Slamfist by MOAB23 Slamfist by MOAB23
The Hale/Attack/Cargo - Model 30 'Slamfist', is a unique variant of high subsonic heavy ground attack and transport aircraft used by the Escean Air Force and Navy.

Unlike previous or comparative aircraft of this type, the HAC-30 is an amphibious plane, giving it the ability to land both on paved or water runways to refuel or rearm. Introduced in 2101, this aircraft is equipped with a tandem 'hollow delta' wing design that elimintates the need for a tail, retractable float units and overwing engines to avoid seawater ingestion. The fuselage is fitted with a knife-edge keel and blister tanks to help support the aircraft in the water.

While the Slamfist can carry up to twenty soldiers its primary role is that of a heavy weapons platform. Retractable doors on both sides of the fuselage permit internal weapons to move into position on either side if required, with the weapons themselves mounted on rails and turntable units. Slamfist aircraft are typically equipped with eight individual systems, including two fuselage and two bow-mounted 40mm Repeating Railguns, two 20mm Rotary Railguns, a 200mm KAP (Kinetic, Accelerated Projectile) Cannon, and a weapons bay built into the keel, which may hold standoff cruise missiles or guided munitions. The inclusion of forward-facing bow cannons and belly weapons bay was to give the aircraft the ability to strafe a target at high speed instead of always assuming a relatively slow and vulnerable circuit.

Thanks :D

Also, in a considered plot scenario, ends up dropping something a little more substantial than troops alone ;)

Hehe. It's been a while since I played the older AC games like 5 and 0 on account of switching over to a PS3 and PS4, but I do remember that flying monstrosity from Zero. I've seen a few other works of similarity that jogged my memory and helped with the wing design.

I love the exhausts which make your craft look like a stealthy nighthawk! :D Great for avoiding those pesky SAMs... ;-)
