Well, here she is! The 'Hog'. First of her kind. She is the Assault Version of the Mk. I C/TT class,created by Air and Space Corps. This models name, being the attack version, is 'Mk. I HAA' (Heavily Armored Attack). I am currently disassembling her mid section and adding a troop/cargo bay, which will be called the 'Mk. I HAC/TT'. (Heavily Armored Cargo/ Troop Transport), which will consist of few weapons, and lots of storage area for troops and cargo. I expect that version to be done next weekend. Till' then, enjoy this!
About this creation
A closeup of the under side of the forward section.
This is the bottom, front section of the 'Hog'. You can see the forward gear, the main landing light, the main comms. antenna, the underside of the radar, and the air intake vents on either side of the wheel well.
The forward gear in the 'Down' position.
The sonar system. For those of you who don't know what sonar is, it's basically underwater radar, used for sub hunting, searching, or salvage diving. Since this an aerial sonar, it can only see about a 15 mile radius and about a mile down into the water, but it works perfectly for close range targets.
A close up of the 360 degree radar array. It sees all. In every direction, including up and down, for 120 miles around.
The open cockpit. I didn't put much detail into it. When I create the troop version, i may, but probably not.
A view of the cockpit, the wing attaching to the fuselage, and the thick armor plates surrounding the pilot, called the 'Metal Bathtub', the name A-10 pilots give their cockpits, due to the fact that it is basically a metal tub that they sit in, which protects them. The canopy is also bullet resistant up to .50 cal. machine gun fire.
Close up of the .50 cal backup machine gun on the port side.
The huge flaps and fins in the neutral(0%) position. Note the enormous surfaces for maximum lift and the highest level of control.
The enormous rudder in the 50% position.
The rear elevators in the 50% down position. As you may have noticed, the entire fin can also move up, down, and twist back, and forth in-case extra lift is needed. You can also see the backup machine guns on the stabilizer mounts.
Her hind end. If you look closely, you can see her winch. It's usually not in use, but if there is something that needs to be retrieved from the ground, she can do it to a certain extent.
A side shot. She don't look too pretty from this angle, but then again, that's what people say about the A-10 Warthog, and it's one of the best attack aircraft out there...
There's an engine you wouldn't want to fall into!! There are actually duel rotors on each engine, which spin in opposite directions for maximum lift and control.
This is the left wing, consisting of -1x 2000lb unguided bomb -2x Sub/ship Killer Torpedoes -a search light(the round thing with the green piece) -2x communications antennas -1x missile pod, consisting of 25 small rockets (up to 4 can be fired at a time) -the main wing landing/strobe/ and emergency lights -and the huge 20,000 horsepower rotary engine(that's a lot of ponies!!!)
The front of the 'Hog'. Ain't she pretty?
1-I will be removing all of the weapons from this craft, pulling the tail, and adding a middle section, consisting of a troop bay, and adding another 6 inches to the craft.
Completion date: next weekend Posting date:next weekend
2-I will remove the troop bay after i post it on MOC, and add a clamp system to carry a Humvee or Jeep
