Aggressor
The Aggressor is a dropship for Power Armor suits.
About this creation
The Aggressor is a heavily armed dropship with space for three Power Armor suits. It's flown and operated by a crew of two.



Enlarge image
   Mech dropships are basically the panel-vans of 31st century combat. So, my challenge was to make a big cargo container look interesting.



Enlarge image
   For the color scheme, I wanted to expand on Soren Robert's Pirate scheme, specifically from his ship the "Lying Bastard". He used mainly light gray, with yellow accents. He also had some components in white, accented with dark red.



Enlarge image
   Maybe I wound up with too many colors, but I kinda like the look. I viewed Keith Goldman's "Ghoul" a lot also while I was building. The Aggressor is a bit over 100 studs long.



Enlarge image
   This transmission is coming to you....
We got it.
All right, you are go.



Enlarge image
   We see the earth, now...



Enlarge image
   I didn't want these to look like "thrusters" per se. I like the idea of a "graviton generator" that would generate a point source gravitational field. The ship would then "fall" in the direction of intended travel. That would reduce the problem of the limited tolerance for g-forces of the human body.



Enlarge image
   Yeah, I know there's holes in the theory. Gimme a break, I'm not a physicist. So anyway, they're supposed to look like graviton generators.



Enlarge image
   Unlike a lot of other big ships I've seen, the Aggressor does not require a stand, but instead can be supported on its front and rear landing skids.



Enlarge image
   So the three doors on each side swing up...



Enlarge image
   ...to reveal the power armor mercenary team inside. Yeah, there's only three of 'em. I figure the other two team members have to fly the ship. Also, more cargo space would have thrown off the proportions and required more parts.



Enlarge image
   I didn't do too much with the interior, but I did install some power cables that connect on the back. When the guy jumps out the door, they disconnect and make a "kssshhh" sound. Actually, I just make the sound myself.



Enlarge image
   The jump-jet equipped power suits wouldn't actually repel down from the dropship, but I thought it would be fun to do the pose anyway.



Enlarge image
   The barrel of the underside point-defense laser is visible just above the mech.



Enlarge image
   "Okay guys, remember where we parked."



Enlarge image
   "Why do I have a funny feeling we're being watched?"



Enlarge image
   The gunner (bottom seat) operates the forward main guns like the arm-mounted weapons of an assault mech. Each side mounts a rapid fire large pulse laser and a powerful particle projectile cannon. I used some of Soren's part combinations for gun muzzles and greebles.



Enlarge image
   The dorsal mounted Gauss rifle, square-barrelled like on Mladen Pejic's multi-leg gun platforms.



Enlarge image
   In case you run out of missiles in the front launchers, you've still got the back launchers. "These go to eleven."



Enlarge image
   This is the first time I've tried really hard to do complete detailing on a model this large. I have to tell you, it was a lot of fun having all that space available for greeble sections and detailing.



Enlarge image
   Didn't I already do a thruster shot?



Enlarge image
   The rear point-defense cannons (for missile defense and/or anti-infantry) are visible in this shot. There's another pair mounted on the front missile pods.



Enlarge image
   The cockpit is basic and functional. The chairs are Paul Hartzog's design. Do a member name search on "Panarch" on B-shelf to check out Paul's cool stuff.



Enlarge image
   Cockpit, main guns, forward point-defense guns, forward missile launchers. The cockpit also bears a similarity to Trevor Pruden's "Orca" dropship.



Enlarge image
   I used one of those little Alpha-Team cargo boxes as a (cramped) airlock between the cockpit and the mech bay.



Enlarge image
   Yes, I greebled the underside too!



Enlarge image
   It's too bad, but I think the bottom may be better-lookin' than the top.



Enlarge image
   ..and I've run out of caption material, one pic too early.



Enlarge image
   That's it, now go build something cool, and post pictures!

Saw this a while back and never commented, how stupid of me! Fantastic design, very over powered, woudl not liek to go up against that in battle and if that is a dropship, your gunships must be one giant gun flying around the battlefield! Fantastic

Love the idea for the graviton generators. The science is all there, and it sounds plausible. Now you just have to figure out how to do it. Giant spinning electromagnets? Maybe used as a gyroscope to balance the ship to send it where it needs to go. I think your on to something! -----SFC Broadwater

Maaaan, that one is just Great, Awesome, Amazing... And all the other words that express a 10 second silence while looking at that thing!!! Actually, I am not a fan of multicolored models (2 colors is OK, 3 will do, but more than 5 ?!) In your case, they all are in a great harmony. Maybe I should start using more colors... I must think...

I am jealous. This drop beast is wicked. The doors are where the action's at. I agree with the other comment about setting up an action "drop in progress", whereas the suits are disengaging from their tethers to lay the smack down on whoever deserves their wrath. The cockpit with the dual top/bottom seats is nicely done and fits with the main fuselage quite nicely. Wicked job. I'm gonna phone my mom.

hehehe, I like the shape of this creation, very functional, nice use of the xpod lids too. Although, and this isn't really a fault of the MOC, just an opinion, it seems to carry too many armaments for a dropship, I always envisaged a Dropship being light and fast with only basic defensive capabilities. makes it dependant on other vessels, this baby looks as if it could wage a war on it's own (Which isn't a bad look mind you) Best part of this MOC. the "kssshhh" sound, I can see it now, or hear it...

First off I just want to say that this is a beautiful moc and fully deserving of 5 stars (or smilies, whatever). I like every aspect about it except that this beast only holds 3 armor suits. Just throwing out ideas but like the guy below me said, I think it'd be cooler with a division of a minifig army, repelling with those ropes into a battle of some sort. Possibly also a crew area with bunks and what not. Anyways, love the missile racks, looks like it could blow up every one of Keith's creations, and possibly even his mom. ~Jon
