican is also capable of limited spaceflight, which the UNSC uses as a primary method of delivering troops to the surface from orbit.
In an offensive capacity, the D79-HTC sports two nose-mounted 70mm autocannons capable of an extremely high rate of fire and accuracy over long ranges. More heavily armed variants do exist, with multiple and more powerful weapons.

Its a pillar of the UNSC, along with boots, guns, and tasteless coffee .

As a PC player i was only able to play Halo 1, but i like the design and stories from the Halo Universe. But without first person insight i am reliant on random 3d models i can find here and there for download. Unfortunatly there are nearly no free ship models out there which works in my 3d programs.

I've never played Halo but this dropship makes me think of a futuristic Hind-D. That's one tough bird!

The best Pelican is from Halo 3. Everything 343 Industries has produced is a train wreck of an art design and just abysmal story and world building. I've always hated this needless Pelican re-design.

Yeah... not actually the D77-TC.. The "Bubble Pelican" from halo4 and onwards has yet to be classified I think.

Edit:
Yep friend of mine just confirmed it, the Halo4 pelican is the D79H-TC
