Built for both the UFI and the WC, here's my first 'real' helicopter in over a year. A lot of firsts for me in this one. Enjoy!
About this creation
My first helicopter in over a year. Plus, my first aircraft with a composite canopy.
I just love Pick-a-brick bins!
Anyhow, on to the build:
A speedy, high-power, hard-hitting attack platform for the Western Confederation and the United Federation of India. This beast can reach speeds of 210 mph carrying over 1,800 lbs of ordinance. A full optics suite and 'Look & shoot' interface make the gunner's job easy.
Two-person cockpit has enough room (after pain-staking restructuring from the prototype I built) for two consoles.
Here's the weapons stores. Apart from the main armament of twin 20mm mg's, the UH-10 can boast unguided rockets, AA missiles, anti-tank missiles, and napalm rockets (launching in main pic). External fuel tanks (big, black thingies) give it a range of 900 km.
The gear was fun to build. My first version had tricycle landing arrangement, but I decided against that to 'cut costs' with a non-retractable design.
