UH-78 Mamba

Post by Bizzle on Sun Aug 28, 2011 3:55 am






The UH-78 Mamba was the main USMC and NATO transport helicopter. Made to replace the UH-74 Blackhawk II in 2036 the Mamba was faster, hardier and able to travel further then the Blackhawk II. The Mamba was equipped with the latest electronic systems and sensors. The main improvement over the Blackhawk II was the addition of an AI. Which made the Mamba require only one pilot.



Specs:
Speed: 194 mph
Combat radius: 598 miles
Ceiling: 19,500 ft
Rate of Climb: 750 ft/s
Max Capacity: 6,700 lbs
Max Troop Capacity: 7


This is my first attempt at a helicopter. And I think it turned out fairly well. C&C are highly welcome and appreciated.

From what I can see it looks great, but we can't see all of it. Could you put up another picture of the whole helicopter please?

Anyway, it looks nice. The rotors seem kind of unstable though. Do they spin? If they do, do they break easily? :scratch:

They might look flimsy but they aren't then spin really well and rarely break.

I do like the overall shape of this helicopter! Nice troop bay, I like the greebling on the exterior and the cord going across that's a nice touch. The pointy nose just doesn't look as nice because it is a boxy sort of pointy.

Thanks CC007! I know what you mean about the nose. I couldn't find a different way to do it at the time. In my mind this is more a Apache styled nose more then anything else. So I feel like it is safe to say that I will be revisiting this MOC in the future. I need to redo the nose, add some landing gear and maybe a spot for waist gunners.

Pretty good for a first helicopter. But maybe instead of the standard bricks on the side you could use an openable/closable container piece. Wink Smile
