This is Gunner and Zeros ship sttheo.deviantart.com/art/Zero…. I was inspired by one of my favourite WW2 series of aircraft the P 51 and wanted to make my own future version

StTheo I don't know if you've noticed but this person has taken a little too much inspiration from your artwork, I find these concept vehicles eerily similar to your own designs:

This is awesome but it looks way too small to be interplanetary. Unless it has the capability to cover the kinds of distances separating planets in a couple hours the troops would be total basket cases by the time they disembarked. It looks perfect for an intrAplanetary drop ship just not for long hauls.

As it for a stealth team, i cant help but feel the yellow would be somewhat disadvantageous. Having the compact mode is cool, though i could see a need for smaller, hatch like doors for quick disembarking, possible from a hovering elevation.

Looks hardy though.

bright colours would be a visual hindrance, but not many fighter aircraft are visual identified. think radars more the detecting aid and colour isent a problem with that. like the extra hatch ideas!

I thought the reason stealth bombers were black was so they wouldn't be seen at night, but thats beside the point. I was referring more to the fact that its a drop ship, and presumably would need to drop off agents, remain in place or take of undetected, then retrieve the operatives after mission complete. So some form of optical camouflage would be necessary. Obviously if its intended only as a carrier or bomber that doesn't need to land in hostile territory its no so necessary.
If visual camouflage was necessary, and presuming the tech to use a digital camouflage (as in LED, not the pattern) isn't available to you troops, you could have a dark or light blue depending on day or night ops on the underside, with the top half and sides with urban, forest or desert camo based on the environment (these agents of yours seem special enough that they likely take on smaller amounts of highly specialist jobs, if thats the case re-paining for specific climates shouldn't be such a hardship).
I final thought would be if the ship is going to be landed then remain in place until extraction, some camo netting fixed to motorized winches to the top sides of the craft could be useful. I see it as a easy to deploy visual camo that can be winched back quickly in the need for a 'hastey' lift off. If the level of technology is there this netting could be sheets of fabric that could help reduce things like heat signatures from showing.

Anyway, just a thought. Your stuff always makes me think too much XD
