The ME-48 is a fictional, future, Soviet dropship. It can carry up to six SPETSNAZ commandos. It's only weapon is a 30-cal. machine gun so it relies heavily on support from gunships, fighters, and ground forces.
One pilot controls the whole ship, which is powered by two engines, one for each set of propellers.
In making this MOC, I was inspired by the Republic Gunship from Star Wars and the Pelican Dropship from Halo.
SPETSNAZ deploying. I designed the decals myself and didn't actually look at any real SPETSNAZ in making them, so I'm sure that they are inaccurate. But hey, it's the future so I'll just say they had a wardrobe change.
