P0wnzwagen
An Iron Reich Hover APC/dropship.
About this creation
The Iron Reich P0wnzwagen is my first factioned MOC.

It is shaped somewhat like a brick (it is actually about the size of a brick, too), a testament to the Reich's ability to engineer extraordinarily ugly vehicles and a symbol of the manner in which it is supposed to drop from the sky.

Why was the P0wnzwagen built? Because wars cannot be won in space alone. And because I wanted to try out its unusual cockpit configuration. This ship was designed to deliver a 5 soldier squad plus a pilot to a future territory's doorstep, and stick around to provide close air support if necessary.

Enjoy.

   The original P0wnzwagen was built in early 2005. It had virtually no interior. The one shown here is actually a variant with a better interior and additional command and communication equipment on the exterior. P0wnzwagens can also be fitted with medical equipment, and even mobile artillery platforms.

   This part is the front. This ship had to drop from orbiting motherships into various different types of atmosphere, so it had to have a strong front section. This meant doing away with the windows.

   The stereoscopic camera cluster on top is the only way for a pilot to see out of the vehicle. The centered dish antenna is an inverted lever stuck to a common round dish, then sunk in the open part of a 2x3 inverted slope brick.

   The big whip antenna is sooooo circa 1938. But it gets the job done.

   The rear. I can't put my finger on it, but somehow the rear came out looking like an actual modern APC. A bradley , perhaps? The window in the rear is the only window in the whole vehicle, so soldiers inside can see the bullets flying at them!

   Doors open. The P0wnzwagen is wide enough for minifigs to sit down inside, but tall enough for them to stand up upon debarkation.

   Shot of the engines. They are not powerful enough to get the ship back into orbit without an orbital booster frame. This was intentional, as Iron Reich pilots never retreat*!

   In flight. Sorry about the blurriness.

   More blurriness.

   In fact, all my in flight shots are blurry. Maybe it was actually moving or something.



Enlarge image
   Little people ready to disembark.



Enlarge image
   It's actually somewhat ironic. I can build my ground soldiers a nice dropship, but I can't even seem to get them proper uniforms.

   Squad in defensive arc with commander coming out.

   The pilot. Responsible for getting the squad there, but not necessarily back.

   I would have given this guy a nice chair, but his head would hit the roof. The interior has all sorts of encryption machines, secure telephone lines, etc.




*All Iron Reich vehicles seen leaving a battle in a "retreating" manner, regardless of whether they contain IR personnell, are assumed taken over by malicious gremlins and are terminated on sight.

I like it, the pod looks small but hold more men then i thought it would. I can see these flying in over and enemy occupied city. Can they hold anything underneath? Like cargo?

It does look like a U.N.S.C space pod... I still like it though!
