Ever since I started playing Planetside I always felt I was missing a quick air transport. A vehicle that could lay low but provide fire from its onboard weapons and the occupants inside. So, I began looking at ideas for vehicles and one that came to mind was the Blackhawk.
The Blackhawk is a versitle utility air support vehicle, and a vehicle similar to it would be great in my opinion. So for Planetside Next I created an image of the vehicle id like to see. The name my friend and I came in agreement to was the "Warhorse". The Vehicle is an alteration of its larger counterpart the "Galaxy Dropship". The Warhorse would be smaller and more agile much like a reaver. It would however all transport of one pilot, two chaingunners and four occupants sitting on side of open bay. The occupants sitting onside of open bay would be able to fire as well. This would all for snipers to gain vantage points from the sky.
This vehicle would act much like that of black hawk. While hovering in place, occupants will be able to drop from the ship safetly to the ground whether using ropes or aome sort of anti gravity fall from the vehicle. The vehicle would be mounted wiht two small 12mm rotary chainguns for some protection, but most of the survivability comes from the ability of the pilot and the troops below.
In order to construct the blueprint below I drew up a concept idea using the basis of the new Galaxy render for PS:N. Let me know what you guys think
Update 04/17/11 Alteration of Galaxy to fit specifications of Warhorse
Update 04/18/11 : We will be adding a small ten page - Development Manuscript, illustrating and explaining all our ideas for the Warhorse; as well as a proposed Background History. This will be a PDF booklet you can download and read if you choose.
