Weight statistics seem off, as it seems negligible that a 3 ton aircraft can lift 21 tons and still be safely operational.

Modern and conventional equivalents weigh at least 23,400 pounds (11-12 short tons) in order to carry at least 28,000 pounds (14 short tons) of equipment including a full troop compliment.

The engines also seem to tamper with control aspects of the craft unless both sections are facing in a forward position during flight or in a upwards position during landing and takeoff.

Beyond those discrepancies it is an interesting concept.

Thanks a lot for comment and criticism! :D

Regardless of the lighter alloys, the vehicle all around seems too light to accommodate it's lift load. Plus engines aren't exactly lightweight, so that'd be the main surprise I'm getting from this.

The main weight on a regular air based transport comes from the energy source to power the propulsion systems.
Here, it's a small haltek cold multidirectional microfusion core meant for 250cl of hidrogen isotopes. Using sturdier and lighter materials makes it easier for their techpriests to assemble, which is one of the main goals for this unit - being easy to assemble.

But thanks a lot, edit was made on the dA page. 7 to carry 16.32 sounds a lot more reasonable. I actually had been looking for a good set of numbers to use. :)

I could start this post with a question of why. But anybody having played sufficiently Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge would know why.



The "ASU", or Air Siege Unit variant of the viper chassis.

The ASU, or Air Siege Unit, is based on the Viper logistical Vtol. Trading it's huge carrying potential for a light propulsed fusion shell artillery gun, the ASU is a tyrant of the battlefield. She's relatively fast, cheap, and carries a gun which outranges any tank - but typically reaches shorter than other artilleries and self propelled dedicated guns.

The ASU can be deployed in numbers of 4 to 12, send behind enemy lines, and are able to lay a painful siege. Their guns are surgically accurate, relatively fast, fire fusion explosive shells, and will hit and wreck any target before they are seen.

ASUs are not without their weaknesses however.
An armor which will not survive AA or anti vehicle weapons. No other form of weapons beside the artillery gun, and having a shorter range than other artillery vehicles, the ASU's main strentghs are it's mobility and firepower.

The weapon fires it's payload using laser propulsion. By altering the intensity of the laser and the firing arc, the unit can assess and calculate for surgical accuracy.

The cannon is a 120mm caliber. The fusion shells have an explosive radius of 15 meters, and any target caught in the no survival zone (4 meter) will be vaporised.
