MCT-200
Medium Cargo Transport Somewhat stubby, yellow and it flies...like a BumbleBee!
About this creation
MCT-200 BumbleBee
Medium Cargo Transport

Weight: 26 Tons Dry 46 Tons Fully Loaded

Max Service Ceiling: 5700

Max Speed: 750 kph

Range: 1500 km Fully Loaded





A new potential cargo transport for U.N.E., the MCT is a revolution of atmospheric craft; most planetary craft rely on jet engines or some similar devices to provide lift as well as propulsion. The BumbleBee instead boasts technology adjacent to that used on MagLev trains only on a much more precise scale. Whereas a Bullet-Train uses magnetic rails and onboard magnets to propel itself, the Bee uses no rails instead briefly magnetizing nearby materials (air, soil, whatever) to the same polarization as the hull resulting in the pushing force that keeps a Mag Train in the air, alternating the front and back half polarization of the magnetic generators provides movement in any direction. However because it can magnetize most known materials, its service ceiling is not just a few inches, but up to 5700 feet (depending on its load). Actually the closer the craft gets to the ground the more load it can carry because the more material that is available to magnetize, the more repulsion and lift capability is provided.











The MCT is actually driven by a motorcycle-esque control stalk and foot pedals, not joysticks. Aside from a helmet projected HUD the pilot also has two MFD touch screen displays.





These pics with the transparent green UFO parts are just effects demonstrating the basic emitter patterns, in reality youd only see the craft, not the magnetic field it puts out.









The propulsion is not the only unique feature the MCT has to offer. The entire cargo hold opens up, not just a back ramp but the sides as well, resulting in the ability to carry sheer bulk equivalent to most heavy transports as well as load or off load materials 75 percent faster. Though initially designed as a non-combative transport, the Bee can carry 7 fully equipped troops when closed up, but when the sides are open and level can carry up to 13 troops or perform sniper-cover platform and gunship roles when properly equipped.















Id say this is one of the weirder looking MOCs Ive built, but it was a nice break from the usual mech related stuff.

Thanks for Looking!

I love this. It's a really clever idea. I also really like the way it opens up. Well done.

Very, very nice... Aesthetics: 9/10 Excellent looking craft. Color Scheme: 5/5 Definitely the UNE cargo colors. Creativity: 5/5 A great design, and such a detailed write-up. Final total: 19/20

Not bad! I like it, it looks a bit like the dropships from Halo 2. I'd like to see a gunship variant. Your unique weapons designs could yield a very heavy hitting aircraft! Have you thought about a light anti-mech helicopter? Something to provide close air support for your mechs and combat armor? Just a thought, I've seen a few scattered around the site and I think you could build a pretty nice one. Peace - Patrick
