Commission - Predator Gunship

The 3rd piece I've done for :iconsabresteen: sabresteen

This VTOL gunship is fairly straight forward. Two jet engine nacelles provide vertical lift capability, and during level flight an additional tail thruster kicks in for extra speed.
A turret cannon (maybe a gauss rifle) on the underside can rain down death, while two weapons pylons allow all manner of missiles and rockets to be carried into battle.

...nice -- how many extra passengers is it designed to carry, pass the needed crew to fly it?..
Shimmering-Sword's avatar
I don't believe that was ever specified. I could carry a squad, or none.

...this was the drop ship that carried those Marines on the movie Aliens, is it not?..

I don't think it looks anything like the dropship from aliens.

The dropship from aliens was combination cobra helicopter and a harrier jet.

It's not even the functional equivalent to the dropship from aliens the Vindicator is lol.

Did some one call for an airstrike?
Very well done. Though, you have a liking for the movie Aliens?

This gunship can't carry anyone except it's too pilots. And is not designed to leave a planet's atmosphere.

This is my universes equivalent to the Aliens dropship.

Thank you. As far as dropships go I don't see much resemblance between this and the one from Aliens.
