Roofvalk Gunship by HandofManos Roofvalk Gunship by HandofManos
The Veridian Roofvalk VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) Gunship is very similar to the V22 Osprey. The perspective shot here was the inspired from several pen sketches I've been working on before going digital. I think it turned out okay even though it might need some additional detail.

Backstory:

Armed with a chin mounted tachyon gattling gun, side mounted grenade launchers (2x) and up to 4 weaponpods (missiles/gunpods/rocketpods), the Roofvalk is devastating as well as agile.

Powered by two heavy pulse engines for hovering as well as normal flight it has also a mkIV thruster for additional speed.

Ah yeah I understand I do like the Rooivalk attack helicopter and the Elephant MBT. The South African defines industry designs are always quite advanced and quite capable

The first read 12 mm rounds and the other 60 mm grenade shell. And I basically always upload a smaller image then the original. Since those are quite big ;)

One of the best gunships I've seen. I want one and I wish I had designed it! ^^

Thanks it did turn out quite well. I am thinking about making a new gunship though to replace this one or supplement the strike capability of this version.

Thats a nice piece of gunship.
Although I don't understand concept of this cannon. If this is a beam/particle weapon, then why it needs bullets?

Thanks and the cannon is more a railgun I guess so it fires ammo in that capacity. So a typo on my part.

I had thought it used the Tachyons to serve as a kind of guide path to the target, like a targeting laser for an Ion Cannon...
