IDF "Stormhawk"-class Pocket Gunship
The IDF "Stormhawk "-class Pocket Gunship is a small, highly maneuverable craft bristling with weapons. It was designed to give immediate air support and quickly establish air superiority. Its weapon systems boast four air to air missiles, twin Hydra-70 air to surface rocket pods (despite the fact that the outside tubes only have four studs, a real Hydra has about ten rockets per pod), and a belly-mounted machine gun with armor piercing rounds. Its firepower is hampered by the fact that there is no gunner, and the pilot has to both fire and fly at the same time. Despite this, the Stormhawk is still very effective at securing hot LZís and subduing enemy forces. The landing gear is comprised of large metal balls set in magnetic cradles, which allow the Stormhawk to roll in any direction during prep for launch or parking. The thing that I hate most about posting MOCs is all of the trouble I have writing up a decent intro. Iím going to keep this one short and at least semi-sweet.
About this creation
Built for my new theme "Biohazard."



Like I said, I'll keep this short and sweet. Front. How's that for short and sweet?



Side. The turbines can straighten out to revolve for extra maneuvering ability.



Back. Boring.



Side detail. Those black cones on the sides are air intakes. Not weapons of any kind. My entire family was asking, "Are those, like, super missiles or something?" My answer: no.



Weapons. From left to right: air to air missiles, Hydra-70s.



Machine gun mounted on belly. Notice the landing gear behind it.



Pilot. Say hi. Now.



Cockpit. Cool chair. Yes?



Minifig for scale. Looks bigger than it is.



Bye bye.

Quoting Andrew Somers Nice gunship Baboon. My only complaints are the somewhat-less-than-aerodynamic nose and the underbelly machine gun. With the machine gun... run outta creativity? Anyway, nice job though.
Quoting Jason Dominguez I like the overall design for this gunship. The underbelly gun needs a little work, but it looks good overall.
Quoting Metal Matt Pretty cool gunship. I like the overall design, though the nose & MG could use a little work.
You all have the same issues! LOL. Actually, I tried several different gun designs, and decided that I wanted a MG that I could use everywhere. My IDF hardsuit is carrying one, too. Think of them as general-purpose.
