I made this for a contest on the ''SSLF'' that I won alongside legohaulic(tyler kleetis...I think that's how it's spelt), I'm very rpoud of it, it is one of my best mocs, and the best thing is, I can pour my brain and imagination with this kind of stuff , the only restricitons were the color and shape.
There are three versions of this vehicle , the most used version and most advanced is the assault / scout / cargo helicopter , One might wonder how the pilot sees , the cockpit has no windshield for protection purposes.
The vehicle has two stationary modes: number one is hover mode , the engines and wings are rotated so the vehicle can hover(like shown in this picture).
It is armed with one rotary machine gun , two anti infantry /light vehicle guns on the right gun pod , and powerfull auto cannons in the right pod( but this last one still has some overheating problems) and a missiles on the wings, (trans red are missiles are napalm dummies , the grey ones are armor piercing , in other words, hit blow up missiles , red are like EMP or chaff )of course this weaponry does not come without consequences, the helicopter overheats in some minutes or if the weapons are used to much one after one without rest , in seconds, that's why it is equipped with two cold air intakes for the weapons , it also makes it heavy.
The second model is just a modified version for use in space , the rotor is removed, and all ballistic weapons are removed to , it becomes a missile boat , it carries a large ammount of missiles, about double than before , it has more speed and agility and it makes up for it's loss with a single heavy torpedo capable or destroying a medium capital ship with it's shields down.
It needs five boosters to move quickly , that's on of the reasons it's so expensive. It is also a recon vehicle (hence the dark red and black colors in most of the helicopter , the rotor helps to) it can go solo , or , it can carry a small group of 3 scouts in a small compartment that it can carry with the it's tool( a kind of lock located in the tail) or a single hard suit.
The pilot has a special helmet with a visor in which he can see radar readings , the radars are located in the edge of the wings, they're similar to fox ears in shape.
Note: the decal is not stolen from the original, i mean the image directly I just tried to imitiate it , in case you don't alreay know this Justin Stebbins aka ''Saber -Scorpion'' ''Scorp'' ''scorpy warpy'' and all those other names designed that decal for the xarkon pilots.
The design was done thinking of the commander's obsession with having every vehicle shaped into the form of the crown of Xarkon , we managed to create the shape of the crown, while giving a good use to it , another obsession: eincient conquerors , the front armored cockpit is like that one in a knight's ''visor'' and the body is shaped like an arrow in a bow, like the ranged weapons of old ,and the best was done to hide it of radars and eyes with the ''See me , I'm red'' obsession.
Even in hover postion i made sure the crown was visible.
There's a rumor that the opposing nation of Victory is developing it's own Ull MPASVTOLAV under the name of '' longbow heavy fighter'' , one of Victory's highest ranking officers has somehow stolen some of the information of this project.
I made it thinking of what xarkon needed right now, a recon vehicle and a helicopter(it has other uses as i stated above) i always think of the ''underdog''.
I invented that little side story of My charcter in the ' Mordark comic Scorp is making ,because he has contacts with the network , and also becuase I was designing this vehicle for Victory to start with, i even made names for the missiles , I know it's a very long name but I needed to define everything. All of that is true(I mean the description, all the ideas were really intended and not random) just expalined like I was some technician or something.
Oh and don't come saying I'm ripping off justyn stebbins or something giving me a one smile rating, this is for his contest and we're supposed to desgin a vehicle for xarkon.
Incredible. This is one of the greatest creations i've seen in a long time, if not ever. It's like Half-Life 2 Hunter hopper meets Xarkonian military might and some SERIOUS lego talent. You should seriously consider sending the design to lego.
Well...congratulations on tieing for first place with me. A soon as I saw your entry I knew you would have to be firt...I just never thought I'd tie with you. Anyway...absolutely awesome MOC. I actually like it better than mine...its just an incredibly inique design...I'd have named it something that can be pronounced though. 5/5 ~ The Legohaulic
Man oh man, to not dig this pup would be a sin. This is some nice red shizzle if I had ever seen it...which I have. I can't not love the weapons and the "landed" pose is aggresive. More sweet-o than frosted cheerios. Later.
Excellent! What an awesome and intimidating design! I mean, it just looks downright awesome. I don't know any othe way to put it. Not only is the overall design great, but it's covered in intricate details too! I love teh weapons. Wonderful job.
